The 2021-22 U.S. Qualifying Season competition info thread is in GSD: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/threads/usfs-2021-22-qualifying-season-announced.108191/

There already have been quite a few club competitions in March, April & May and I plan to re-post highlights that @natsulian shared in the U.S. Ladies thread in GSD - edited to add, first, from March 2021:
Isabeau Levito debuted as a senior lady domestically, scoring 67 in the Short Program at the Denver Invitational event.

Levito attempted 4T (fell, downgraded <<) in her Senior FS, scoring 116.06 (scores were not combined in this club comp.): http://ijs.usfigureskating.org/leaderboard/results/2021/29750/SEGM012.html

Max Naumov skated a nice SP, landed 4S and 3A. Ryan Dunk landed 3A 2-footed but fully rotated and a good 3Lo-3Lo combo.
Naumov opened his SP with his first quad in competition (Salchow) :cheer: then landed 3A & 3Lz+3T (86.60); Ryan Dunk was 2nd (70.26) - protocols: https://ijs.usfigureskating.org/leaderboard/results/2021/29881/SEGM023.html
Naumov's SP without audio can be watched at the 4-hour-41 min. mark of the Colonial Open Friday Rink 1 Pt 1 archived video (he was the first of the 3 Senior men and Dunk was the final skater of the event): https://www.facebook.com/visionphotovideollc/videos/442894560332417
I only saw the tail end of Lindsay Thorngren's SP but it looks like she's keeping last year's (at least, the dress is the same).
Yes, Lindsay wore the same SP dress from Nationals when she skated to the "Writing's on the Wall" cover by Sofia Karlberg. She won the Senior Ladies SP (60.76), skating first at the 3-hour-5-min. mark of the same FB video. Her jumps were 3F, Ina-2A, & 3Lzq+3Lo< - protocols: https://ijs.usfigureskating.org/leaderboard/results/2021/29881/SEGM018.html

ETA:
Levito attempted 4T (fell, downgraded <<) in her Senior FS [back in March], scoring 116.06
In preparing for her delayed JGP debut, Isabeau Levito won the Junior Ladies Combined event with a total score of 175.81, 114.66 in the FS. She popped her opening planned 4T into a double and then landed the rest of her planned jumps: 3Lz, 3Lo, 2A / 3F+2A, 3Lz+1Eu+3S, 3F - her performance without audio can be watched starting at the 2-hour-47-min. mark: https://www.facebook.com/visionphotovideollc/videos/511014660082277

2021 U.S. Junior pewter medalist Jacob Sanchez attempted his first 3A in competition in his Junior SP on Friday (fall, downgraded). He wore his bright orange/yellow "Footloose" costume from Nationals.

Colonial Open Saturday results:

Senior Ladies combined event top 6:
1 Lindsay Thorngren, Ice House Of New Jersey FSC 60.76 (1) 123.27 (1) 184.03
2 Shan Ashley Lin, Chinese Skating Association 57.24 (2) 119.59 (2) 176.83

FS protocols https://ijs.usfigureskating.org/leaderboard/results/2021/29881/SEGM019.html

Thorngren landed 8 triples (both 3F received edge calls; her final 3Lo didn't count because it was her 3rd repeated triple), including 3Lz+3Loq and 2nd half combos 3F(e)+3T & 3Lz+2T+2Lo. For those who want to watch her FS without music (program was choreographed by Benoit Richaud), she starts skating at the 5-hour-19-min. mark of the FB archived video: https://www.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=6279093175449850
She was 2nd to skate in the final group, after Lin and before Izzo.

Senior Men top 2 (3 competed):
1 Maxim Naumov, SC of Boston 86.60 (1) 116.98 (1) 203.58 - rough day on the jumps he landed yesterday with falls on 4Sq, 3Aq, 3A<<
2 Ryan Dunk, Baltimore FSC 70.26 (2) 112.88 (2) 183.14

Junior Men top 2 (3 competed in the combined event):
1 Jacob Sanchez, Hudson Valley FSC 56.01 (2) 114.20 (1) 170.21 - tried his first 4T (fell, called <<) & rotated 6 triples, 4 cleanly
2 Philip Baker, Colonial FSC 57.47 (1) 98.08 (2) 155.55

Katie Krafchik, 12, won the Novice Ladies combined event on Friday night, scoring 92.67 in the FS (attempted 5 triples through flip which is new for her this season), 140.79 total. She won the 2020-21 Championship Series national event (Novice FS) and is keeping her FS music to a Charlie Chaplin medley, according to the article about her that's linked here: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/th...-2021-us-nationals.107891/page-3#post-5997629

Maryn Pierce was the only national/high level skater at Heart of America in Shawnee, Kansas this weekend - her Junior protocols:
SP (62.91; landed 3F, 2A & 3Lz+3T): https://ijs.usfigureskating.org/leaderboard/nonqual_results/2021/29961/SEGM018.html
FS (95.94): https://ijs.usfigureskating.org/leaderboard/nonqual_results/2021/29961/SEGM025.html

Seattle Ice Fest Friday results:

Lucas Broussard was the only Junior man who competed (Mindra WD) and debuted an up tempo jazzy SP, landing his opening 2A & 3F in the 2nd half; he fell on the 3Lz of his planned 3Lz+3T combo & scored 51.37.

Junior Ladies SP won by Josephine Lee (recently added to the ISP) with a good score of 60.59. She landed 3T+3T, 2A & 3F and skated to "Please Don't Make Me Love You" from Dracula the Musical.

2020 Senior national competitor Alex Evans won the Senior Ladies SP with a score of 57.11, landing 3Lo+2T, 2A & 3Sq. She skated to "Walk Away" by Christina Aguilera.
Alena Budko was 2nd with 55.27, landing 3Lz+2T, 2A & 3F(e)< (couldn't ID her music but it was unusual & suited her style, IMO).
Starr Andrews was 3rd with 53.32 - jumps were 3Fq+2T<, 2A & 3Lo<. I saw her land a 3F+3T in the 6-min. warmup via the livestream and presumably this combo was the goal for this event. She had debuted her SP to "At Last" by Etta James at the La Jolla Open club comp. last month where she landed 3T+3T & her other jumps cleanly and received all level 4s on spins/steps.

Copying over from the U.S. Ladies thread (May 16, 2021):
Kanon Smith (13) attempted a 3A for the first time in competition today. Although it was deemed downgraded, I’m excited to see her try it out in competition. I’m hopeful that as her training progresses throughout the year, she will be able to land a clean one.
Soho Lee (12) placed second, landing a 3Lz+Eu+3S and scoring above 90 in the Free. Lee recently got her 3Lz, so I’m glad she’s already putting it in combination. Lee is not eligible for the Junior Grand Prix until next season.
Protocol for junior ladies: https://ijs.usfigureskating.org/leaderboard/nonqual_results/2021/29957/SEGM027.html
La Jolla Open results/protocols: https://ijs.usfigureskating.org/leaderboard/nonqual_results/2021/29957/index.html
Notable scores:
Senior Ladies SP only: Starr Andrews 66.38
Junior Ladies: Kanon Smith 63.78 (SP) & 107.64 (FS); Soho Lee 92.35 (FS only)
Junior Men SP only: Matthew Nielsen 61.41, Goku Endo 55.88; Michael Xie 55.60 in a separate SP exhibition

I'll try and update the Seattle Ice Fest's Junior/Senior results here after the events end late tonight.

ETA:

My highlight from Ice Fest on Saturday was Lucas Broussard's debut of his Junior FS (he performed very well to modern orchestral/mainly strings music which sounded vaguely familiar by the end). He scored 122.97, landing 7 triples, including 3Lz+3T and 3Lz in the second half - his protocol: https://ijs.usfigureskating.org/leaderboard/nonqual_results/2021/29943/SEGM045.html

Josephine Lee won the Junior FS (85.46), skating to selections from the Don Quixote ballet. Despite falls on 3 jumps, she ended strongly with 3Lo+2T and 3F+2T.

Senior Ladies FS top 2 were Alena Budko (87.32) who had a Spanish/tango-themed program (think I heard "Besame Mucho" in the female vocal part in the second half) and Alex Evans (80.38) who skated to selections from Sunset Boulevard.

Do you have a schedule for Dallas Open? I may go by and watch
Just be aware that the Safety Plan section of the website states:
Chaperones/Spectators: Skaters may have up to 2 chaperones and immediate family members attend their events as spectators being allowed inside the Arena into specific assigned seating areas during each skater’s assigned event times only (see POD schedule for exact arrival and departure times). Chaperones/Spectators will be required to exit shortly after each event to allow for cleaning and separate use by next groups. Chaperones/Spectators must follow flow path, POD arrival/departure schedule, mask wearing and social distancing directions and utilize their assigned large bleachers area while inside to ensure a safe space for all.
This seems to be the standard operating procedure for club competitions so far - spectators/fans are not being allowed in to "just watch" the competition unless you're connected with a competitor. This policy is likely change as the summer progresses, however (the Philadelphia Summer Championships Announcement says there will be an admission fee for spectators, for example).

Skate Dallas starting orders/results page: https://ijs.usfigureskating.org/leaderboard/results/2021/29935/index.asp
There are 2 ISP ladies competing - Jessica Lin in the Senior combined event and Tamnhi Huynh in Junior (ETA that Huynh is now listed as WD).
