UFSF Test Session

At the Watertown Figure Skate Club, a skater’s progress is measured by a series of official tests which are governed by United States Figure Skating (USFS). The WFSC conducts test sessions throughout the year, offering Moves in the Field, Freestyle, Solo Free Dance, and Partner Ice Dance evaluations.

The tests establish levels of skating in each discipline for competitive purposes. All sanctioned competitions group skaters according to their passed test level. This allows skaters of similar abilities to compete against each other. These abilities are proven by passing the official USFS tests, taken in front of a panel of judges at designated test sessions.

Many skaters participate in testing and competitive skating, both a challenging and an enjoyable aspect of the sport.

The test sessions hosted by WFSC allow a skater to test their skating achievements in a positive and friendly atmosphere. Our tests are closed to spectators, which means only coaches and skaters are allowed in the rink area during the session.
