We are planning USFS Test Sessions for Tuesday, September 1 and Thu., Oct. 22. In order to protect the health and safety of our judges, skaters, coaches and staff, WSC has implemented the following mandatory safety measures during our test sessions:

  1. All test session registrations MUST BE DONE ONLINE ONLY. We cannot accept paper money, checks or forms at the rink.
  2. If you feel sick, stay home. We will offer refunds for any skaters who need to cancel their test due to illness.
  3. Only skaters are permitted inside the rink.  No parents or spectators are permitted inside the rink before the test begins, during practice or testing time.
  4. All skaters must arrive dressed in their testing apparel as there will be no available locker rooms. Only the bathroom will be available for skaters.
  5. Skaters must have temperature checked upon entering the building, use hand sanitizer and sign a waiver when they register online for their test before they will be permitted to enter the rink. 
  6. Skaters must wear a mask outside and inside the building at all times until they are on the ice.
  7. Skaters must keep 6 feet of distance when not on the ice at all times. Skaters awaiting their test may sit/stand spread out along the outside of the rink only on the locker room side of the rink.
  8. The snack bar will be locked. The upstairs is ONLY for judges and test staff.  No coaches, skaters or parents are permitted upstairs.
  9. Skaters must exit the rink within 5 minutes of receiving their test results.

WSC USFS Test Registration

Test Information:

  • All testers must be current members of US Figure Skating in order to be scheduled to test at WSC. Skater’s coach must be in full compliance with US Figure Skating and provide current instructor insurance document to WSC office.
  • Tests are eligible to be scheduled once the completed and signed (by coach) application and proper payment, including any potential non-club or late fees have been received by the office.  Tests are then considered in the order that those completed forms and payments were received.
  • All test forms must include the skater’s current USFS number, the coach’s signature and the skater’s and coach’s email address.  All correspondence regarding the test session and schedule will occur via email.
  • Incomplete applications or applications submitted without the proper payment will not be scheduled until the corrected application and payment are both submitted.
  • Tests will continue to be accepted for scheduling until the available amount of ice time for that test date has been exhausted.  If this happens, and if the rink is able to acquire both ice time and relevant judges, an additional test session, called an overflow test session, may be added at the discretion of the rink and the test chair.
  • Test Fees (including non-club member and late fees) are not refundable if the applicant withdraws within ten days of the test session or does not show for a test with the exception of skaters who are feeling ill the day before or day of a test.  In that case, a full refund will be issued.
  • Please note that U.S. Figure Skating requires that skaters retrying a test wait at least 27 days following the date of the original test.
  • All WSC Club Members must pay the annual hospitality fee with their first test submission of a new Club Season.
  • Skaters who are not home club members of Wissahickon Skating Club need to submit a “Permission to Test” letter from their home club with test application.
  • All Applicants and coaches should arrive 45 mins prior to the skater’s warm-up time and be prepared to test up to 40 mins before their scheduled time (with the exception of the first three skaters of the test session who may arrive 30 minutes prior to their warm-up time).  If the Test Session runs early and the Applicant is not prepared to test, the Applicant forfeits all fees for that test.
