Virtual Testing Timeline

  • Second Monday (or sooner) – skaters and coaches receive link to Google Drive Folder
  • Third Thursday– Video and Form submission deadline
  • Fourth Thursday (or sooner) – Skaters and Coaches receive test results

Virtual Test Submission Guidelines

  • Record in landscape orientation at the highest resolution possible (720p minimum)
  • There should be no more than 8 skaters on the ice during the test
  • Record a date and time stamp and an introduction of the skater and test at the beginning of video
    • It is best to have the phone sitting on the boards and get a long close-up shot of the screen, rather than have the skater hold the phone. If the skater is far away or the text on the phone is low contrast, it can be very hard to read.
  • Videos must be taken no earlier than 14 days before the video submission deadline
  • The video must be continuous and unedited.
  • Record from near the red line (don’t follow your skater around the ice)
  • Keep the skater filling most of the frame, and in view from head to toe.
  • For more information: USFS Virtual Testing Video Requirements (Updated 12/1/2022)
  • Please name all uploaded files using the format: FirstName_LastName_TestLevel_NameOfForm (Example: Suzy_Skater_IntermediateMIF_Affidavit)
  • Freestyle & Free Dance Tests need to submit Planned Program Content in addition to the Affidavit and Release Form

We try our best to accommodate all test applications, but please note per the Testing Policy, test applications ARE NOT CONFIRMED until the release and confirmation of the schedule. Registration for a test date is not guaranteed until judges, test priority and other factors have been considered. 

SCSF is currently planning additional Test Sessions. Registrations will open once we have a complete panel of judges confirmed. 


IJS Protocol Submission

Skaters may receive credit for certain test levels by meeting minimum score requirements at a competition held under IJS. The skater must “skate up” to the next level and have passed any pre-requisite (ie skating skills) tests prior to the competition event.

Eligible disciplines and levels:

Singles free skate*: Juvenile, Intermediate, Novice, Junior, Senior, Adult Silver, Adult Gold, Adult Intermediate, Adult Novice, Adult Junior, Adult Senior
Pairs free skate: Juvenile, Intermediate, Novice, Junior, Senior
Partnered free dance: Juvenile, Intermediate, Novice, Junior, Senior
Solo free dance: Juvenile, Intermediate, Novice, Junior, Senior

*Both Excel and well-balanced free skate events are eligible for credit. Skaters can use an Open Juvenile score for credit if the event is held under IJS.

Here is a link to this season’s minimum technical scores.

Check the competition’s announcement for IJS protocol test credit packet procedures. In many cases, you must register ahead of time to receive the packet from the accountant. The packet should include:

  1. A copy of the overall event results that lists all of the skaters in addition to the names and signatures of the technical controller and event referee.
  2. Your individual protocol.
  3. Your Test Credit Skater Report, which is generated by the accountant.

You will also need to submit a written statement from your coach verifying that the packet documents are true and valid. They can write their own statement or fill out this form.

Once you have all of these documents, register for the IJS protocol test at the appropriate level, then email the documents to the test chair.
