    Yes, it's up against Worlds, but please check it out if you can. Event website is here:
    http://www.skatecanada.ca/en-us/eve...ns/2014scadultfigureskatingchampionships.aspx

    There is PPV live streaming through the Skate Canada website - it's the last event of the year in the "live streaming season ticket" package. However, judging by last year, I think the videos of the performances will be posted on the SC website after the events are over.

    Thank you for the link -and good luck in your event :).

    If you or someone else knows, could you please explain what are the introductory (pre-bronze?), pre-introductory (no test?) and competitive levels? We don't really have those in the US

    In interpretive, introductory is the first level of testing, and then there's bronze, silver and gold. So pre-introductory is for skaters who haven't passed the introductory interpretive test.

    In freeskate, the introductory category is being tried at nationals for the first time this year. It is for skaters without any freeskate tests. The bronze category is for skaters who haven't passed all of the Junior Bronze freeskate test, or with lower qualifications than that (i.e. passed Preliminary freeskate test, or hasn't passed any freeskate tests). The introductory category was intended to accommodate skaters who felt their skills weren't competitive enough for the Bronze category, but introductory has so many elements *and* a shorter program time that most people I know who could be in introductory decided to stay in Bronze (where they have an extra minute to do the same number of elements).

    The competitive freeskate categories are for skaters who passed senior silver freeskate and at least the pre-novice competitive test (it doesn't matter when they took it). If they passed senior silver freeskate but a lower competitive test, or no competitive test, they compete in masters.
