Untitled[edit]

Highest possible collegiate event for figure skating in the United States & and considered a national championship by USFSA, US Figure Skating Association.

I don't think this is the "highest possible collegiate event" -- that would most likely be considered Figure skating at the Winter Universiade, for which the USFSA has used its national collegiate competition as a qualifying event in recent years. But note that neither competition is considered to be at the "highest level" of the sport as far as the USFSA is concerned; competitors are explicitly not considered part of Team USA or eligible for funding or assignment to a team envelope, per the USFSA's published policy].

You've short changed the statement. In entirety, "It is the highest level at which figure skating takes place at the college level in the United States" is a true statement as there is no higher collegiate event in the US. Winners are eligible for international competitions and able to represent the United States in international competitions if USFSA selects them. While these may not be ISU JGP events, they are still representing the USA and have to be selected through a committee process.

Eh, you(?) changed the original statement after I pointed out it was incorrect.  :-P Dr.frog (talk) 14:00, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Correct Name - U.S. Collegiate Figure Skating Championships[edit]

The correct name of the competition is U.S. Collegiate Figure Skating Championships.

See: http://www.usfigureskating.org/content/2012-13styleguide.pdf#page=1

Any objections to changing the article's title?
