  • NorthEast Racing Series - This division is for skaters age 12 years or older as of 7/1/22 that can meet the qualifying time. It targets skaters looking for a competitive experience, and aims to promote a strong pipeline of future National, World, and Olympic competitors for US Speedskating. The 1000m qualifying time for males is 1:48.00 and 1:58.00 for females. The time must have been achieved in a sanctioned competition between 7/1/21 and the registration deadline. Competitors must be registered members of US Speedskating, Speed Skating Canada or another ISU member country. Be sure to supply a 1000m qualifying time.
  • Ability - All other skaters will compete in the ability division. Consideration will be given to the age of skaters in each group. Skaters 10 and under will skate on the track (85m or 111m) most appropriate for their level. Please supply representative seed times to the best of your knowledge, such as time trial times or USS Coach certified times achieved in practice. For skaters 10 and under, please supply a 255m qualifying time (3 laps on 85m track) if available.
  • Novice  - This division is for skaters in their first year, and never having raced in a USS or SSC sanctioned meet. If unsure about eligibility, please discuss with the skater's coach or contact the meet director before registering.
