The fourth annual Peggy Fleming Trophy (PFT) is a collaboration with the Broadmoor Skating Club with the support of U.S. Figure Skating. 

The focus of the event is the skater’s ability to artistically express and present a complete composition while demonstrating superb technical skills. The music, creativity and overall performance qualities are the emphasis of the competition, and all skating elements are assessed from an artistic point of view. 

There are 19 entries. Senior level Men and Ladies will compete together and against each other for the Trophy. Each skater will record their 3:30 minute +/- 10 sec. performance at their home ice arena and then digitally upload it to a U.S. Figure Skating platform for evaluation by a world-class group of officials.

PFT Program Requirements

There are nine technical elements which have fixed base scoring values. Each element will receive a Grade of Execution (GOE) mark based on the artistic execution of the element in relationship to the program as a whole. 

The Nine Technical Elements:

  • 4 Jump elements (one Axel-type)
  • 3 Spin elements (one Creative Spin)
  • 1 Step Sequence
  • 1 Signature Move

Unique to this event is the “Signature Move” and the “Creative Spin:”

  • Signature Move—A creative move/movement series, or an iconic skating move, jump or spin tailored to your creativity, personal style and strength.
  • Creative Spin—A spin of 6 revolutions or more created with unique positions and design, giving the skater creative identity without limitations of position and features.

Illegal elements as prescribed by the ISU are prohibited. For this event, quad jumps are not allowed.


PFT Prize Money:

While there is no entry fee, there is new prize money for this year’s event.

Continuing their ongoing commitment to the PFT, Greg and Peggy Jenkins donate the prize money to the Broadmoor Skating Club and the Club then distributes it to the winners.

The prize money for a podium finish is:
  1st place: $3000
  2nd place: $2000
  3rd place: $1000

Additionally, non-podium skaters receiving +4 and/or +5 GOEs by a majority of the judges on their “Signature Move” and/or “Creative Spin” will get a $100 award for each of these elements as a special acknowledgement.

The winner of the PFT will have his/her name added to the base of the bronze sculpture commissioned by Peggy and donated to the Broadmoor Skating Club to celebrate the competition.

The 2021 Peggy Fleming Trophy will be a fantastic event showcasing the creativity, artistry, and skating skills of the very talented entrants.
