The U.S. Dance Final will be held concurrently with the Eastern Sectional Singles Final in Hyannis, Massachusetts. The U.S. Pairs Final will be held concurrently with the Midwestern Sectional Singles Final in Allen, Texas. Both competitions run November 13-16.

This is a change in the qualifying pipeline for US Figure Skating competitions from recent years. US Figure Skating explains the 2020 qualify structure here. For junior and senior-level skaters, this weekend's competitions are a qualifier for the 2020 US Figure Skating Championships, January 20-26, 2020, in Greensboro, North Carolina. For juvenile, intermediate and novice-level skaters, this weekend's competitions are the last USFS competition events for the season, except for those novice-level skaters who, based upon their performance this weekend, are invited to "skate up" as junior competitors in the 2020 US Figure Skating Championships.
