Schedule

The Technical Panel Committee of U.S. Figure Skating will be hosting a Technical Panel Continuing Education School in singles, pairs and ice dancing for technical specialists, technical controllers and data operators in those disciplines. The school will be held in conjunction with the 2014 U.S. International Figure Skating Classic in Salt Lake City, Utah, Sept. 12-14.

In addition to offering continuing education, testing will be offered for those who already hold a nonqualifying or regional appointment who are approved to test for promotion to the regional or sectional level. We are not able to offer testing for national appointments at this school, nor are we able to offer testing for initial certification.

Who can attend

The school is open to technical controllers, technical specialists and data operators already holding a technical panel appointment in singles, pairs and/or ice dance.  Applicants will be notified of acceptance following the deadline, and after all applications have been evaluated. Space is limited, and acceptance is not guaranteed.

Fees/Costs

Data Operators and Technical Specialists

  • $150 for non-U.S. Figure Skating members
  • $125 for U.S. Figure Skating members seeking an appointment/promotion or recertification
  • $100 for U.S. Figure Skating members already holding an appointment who would like to practice but don't want to test for advancement

Technical Controllers

  • $75 for non-U.S. Figure Skating members
  • $50 for U.S. Figure Skating members seeking an appointment/promotion or recertification
  • $25 for U.S. Figure Skating members already holding an appointment who would like to practice but don't want to test for advancement

Fees include:

  • Right to attend all the meetings in the respective discipline (singles, pairs or ice dance)*
  • Access to all competition events (although meetings will conflict with some)
  • Two days of intensive IJS training, including rotations through IJS equipment in the arena

*Technical controllers and specialists who would like to attend in 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 in more than one, you will not be able to attend all sessions for each discipline. Testing for advancement is allowed in only one discipline and category per attendee.

Expenses including travel, hotel and meals are the responsibility of each attendee. However, reservations at the Marriott will be handled through U.S. Figure Skating, so please don't contact the hotel directly. More information regarding reservations will be provided with the official acceptances to the school.
