A figure skater's progress is measured by a series of tests which are governed by two skating associations, United States Figure Skating (USFS) and Ice Skating Institute (ISI). SCFSC conducts test sessions throughout the year, offering Moves in the Field, Freestyle, and Ice Dance evaluations.
The tests establish levels of skating in each discipline for competitive purposes. All sanctioned competitions group skaters according to their passed test level. This allows skaters of similar abilities to compete against each other. These abilities are proven by passing the official USFS or ISI tests, taken in front of judges at designated test sessions.
Many skaters participate in testing and competitive skating, both a challenging and an enjoyable aspect of the sport.
The test sessions hosted by SCFSC allow a skater to test their skating achievements in a positive and friendly atmosphere.
SCFSC typically offers 3- 4 test session each year. All test sessions are held at the Municipal Athletic Complex (MAC) in St. Cloud. We have testing scheduled for the following dates, open to both member and non members of SCFSC.
A skater must be in good standing with their club in order to test. To test with SCFSC, please complete the below Permission to Test form and return prior to testing with SCFSC.
