DEI RESOURCE SPOTLIGHT
The Skating Accommodation Memorandum (S.A.M.)
U.S. Figure Skating's Adaptive Skating Committee created the Skating Accommodation Memorandum to foster equitable skating standards for skaters with disabilities, develop increased opportunities for skaters with disabilities to continue their skating growth and support reasonable accommodations to do so. A skater with a documented disability may request exemption from or modification of certain technical rules on the basis that such rule penalizes them in the marking of the assessment and that such rule is peripheral to the skating skill to be demonstrated for testing and 6.0 non-qualifying competitions.
