The Marquette Figure Skating Club (MFSC) offers U.S. Figure Skating proficiency testing for all levels during the summer (August – at the conclusion of the Summer Skate Program) and winter (February – in conjunction with The Ron Carlson Marquette International Open Competition). Low level testing is held periodically for club session skaters pending partner and judge availability. Non-MFSC member applications will be accepted on the low level test sessions if time permits.
ELIGIBILITY TO TEST:
The skater must be a current member of U.S. Figure Skating, be a current member in good standing of their home club, provide a letter or email of permission to test from their home club, pay the appropriate fees (including dance lesson fees if applicable), and have the recommendation of their coach as indicated by the coach signature on the application to test form.
- Lesson Fees – Fee charged by the partner for a lesson or partner practice lesson. (not included on test form – skater will be charged)
- Test Fees – The cost of a particular test. (included on test form)
Note: Testing fees are based on ice costs, partner and judges’ expenses, which include travel, lodging, and meals. U.S. Figure Skating judges are volunteers and are not paid a fee or stipend.
Applications must include the coach(es) who will be coaching and/or partnering.
All USFS events, including testing, require that a coach be registered with USFS. The USFS website lists all coaches who are registered and will be used to confirm coach registration. Names appear on the list only when all USFS registration requirements have been met. Please see the USFS website (usfigureskating.org) or contact USFS at (719)635-5200 for further information regarding coach registration.
APPLICATION TO TEST FORMS:
Note: Due dates will be strictly adhered to.
August and February test applications will be posted on our club website for non-MFSC members. MFSC members will receive test applications from their primary coach. Test application forms are also available from the MFSC Test Chair.
The August and February full test session dates will be posted, as determined, in the calendar section of our website. The low level sessions will be posted as they are scheduled.
