American Dream ( is an unparalleled mix of world-class entertainment, retail and dining, home to leading attractions including DreamWorks Water Park, Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park, Big SNOW Ski Hill, and much more comprising more than 3 million square feet just minutes away from NYC in the NJ/NY metro area, home of Garden State Speedskating.   

We are excited to start a new format for the popular USS/MASA regional competition hosted by GSS each year on the Martin Luther King weekend - New this year, racing will be conducted over two days, in the mornings on Saturday January 14 and Sunday January 15. All participating athletes, officials/volunteers, families, and friends of GSS will receive a 20% discount code to enjoy all that American Dream has to offer throughout the entire weekend, from Friday to Monday January 13-16, 2023. 

We are working on live-streaming on YouTube for the racing events, we also work with the American Dream media team to maximize the digital displays in the AD mall during the two days' events, which expect tens of thousands of passerby spectators. To further leverage the unique venues at AD and to increase our sport visibility, we’d like to ask all participating teams/clubs to provide GSS your team banner,  with grommets and about ~2.5’x4’ (landscape) in dimension, they will be tied/displayed on the safety mats; a $50 donation to GSSC is suggested to help support the weekend activities. Please contact us if you have or are interested in additional advertising and sponsoring opportunities. 

We will host ~125 athletes in this year’s USS sanctioned ability meet; the elite NEST 3 racing series requires both age and time qualifications governed by NEST R&Rs. 

Online registration opens at 9:00AM EST on Sunday, November 27, 2022. Previous GSS hosted meets are all sold out, from under one day to just a few days. Please inform your skaters and have them ready to register ontime. 

Detailed meet info, block of rooms at nearby hotels, online registration link will be forthcoming.
