So... back to the old format!!  I like having the test book separate - the whole "Rules of Sport" part is so cumbersome to carry around to test sessions and stuff.

Whatever - thanks for posting!

ISU explanations are sometimes better than USFSA explanations. Most of us aren't good enough to compete internationally - but since ISU regulations regarding skating largely trump national club regulations in International competitions, national clubs like USFSA often adapt most of their standards, but with less explanation and much poorer documentation.

I think the ISU rulebook equivalent is visible by clicking on the "Extranet" tab at

  http://www.isu.org

However - now you have to login.

So, to the extent that ISU rules affect USFSA and other national skating org rules, perhaps you have to become an ISU member to see them in full?

But some of the rules are visible from the "About ISU" tab, e.g.:

  http://www.isu.org/en/about-isu/isu-statues-constitution-and-regulations

Of course, like USFSA, the rules are frequently updated through technical rules changes. I'm not sure where those are posted.

And the ISU sells some things:

US Figure Skating Basic Skills Evaluation Sheets:

(I use these for my private students who don't take group LTS lessons so I keep them in my coaching materials.)

You?


Quietly?  Me?  Never!

I use them for lesson planning and ad-hoc progress reviews.  I also use them for group lessons (gasp) when the rink-provided well runs dry and there are students who don't have the prized sheets to take home from the last class of the session.  (Although, badges always trump paper.)
