USFSA Adult Skating Reference Links
« on: September 17, 2010, 01:29:30 PM »
Below are some links to info about the USFSA adult skating and competition structure. Everyone is welcome to add to the list.

U.S. Adult Skating Competitive Events - (one minor error - this chart is from 2008, so I have no idea why it lists Young Adult and Adult Introductory as comp levels; I believe the YA levels were abolished when the age requirement was lowered to 21 in 2005)

Adult well-balanced program (WBP) requirements

The Waltz 8 video has always annoyed me in the way it starts in the middle without showing the strike.
Yes I'm in with the 90's. I have a skating blog. http://icedoesntcare.blogspot.com/

Technically you can do introductory steps on this one, so I can see why the video doesn't start with a strike (yes, I was surprised too when my coach mentioned this.. none of the other "figures" moves allow them).

I was surprised about the entry steps being allowed on a Waltz 8.  I don't teach them that way.
