Eastern Sectional Figure Skating Championships

The Eastern Sectional Figure Skating Championships is an annual figure skating competition organized by U.S. Figure Skating which has been held since 1938.

Skaters compete in three levels: Senior, Junior, and Novice. Medals are awarded in four disciplines: Ladies singles, Men's singles, Pairs, and Ice dance. Medals are given out in four colors: gold (first), silver (second), bronze (third), and pewter (fourth). Skaters who place in the top four at the Eastern Sectional advance to the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

The 2008 Eastern Sectionals were held from November 14-November 17, 2007 in Raleigh, North Carolina, and the 2009 Sectionals are being held in Boston, Massachusetts

The notable names to have competed at Easterns over the years include Olympic gold medalists Dick Button, Tenley Albright, Carol Heiss, Dorothy Hamill, and Scott Hamilton.
