Securing Officials for an in-person Test Session

1) Due to the distance our club is from the closest officials and due to the high demand for officials to judge tests, the highest official secured for the test session will determine the level of tests that can be tried.

2) The test chair will make every effort to attain the appropriate level of official based on applications received.

3) If you are testing intermediate or higher, or any dance, please contact the test chair at least four weeks in advance so we can locate appropriate judges.

4) Any test application received after the deadline will only be accepted at the discretion of the test chair under the following conditions: (a) The session is not full, (b) Only if the proper level official has been acquired.

5) If an official has been secured for the test session and does not have the necessary credentials for the applicant's test, the applicant will be notified and placed on the next test session.

Scheduling of in-person Test Sessions

1) Dates are determined based on available ice time, test chair's schedule and the availability of officials.

2) Test sessions must have enough applicants to complete a minimum of 1 hour.
