2018 U.S. Championships Silver Medalist, #BossMiner
Ross Miner is the 2018 U.S. National Silver Medalist. He is also a three-time Grand Prix Medalist, a Junior Grand Prix Final Bronze Medalist and a National Junior Champion. In addition, he has proudly represented The Skating Club of Boston for more than fifteen years, and this marks his fifteenth appearance in Ice Chips.
Ross was born in Vermont and first put on skates at an outdoor rink near his house. His preschool teacher was also a skating coach, and she helped him join a Basic Skills program before he was technically old enough to join. Like many male figure skaters, he first played hockey but was intrigued by the cool tricks that figure skating had to offer. By age six, he was figure skating as much as playing hockey.
In 2001, Ross moved to Boston to train with Mark Mitchell and Peter Johansson at The Skating Club of Boston. With the help and support of his parents he has won gold at the U.S. Championships at the Junior and Intermediate levels, and four U.S. National Championships Senior medals, including two silver medals.
Even when not skating, Ross can still be found at the rink, coaching the next generation of skaters and passing on his love for the sport. Outside the rink, his hobbies include golf, travel, and tennis.
