In-person Testing

Testing in figure skating offers skaters a way to evaluate their progress, set goals, and track their development, providing a foundation for competition and advancing through levels. MFSCH hosts tests for ice dance, free skating, and skating skills three to four times a year for all levels. Test sessions are open to both club members and non-members.

There are currently no scheduled test sessions.

Test Day

DEI RESOURCE SPOTLIGHT

The Skating Accommodation Memorandum (S.A.M.)

U.S. Figure Skating's Adaptive Skating Committee created the Skating Accommodation Memorandum to foster equitable skating standards for skaters with disabilities, develop increased opportunities for skaters with disabilities to continue their skating growth and support reasonable accommodations to do so. A skater with a documented disability may request exemption from or modification of certain technical rules on the basis that such rule penalizes them in the marking of the assessment and that such rule is peripheral to the skating skill to be demonstrated for testing and 6.0 non-qualifying competitions.
