Registration now open!
We are so excited to finally be able to host this competition. With guidance from US Figure Skating we have developed a comprehensive Health and Safety Plan that should allow all of our competitors, coaches, families and officials to enjoy the event and feel safe at the same time. We were only allowed to have Bluebonnet because of this plan and expect that all participants will honor it to assure a successful competition. The new Crossover facility will also be a special treat for everyone.
