Robert Unger Competition

MAY 3-5, 2024

Started in 1970, the annual Robert Unger ISI Skating Competition (formerly known as the Mississippi Valley District Invitational Team Competition -- MVDC) is the oldest continuously running figure skating competition endorsed by the Ice Sports Industry (ISI). In 1977, this competition became the first international ISI skating competition.

A Little History:

The history of recreational competition continues to build as each new generation participates in innovations of the ISI program. The Robert Unger philosophy of "something for everyone" is certainly shared by ISI. New ISI events such as Creative Figures and Free Dance have been developed and proven at this competition. Mr. Unger recalled those early days:

"The first competition had practically no rules except good sportsmanship, ethics, and the attitude that this is not the last day of your life!"

Events include:

Tots, Special Skater, Pre-Alpha through Delta, Freestyle, Open Freestyle, Open Pairs, Footwork, Stroking, Figures, Dance, Pairs, Team Compulsories, Solo Compulsories, Artistic Skating, Production, Jump & Spin, Ensemble, Synchronized Events, Interpretive Spotlight, Spotlight, (Choose one: Light Entertainment, Dramatic, or Character), Family Spotlight, Couples Spotlight.

We will use our stage lighting and follow spots for all spotlight events, as well as a curtain!
