Competition Test Credit

Effective November 1, 2017, the U.S. Figure Skating rules allow athletes to receive test credit for meeting minimum scores at any U.S. Figure Skating sanctioned non-qualifying competition held under the International Judge System (IJS). The candidate must “skate-up” to the event they are seeking test credit for, in addition to having already passed any prerequisites prior to the competition event.

Events eligible:
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
Click on the links above to see the required minimum scores for each level and event.

YOU ACHIEVED THE MINIMUM SCORES FOR RECEIVING TEST CREDIT FOR A COMPETITION EVENT YOU “SKATED UP” IN. WHAT DO YOU DO?

STEP 1: While you are at the competition, collect copies of the documents below. It is also recommended that you take pictures of them for safe keeping. Ask the competition for a “Test Credit Packet” which includes:

  1. Overall copy of the appropriate event segment results signed by the Event Referee and Technical Controller.
  2. Your individual detailed protocol as well as a list of athletes in the event meeting the minimum requirements for that level.
  3. Your Test Credit Skater Report, generated by the accountant. This has your name, your scores and verifies you achieved a passing result.

STEP 2: Login to our Test Registration System at http://testing.SanDiegoFSC.org

STEP 3: Under “Test Sessions” tab select the “Competition Test Credit” that is active.

STEP 4: Choose file AND then select upload file for each of: “Overall Event Results”, “Individual Protocol”, and “Test Credit Skater Report”.

The Test Chair will process the application and submit information to U.S. Figure Skating for credit.
