Figure Skating Test Levels

Freestyle 1-10


All freestyle students should sign up for this class; levels will be determined on the first day of class, then the group will break down according to ability:
  • Half-rotation jumps and basic spins
  • Triple jumps and flying spins
  • Must pass the Delta level

Advanced Turns & Edges


Focus of the class is on edge quality:
  • Basic and advanced edgework
  • Footwork patterns including ISI dance step sequences
  • Must have passed Gamma level

Performance Essentials


For skaters looking to experience the artistic side of figure skating:
  • Competition and performance based course
  • Introduction to recreational figure skating competition

Open Freestyle Bronze-Platinum


This addition to the testing program opens up many more opportunities for skaters at all Freestyle levels:
  • Adult skaters who might not be strong enough on a required maneuver in the traditional Freestyle 1-10 test levels but still want to advance and compete
  • Current ISI skaters who might be stuck between levels but still want to advance while performing new maneuvers
  • USFS skaters who wish to compete in local, district or national ISI events

Competitions, Shows & Exhibitions


These events are so much fun that many of our skaters return year after year to participate, meet new friends and improve their skills! Any skater who can pass any level of ISI test is eligible and encouraged to participate in a local, district and/or ISI national competition event.

All ISI competition events encourage "participation, not elimination." Every skater in every event receives a medal or award, and all skaters receive team points to help their rink team's overall score.
