New way to play music when ice monitoring

Look for this information and instructions on how to access the ipad on the website under Links and Forms.
Test session updates
Virtual testing is approved as a permanent option for US Figure Skating clubs and members. The permanent requirements will closely follow the pilot program that has been in place since Jan. 1.
There have been changes made to the waiting period for tests marked “Retry.” Moves in the field, pre-juvenile and below free skate tests, and for pattern dance tests, the waiting period is reduced to 14 days, beginning with the 2021-22 season. For standard free skate tests Juvenile and above, the waiting period is reduced to one day, beginning with the 2021-22 season.
There are other changes but they apply to the adult levels, etc.
For a full review of all changes, see the US Figure Skating Rule Book.
