U.S. Figure Skating has updated its testing names and structure. Learn more:
Figure Skating Levels
While competitive skaters are required to participate in the U.S. Figure Skating test structure in order to compete, all skaters may opt to take tests as a means of continually challenging themselves and their skating abilities. Tests are available in skating skills, singles, pairs and ice dance, and a separate track is available for adults age 21 and older. As a skater advances, the tests become more difficult, so each test passed is a definite cause for celebration.
How To Test
Skaters may test one of two ways:
- Scheduled test sessions hosted by a figure skating club
- Submit a competition protocol from a sanctioned U.S. Figure Skating competition. This option is available for free skate, pairs and free dance tests at the juvenile-senior levels and select adult levels.
Adults are able to test in the adult testing structure.
The qualifications and standards for all tests are specified in the current version of the U.S. Figure Skating Rulebook.
U.S. Figure Skating Gold Medalists
Passing the final test earns a skater the designation of U.S. Figure Skating Gold Medalist. Skaters can earn multiple gold designations over the course of their skating careers.
