“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.” –USFSA
Some tests are either recommended or required for participation on certain synchronized skating team levels. For more information about this test structure, requirements and rules, go to the USFSA website’s testing information area or the USFSA’s synchronized skating information.
For information about testing dates/times at various locations, click the individual ice rinks listed below. Always call the rink in advance to confirm test dates and times. Testing fees may vary by testing location and additional fees may apply if testing at locations other than your home club. If testing at a locations other than your “home club,” you may need a release letter from your club’s test chair. Consult with your individual coach to determine whether that coach will attend testing sessions at other rinks.
