Testing is a very important part of a skater’s development as it measures their progress and allows them to see the results of their hard work. Each child will progress at his/her own. When your coach feels that the skater is ready to test, they will notify the skater/parent of the upcoming test days.
Test Days - TBD
The Test Chair organizes the test days, makes arrangements for the evaluators, and collects the test list from the coaches. A final test schedule is then done and share with the skaters by email and/or posting on bulletin board outside our office. The schedule may include a time which may require your child to miss school or an after school activity.
- Test Days are special days set aside for skaters to take tests at the Senior Bronze (STAR 6) and above level.
- The Upper Canada Skating Club typically offers 3 Test Days during the season (January, March & May).
- There are separate tests for each of free skate (Elements and Program), dance, skating skills, and interpretive skating.
- Coaches have to submit a tentative test list up to 4 weeks in advance, and final decisions are due 2 weeks before the test.
After this point, a test that is not complete is considered an automatic "RETRY" and you will be charged the fee for the test.
PLEASE LET YOUR COACH KNOW IF YOU WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE ON THAT DATE. There may be opportunities to attend test days at other local area clubs.
