Didn't feel like starting a thread so I'll include this "feel good" press release in this one, published last week by USFS (July 25, 2022):

U.S. Figure Skating shattered its membership record for the 2021-22 season, the national governing body announced today. With a total membership of 222,890, the 2021-22 membership cycle marks the highest membership total in the organization’s 100-year history.

“To achieve a record-setting membership year while facing the challenges of the pandemic is a testament to the entire figure skating community,” U.S. Figure Skating President Sam Auxier said. “I am confident that our athletes, clubs, coaches and officials will continue to push the sport and our organization to new heights.”

With 222,890 members for the 2021-22 membership cycle (July 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022), the national governing body broke its previous record of 203,023 (2018-19 season). Total membership includes 167,725 Learn to Skate USA members, 54,720 full members and 445 Friends of Figure Skating.

Learn to Skate USA, powered by Toyota, experienced the highest enrollment in the program’s history in 2021-22. The program welcomed 26 new skating programs. Of note, 169 programs in the United States have more than 300 members. Suburban Skating School houses Learn to Skate USA’s largest program with over 4,000 members while The Kraken Skating Academy is the largest program to join Learn to Skate USA this season. Learn to Skate USA, an enhanced iteration of U.S. Figure Skating’s Basic Skills Program, is the only beginning skating program in the country endorsed by U.S. Figure Skating, USA Hockey and US Speedskating, with support from Special Olympics and the Professional Skaters Association (PSA).
