All schools will offer classroom sessions as well as pencil and paper calling during live junior events. In addition to offering continuing education, testing will be offered for those who already hold a nonqualifying or regional appointment in singles, pairs, ice dance, or data who are approved to test for promotion. We are not able to offer testing for national appointments at this school, nor are we able to offer testing for initial certification in any discipline. Please note that our ability to hold each school is dependent on having a sufficient number of approved applicants.

Please note that we recommend holding off on booking flights until you are officially accepted to the school. If you choose to book your flights earlier, U.S. Figure Skating will not be responsible for any change fees you may incur if you are not accepted.

The school is open to technical controllers, technical specialists and data operators already holding a technical panel appointment in singles, pairs and/or ice dance. Applicants will be notified of acceptance following the deadline, and after all applications have been evaluated. Space is limited, and acceptance is not guaranteed.
