To be a credentialed coach at a sanctioned nonqualifying competition, coaches must meet the compliance requirements listed below and verified by the U.S. Figure Skating. Coaches must be included within a skater’s registration or updated through their EMS Skater Portal.

All coach compliance is verified via EMS and is connected to the U.S. Figure Skating database. The compliance tab within EMS lists ALL individuals who were declared by skaters at the time of registration or through their EMS Skater Portals (also allows access to skater schedule, music/PPC preview etc.). The compliance requirements are tied to our database and are updated daily. Further, if a coach is non-compliant, they will receive system generated emails through the start of the competition.
