Figure skating

Figure skating is one the few judged Special Olympics sports. Special Olympics Figure Skating features singles and pairs jumps, lifts and many feats of strength and precision. Ice dancers concentrate on interpreting the rhythm and tempo of music through dance steps on the ice.

Special Olympics athletes can also participate in  Figure Skating Ice Dancing and Pairs events. Special Olympics Unified Sports is a program that combines Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (partners) on sports teams for training and competition.

A Unified ice dancing or Unified pairs team would consist of one Special Olympics athlete and one partner. Note that for Unified Sports figure skating training and competition, it is preferred that the pair be of similar age; it is required that the pair possess similar skating ability.

As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped in competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender.
