A virtual test is a test that you can take at a time and place of your own choosing.

To take a virtual test you must do the following:

  • Register for a virtual test session being offered by a USFS member club. Knickerbocker FSC will begin running virtual test sessions. Registration for the test will be through Entryeeze and the cost of the virtual test will be the same as the cost of a regular test, but without the ice fee.

  • Arrange for a videographer. The videographer may be any person (parents, friends and/or coaches are acceptable in this role) with any device that can record a minimum of 780p.

  • Arrange for a test proctor. The proctor must be an impartial person of authority but may NOT be a coach/choreographer who has worked with the athlete, training mate or a parent/guardian of the athlete. A rink employee who is normally present at the time you intend to skate your test would be an excellent choice to fill this role.

  • Skate the elements of the test in the presence of the test proctor. The elements of the test must be executed in order and continuously just as you would perform them at a regular test. The videographer will stand where the judges would normally sit and video the ENTIRE TEST IN ONE CONTINUOUS SHOT, keeping the test candidate in frame throughout the entire test.

  • The video of the test along with all paperwork must be submitted to Knickerbocker prior to the submission deadline of the virtual test session.
