Testing

With an understanding of current and anticipated weather conditions, we have looked into rescheduling the January 20th test session.   Unfortunately, due to ice and judge availability, we are unable to reschedule test for another date.


We recognize that the weather may present some challenges.  In an effort to give all the chance to evaluate conditions we will delay the start time.  The test order will remain as posted however will run on a
two hour delay.  The first test will begin at 10am. 

We hope this extra time will make it easier for skaters and their families.  Please be safe and make appropriate decision for your skaters and families safety. 

We will to stick to original schedule and running order, however will do our best to work with skaters so that they can test.  If weather impedes arrival we will do our best to accommodate.  Please be patient with us as we work through this together.  If you run into unexpected issues and need to reach us you can try to reach my cell phone.

The test structure is the backbone of U.S. Figure Skating. Passing skill tests presided over by official judges advances the skater to the next level. Skaters test in moves in the field, free skating, pairs and ice dancing. As a skater advances, the tests become more difficult. The highest achievement in each discipline is passing the senior, also called “gold,” test. When a skater passes a gold test, he or she earns the designation “U.S. Figure Skating gold medalist.”

Becoming a U.S. Figure Skating gold medalist is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication to the sport. In a typical year, approximately 40,000 U.S. Figure Skating test levels are completed by athletes; of those, about 1,300, or 3 percent, are at the gold or senior level.
