Due to rising concern about COVID-19, the U.S. Short Track Age Group Nationals, scheduled for March 20-22 in Green Bay, Wisconsin, will not take place.

“The safety of our athletes, members and staff is paramount,” said US Speedskating Executive Director Ted Morris. “With the uncertainty surrounding this virus, we feel postponing the event is in the best interest of our skating community.”

US Speedskating representatives worked closely with health officials in Wisconsin to monitor the COVID-19 situation to determine if the event could be held as planned. It was determined the event could possibly put athletes and members at risk.

USS has not ruled out the potential to host the event later in the year, but rescheduling will be determined at a later date.

USS would like to thank the Cornerstone Speedskating Club, Cornerstone Community Ice Center, Visit Green Bay and the De Pere Health Department for their cooperation.
