IMPORTANT CFSC TEST SESSION INFORMATION
1. The test fees are non-refundable and not returned if tests are not taken, including contingent tests. In the case of illness or injury, you need to provide a doctor’s note and we will forward the test fee to the next test session. Requests to withdrawal or switch to the following test session without paying the fees again will be considered one time only if the request is received at least 2 weeks prior to the test date.
2. Full and associate members of Columbia Figure Skating Club receive priority for test sessions, however please be aware that they are not guaranteed to be tested depending upon availability of qualified judges and ice time. All others (including CFSC member who do not register on time) are first come, first served. Late registrations will be accepted if space allows and at the discretion of the test chair.
3. All skaters/ or parents must download the CFSC “LIABILITY WAIVER & INFORMATION ACKNOWLEDGMENT” form and return the signed form to the test chair before taking test.
4. CFSC and the Columbia Ice Rink are hosting test sessions under new guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic. You will receive the updated CFSC COVID-19 Protocol before your test date.
5. The test schedule will be created by the CFSC test team one week before the test date and emailed to all parents/skaters and coaches at the email address provided on the registration.
6. When you register for a test, you are committing to test at any time during the session. After the test schedule is posted, no time changes will be permitted. Any personal requests for specific times should be submitted to the test Chair at least 2 weeks before the test date; but please be aware that we CAN NOT guaranteed a specific time because it is always difficult and complex to make the schedule around judging availability, constraints of ice time and other resources. Thank you for your understanding and support.
7. On the test day, please arrive at the rink for your test at least 45 min prior to your scheduled warmup time. If you are unable to attend the test session on the testing day, please notify the test chair as soon as possible.
8. Our ability to offer dance tests is dependent upon availability of qualified judges. Please contact the test chair to determine if dance tests can be accommodated. On the test day, skaters or the skaters’ coach will need to bring their own music for the tests because CFSC does not provide dance test music.
Instruction for obtaining Letter of Permission
To test outside of the home club, you need to download the CFSC Permission Letter and have the test chair sign the form for each test that you take. It is skater’s responsibility to obtain and provide the Permission Letter to the test chair away from the home club. If you are not a CFSC member, you must provide a Permission Letter from your home club in order to test at CFSC.
IJS Protocol for Test Credit
“For some tests, skaters have the ability to use IJS protocols results from competitions to record as an official test record. Skaters are required to submit the necessary forms to the test chair of their club and follow the procedures put forth by the club for submission and payment. The test chair will enter the test for the skater’s official record.” -- USFSA
