The figure skating season for 2020–21 began on July 1, 2020, and will finish on June 30, 2021. Elite skaters participated at the ISU Championship level in the 2021 World Championships this season. All other skaters competed at their national championships.
Figure skating is one of four major sports that are not played during the year but instead in a single season (the others being ice hockey, alpine skiing, and ski jumping). The term "season" can also be used to describe individual competitions or events within the framework of a series/tournament. For example, a figure skater may win several medals at the senior international level by performing well at the World Championships and the Four Continents Championships.
A new season starts with the opening of the calendar year and the beginning of competition dates. The season typically begins with a Grand Prix series that usually lasts about two months. Skaters use these events to build up their ranking which determines how they place at the World Championships and the Olympic Games. In addition to the World Championships and Olympics, other important competitions include the Four Continents Championships, where skaters from all over the world come together to compete; the European Championships; the North American Championships; and the Caribbean Championships.
The World Championships were the only ISU Championship event contested during the 2020–21 season due to the cancellation of the European, Four Continents, and World Junior Championships.

The figure skating season is the time when contests in the sport of figure skating are held. The skating season begins on July 1 of one year and ends on June 30 of the next year, lasting a complete year.
Figure skating is a winter sport because it requires ice skates, a hockey stick, and often a helmet. It is not known exactly how many people participate in figure skating or why some do and others don't. Some people may find the demands of the sport too strenuous to continue for an entire year. In that case, they may choose another sport.
Figure skating is popular among children because it is easy to learn and fun to watch. When children grow up, they may want to continue playing with the help of coaches who can give them advice on how to improve their game. This process will make them more skilled at figure skating which is rewarding even though there are no rewards in traditional sports like baseball or football.
Some people may think that figure skating is dangerous because it is hard to see where you are going in the dark and may want to avoid this sport. In fact, figures skating is very safe when done properly. A figure skater can fall and be injured, but these injuries are usually not serious. Some common examples include sprains, strains, and fractures. These things happen to experienced skaters as well as newbies.
12 months The figure skating season is the time when contests in the sport of figure skating are held.
The season starts with the World Championships and ends with the Winter Olympics. In between these two events, national championships are held at the senior (top) level and junior (under 18) level. These competitions can be any length, but they usually last for at least three days.
At the international level, there are also team events held during the season where countries compete against each other for gold, silver, and bronze medals. These competitions usually last four to six days and are held about every two years.
At the club level, individuals often train throughout the year to improve their skills before competing again at regional or local tournaments.
The off-season is when skaters rest their bodies and focus on other sports such as soccer, hockey, etc. So even though figure skating is held annually, skaters need time away from the sport to keep themselves motivated and healthy.
From March 22–28, 2021, the World Figure Skating Championships were held in Stockholm, Sweden.

The World Synchronized Skating Championships are the year's final ISU Championships. The Olympic Games  Figure skating is contested at the Winter Olympics every four years. The first winter games were held in 1920, and since then the sport has only been absent from the Olympics twice - from 1940 to 1948 and in 1976. It is one of three sports that have never been included on television during the United States Summer Olympics program (along with baseball and softball).
The current season of competitions for figure skaters begins in September after the U.S. Open Series and International Skating Events. The 2014-15 season will end with the 2015 World Championships in Barcelona, Spain.
Figure skating made its debut at the Winter Olympics in 1920. The sport was originally planned to be a single event but this idea was dropped after it became clear that it would be too difficult to stage a single-elimination tournament. Instead, a series of qualifying rounds were held until the maximum number of participants had been determined. From then on, all that remained was for the finalists from these contests to compete in a final round for the gold and silver medals. This format has been retained for every Olympics since then.
In 1952, the men's singles competition was changed from an elimination round to a group phase format.
The 2021 Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships were place at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, from January 11–21, 2021. Medals were given out at the senior and junior levels in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dance. The term "senior" here refers to skaters over 15 years old, while the term "junior" refers to skaters under 15 years old.
The event is being held at a time when the world is trying to come to terms with the effects of COVID-19. As such, it has been decided that this year's championship will be conducted virtually. This means that no one will be allowed to enter the arena except those involved with the competition and some official guests.
This is not the first time that a major international figure skating event has been held virtually. Last year's World Championships took place in Milan with all participants living in different parts of the world meeting online via a virtual platform. The same format was used for the juniors' event this year as well. However, unlike last year when many countries did not have enough qualified athletes to send a team to Milan, several nations have stepped up this year with some countries fielding multiple teams in various events.
Canada was the overwhelming winner at the juniors' level with three gold medals and one bronze. The United States followed close behind with two golds and one silver.
