WHO CAN ATTEND

Each school is open to technical controllers and technical specialists already holding an appointment in the discipline in which they want to participate. Those who do not hold any appointments in the discipline in which they want to participate may still apply to attend the school but will only be accepted if space permits. If you are not accepted, you will receive a full refund.

Those who attend will receive credit for one nonqualifying competition to be considered toward future advancement. NO APPOINTMENTS OR PROMOTIONS ARE OFFERED DURING THIS SCHOOL. This school provides continuing education and activity credits ONLY.

Space is limited. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, provided that applicants meet the stated requirements.

FEES/COSTS

There is a $75 fee to attend to cover administrative costs.

Fees include:

  • Right to attend all the meetings in the respective discipline (singles, pairs or ice dancing)*
  • Day passes for Jan. 21-23**

*Those who would like to attend more than one discipline may do so without having to pay a second fee; however, the schedules for the disciplines will overlap, so if you attend more than one, you will not be able to attend all sessions for each school.

**If you would like to attend any events on any other days, you will need to purchase tickets. For more information regarding the U.S. Championships, please visit http://www.2013uschampionships.com/.

Note: If you are a national official purchasing non-working officials tickets, unfortunately, we will NOT be able to offer you a discount for the school. Although attending the school gives you access to watch some events, the cost of the events are not actually factored into the fee to attend the school. Instead, the $75 fee is used to offset the cost of moderator and A/V expenses.
