A figure skater’s progress is measured by a series of tests which are governed by two skating associations, United States Figure Skating Association (USFS) and Ice Skating Institute (ISI). BCLFSC conducts test sessions throughout the year, offering Moves in the Field and Freestyle evaluations.
These tests establish skating levels in each discipline for competitive purposes. Skaters are grouped according to their test level in sanctioned competitions, allowing skaters of similar abilities to compete against one other. Skaters demonstrate their skating skills at these designated test sessions in front of qualified official USFS judges.
