    AS Sk8er1964 mentioned, in order to compete at Adult Nationals in freestyle events, you must have passed the Adult Bronze freestyle test by the entry deadline (beginning of February). At the Adult Sectionals competitions, they also have a Pre-Bronze competition, which only requires that you pass your Pre-Bronze freestyle test before the entry deadline (also the beginning of February). But here's another thing to check out: The Adult Sectionals often--but not always--have a "No Test" freestyle event as well, which would allow you to enter without passing any further tests.

    I'll be talking over all this with my coach on Friday morning.
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    At Adult Sectionals, the non-Championship events are officially "non-qualifying" events, so you can skate up a level if you haven't passed that level's test yet. You could skate Pre-Bronze as a no-test or Bronze even if Pre-Bronze is your highest FS test.

    I have never found that to be true, at least not at Pacific Coast Adult Sectionals. Unlike local club competitions, you must have passed the qualifying test for the event you are entering.

    I don't believe that has been the case at Easterns, at least not last year. In fact, I remember registering for an event and after I filled out my profile to register with Entryeeze, and it took me to the page to sign up for events, I was offered both Bronze and Silver levels (I'm Bronze FS). And I can think of several instances where someone skated up - not in the Champ events, obviously.

    You can definitely skate up a level for the non-qualifying event (as in most non-qualifying competitions).

    "The requirements shown accommodate skaters wishing to skate up one level."

    Wow, you're right! That didn't used to be the case.
