IJS Protocol for Test Credit

In accordance with USFS Rules 4100 and 4200-4202, athletes may receive credit for certain tests by meeting minimum scores at a competition held under the International Judge System (IJS). The athlete must “skate-up” to the event for which they are seeking test credit, in addition to having already passed any prerequisites prior to the competition event.

Beginning November 1, 2023, skaters have 14 days from the time they achieved the requirements at a competition to submit their documents for test credit.
