The Foundation's primary goals are to enhance USA Hockey's mission and activities; to provide funding for education and training of high-performance athletes; and to provide opportunities for great participation throughout the country. 20 / JANUARY.FEBRUARY.2021 USICERINKS.COM , Founded in 1921, U.S. Figure Skating is one of the first U.S. Olympic sport governing bodies to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Throughout the year and culminating with the 2022 Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Nashville, Tennessee, the organization will celebrate figure skating's everyday heroes, once in a lifetime icons who have inspired generations of skaters and the support network behind every skater and each member club across the nation during the Centennial Celebration. "Even though these current times are difficult, we are excited to celebrate U.S. Figure Skating's historic milestone throughout 2021 with pride and honor," U.S. Figure Skating President Anne Cammett said. "The Centennial Celebration will recognize those individuals and moments in time that have helped to shape and define this extraordinary organization. From day one when the organization's founders inked the association's constitution in 1921, the mission has always been about expanding opportunities and sharing our passion for ice skating, and for 100 years, U.S. Figure Skating has provided the pathway for people to enjoy this sport." U.S. Figure Skating worked with Denver-based agency Communication Strategy Group (CSG) to develop a special logo that will be used throughout 2021. CSG also worked with a collection of U.S. Figure Skating staff and volunteer members to develop a Centennial Celebration plan that focuses on three core areas of engagement: content, experiences and philanthropy, with a strong focus on digital and virtual interactions during the first half of 2021. Additionally, the organization's original shield logo will be reintroduced with the anniversary logo and will be featured in a line of limited edition memorabilia in the U.S. Figure Skating online store and at events.
