Virtual Testing

Skating Club of Phoenix offers monthly virtual testing!  

  • Virtual tests are submitted weekly, results are back quickly!

  • It is recommended that skaters wait until they're ready to submit before registering for a virtual test. 

  • If you register for a virtual test in a month, you MUST provide your video and supporting completed documents within the same month, or your fee will be forfeited. 

  • Use the links below to register for a virtual test session, learn about the video requirements, and to download all required paperwork.

  • Any skater who is not a member of one of the five AZ Interclubs (Coyotes SC of AZ, SC of Phoenix, Desert Ice SC of AZ, Flagstaff FSC, or Copper State SC) is subject to the $35 out-of-club fee, and is required to provide a letter of permission from their home club with their submission.

What is a Judge?

Judges are probably the most well-known type of figure skating official. U.S. Figure Skating appoints judges in three different disciplines: (1) singles/pairs, (2) ice dancing and (3) synchronized skating. There are also two different classifications of judges: (1) test judges (who can judge test sessions and nonqualifying competitions) and (2) competition judges (who can judge nonqualifying and qualifying competitions). 

 

For more information on becoming a judge, judges schools, qualifying competition assignments, trial judge events, judging manuals, appointment guidelines, etc., please go to the Judges page.

What Does a Test Chair Do?

It is not only one of the most important positions in any skating club, it is a function essential to the success of skating in the United States!

Through the test chair's efforts, both skaters and judges advance in the sport - some on the competitive track, some to satisfy personal goals, some in a combination of the two. The test chair is indispensable to this process.

The test chair is the most direct link to U.S. Figure Skating headquarters - often the pipeline of new information about changes to the test structure necessary to skaters and their coaches, but also the administrator of test rules and regulations. It is a large responsibility.

The test chair's job is to plan, organize and run test sessions. They are required to report on these sessions and to maintain files on skaters and judges. To do so, they will frequently need to refer to the U.S. Figure Skating rulebook, tests book and directory.

Kinds of Tests

There are several classes of tests in the U.S. Figure Skating structure:

1. Moves in the field (standard track and adult)
2. Free skate (or free skating) (standard track and adult)
3. Pairs (standard track and adult)
4. Compulsory Dance (standard track, solo, adult and masters)
5. Free dance (standard track and masters)


The order in which tests are taken is important. According to TR 2.02 in the rulebook: A candidate shall not be eligible to take a higher-level test until all of the preceding tests in the same category have been passed or completed except as otherwise specified in these rules.

Please refer to the U.S. Figure Skating Rulebook to gain a better understanding of all the test rules and expectations before testing. Further description of the elements of each test is available in the rulebook.
