Did you know?!
For skaters at the no-test level and above, the well-balanced program requirements and rules changes for each year are usually implemented on July 1 of each year but are announced in the spring pending approval at the May Governing Council. Skaters and their coaches should always be looking for new rules updates on the US Figure Skating website.
