Figure skating progress is measured by the USFS testing program. Skaters test to advance to a higher level. There are tests for Moves-in-the-Field, Freeskate, Ice Dancing and Pairs Skating. A skater must pass their Moves-in-the-Field test at each level before progressing onto their Freeskate test. The test levels are as follows: Pre-Preliminary, Preliminary, Pre-Juvenile, Juvenile, Intermediate, Novice, Junior and Senior.
Due to ice availability, and judges’ schedules, test sessions are usually held during the day at Eagan. A skater who would like to take a test must complete an online test application on the left of the page, be a member “in good standing” with their home club and have the permission of their coach and parent.
The test application must be submitted and test fee paid by 14 days prior to the test date.
A $25 late fee will be charged for applications submitted after that date.
Test fees are used to cover USFS and TCFSA fees, ice costs, hospitality and mileage for the judges.
USFS rules state that any skater wishing to retry a failed test must wait at least 27 days between test dates.
Eagan Ice Crystal Figure Skating Club does not pay for pins for testers that pass a USFS test at a club other than Eagan.
