Obtaining Test Credit by Competing

Background

In accordance with Rules TR 3.00, 4.01 and 4.02, skaters may now receive US Figure Skating test credit by meeting certain minimum PCS, TES and TSS scores at any U.S. competition held under the International Judging System (IJS). The athlete must “skate-up” and compete in the event for which they are seeking test credit, in addition to having already passed any prerequisites prior to the competition event.

For example, if an individual junior-level freestyle skater seeks senior-level freestyle test credit via IJS protocol, he or she must enter an IJS competition as a senior-level skater and meet the minimum PCS, TES and TSS requirements for senior-level test credit during that competition. Entering a junior-level event will not suffice in this example, regardless of score.

Eligible events:

  • Singles Free Skate: Juvenile, Intermediate, Novice, Junior, Senior and Adult Gold
  • Pairs Free Skate: Juvenile, Intermediate, Novice, Junior and Senior
  • Free Dance: Juvenile, Intermediate, Novice, Junior and Senior

Submission Date Requirements Per Rule 4606 Test results must be reported and paid for through the Members Only site within 14 days of the date of the tests or the date the skater submits an IJS protocol for test credit (see rule 4604 (B)). Results reported after the 14-day period will incur a late fee per rule 4704.
