NEW TEST FORM AND VIDEO SUBMISSION PROCESS!
Do not submit to email address. Forms/videos will not be accepted via any other submission avenue.
VIRTUAL TEST INFORMATION AND REQUIREMENTS:
- All videos and required forms MUST be submitted to the test upload form by the registration deadline.
- Results will be emailed to the skater and coach, and recorded with U.S. Figure Skating within two weeks of the deadline. Please plan accordingly when scheduling other tests.
- If you have registered for a virtual test and do not plan to submit a video, email firstname.lastname@example.org before the test deadline. Refunds will not be given after the deadline for any reason.
TIPS FOR FILMING A VIRTUAL TEST SESSION:
Please review the virtual testing video requirements and rules (rule 4104) before filming and submitting your video. Videos that do not meet the video requirements outlined in the U.S. Figure Skating rulebook will be rejected.
- Videos below 720p will not be accepted.
- Prior to the candidate starting the test, the candidate’s name, home club name and test name must be announced or displayed (see also rule 8223). A date and time stamp must be clearly shown at the beginning of the video by holding up a mobile device in front of the camera that shows the date and time. The date must include both the month and the day (for example, July 1).
- Videos should be filmed in landscape (horizontally), not portrait (vertically).
- The entire test must be performed and filmed in one, continuous video with no pauses in filming. Skaters may pause for up to 10 seconds between MIF patterns.
- Reskating elements/patterns or restarting is not permitted.
- Videos must have been recorded within 14 days of the submission deadline.
- Videos from a competition, exhibition, or ice show may not be submitted to virtual test sessions.
- Keep the skater’s entire body in frame at all times.
- Avoid zooming in and out during the video as it can be distracting for the judges.
- Virtual tests should be recorded with no more than eight other skaters on the ice, and the test candidate should be clearly identifiable. Audio must be recorded during all tests. Skaters will not be penalized if background music or noise is audible during skating skills tests.
- Be sure to watch the video after the skater has finished their test to ensure there were no glitches or problems with the quality before uploading.
- In order to guarantee the integrity of the virtual test environment, candidates must confirm a proctor for their
performance. The proctor must be an impartial person of authority (i.e., test chair, rink management, skating school director, board member or local skating official) but may NOT be a coach/choreographer who has worked with the candidate, a training mate who takes from the same coach or is a personal friend of the candidate, or a parent/guardian of the athlete or any training mates. The videographer may also serve as the proctor if they meet the requirements in (a). Proctors must watch the test performance, verify that the full performance was completed on the date and time indicated in the athlete’s recording as a single continuous recording, and complete the performance affidavit.
- A performance affidavit stating that the video is in its original format and has not been altered in any way must
be signed by the candidate, the candidate’s coach, the videographer, and the test proctor, and must accompany the video submission. If the candidate does not have a coach, the performance affidavit may be submitted without a coach’s signature.
- The video, performance affidavit and applicable payment must be submitted to the test chair hosting the virtual test session.
- The video and supporting documents must be submitted by the deadline set by the test chair.
