    virtual test vs traditional test

    Ah, OK, I didn't realize it had to go through a club (is that a change from the original setup?) but I don't think it has to be a specific test session/scheduled date....my club's skaters film/submit when they are ready (our test chair emails me results for our club newsletter and I get them...

    virtual test vs traditional test

    I believe you can submit a virtual test directly to USFS at any time. It doesn't have to be part of a test session. Some clubs may offer a virtual test session where they may take care of some of the admin details, but in my area anyway, skaters who want to do virtual just record and submit the...

    2022-23 ISU Grand Prix Assignments are published

    That is too bad. I was looking forward to seeing N/N at SA. I hope they'll be able to compete at Euros and Worlds.

    Delayed Gratification - The 2022 Baseball Thread

    It's been so long since the Orioles played in (or were in contention for) the postseason that I didn't realize there are now 3 wild card teams along with the division winners. So that means the Orioles are now tied for a playoff spot. :eek: I still think it's a long shot (without a decent...

    U.S. Ice Dance 2022-23 news & updates

    In addition to what has been posted above about Charlie's experience, Tanith has done choreo for both singles skaters and ice dancers, plus also coached in Marina Z's group for a while in the 2012-2014 range. And of course Greg has been coaching since he retired in 2011 and spent 4 years as part...

    U.S. Ice Dance 2022-23 news & updates

    That's probably a case of USFS not giving full direction to whichever employee updates the site or the employee forgot that part. It wouldn't be the first time a USFS web update, or lack thereof, went awry.

    Delayed Gratification - The 2022 Baseball Thread

    Not until the team is sold. Current owner Angelos in his 90s, with dementia, and his wife and sons are feuding with each other. Supposedly, when Angelos dies, they will sell the team, which they claim will only be to someone who will keep the team in Baltimore. We can only hope it will be an...

    Delayed Gratification - The 2022 Baseball Thread

    :wuzrobbed I wasn't expecting the Orioles to make the playoffs this year, even with Mancini, but they're never going to truly "rebuild" and contend if they trade away players once they get good.

    The Dance Hall 10: The Saitama Samba 2022-2023

    Madison likely would be fine at U.S. Nats, as long as she fulfills the coaching compliance reqs...background check, liability insurance, USFS and PSA (coaches org) membership and required online CERs and SafeSport training.

    The Dance Hall 10: The Saitama Samba 2022-2023

    No idea, I'm in the U.S. My guess is they would need to fulfill any SC reqs since that is the policy of USFS....in USFS, every coach has to complete background check and continuing ed courses each year.

    The Dance Hall 10: The Saitama Samba 2022-2023

    I'm guessing work visa issues. The announcement says she will be at the boards tomorrow....the Lake Placid int'l?

    2022 Skate America

    I would assume that yes, they did the update in a hurry and forgot. I doubt SCOB blocked off seats for single-session sales - LOCs prefer to sell all-event tix - so most likely the remaining tix have been sold. No, but people sell tix to events all the time. You could post in the pinned thread...

    U.S. Ice Dance 2022-23 news & updates

    Thanks for posting! Vadym says in the article that he got his green card 2 years ago, so I think he should theoretically be able to get citizenship in 3 more years.

    2023 U.S. Nationals in San Jose

    I don't believe Hilton has been a USFS sponsor for a few years. In 2012, when they were still a sponsor, there was a spectator rate offered there.
