S3(S)        Free Skating            A competitor in the Adult Silver Free Skating event must perform a
                                     well-balanced program that may contain:
Adult Singles
Silver                               a. A maximum of five (5) jump elements. The single Axel or any
                                     other single Axel type jump and all other single jumps are
                                     permitted. No double jumps are permitted.
                                     A jump combination may consist of the same or another single
                                     jump. There may be up to three jump combinations or jump
                                     sequences in the Free Program. One jump combination could
                                     consist of up to three (3) listed jumps, the other two up to two (2)
                                     listed jumps.
                                     A jump sequence may consist of any number of single jumps
                                     that may be linked by non-listed jumps like mazurkas, etc. and/or
                                     hops immediately following each other while maintaining the jump
                                     rhythm (knee); there can be no turns/steps, crossovers or stroking
                                     during the sequence. However, only the two jumps with the highest
                                     value will count. Please note that a half loop in combination with
                                     any other listed jump will result in a jump combination.
                                     Any listed jump can be repeated only once and this repetition
                                     must be done either in a jump combination or in a jump
                                     sequence.
                                     Non-listed jumps may be included in the program as part of
                                     connecting footwork, preceding single jumps or an axel type
                                     jump.

                                     b. A maximum of three (3) spins of different abbreviations, one of
                                     which must be a spin combination.

                                             foot
                                           four (4) for a spin combination with no change of foot and
                                           eight (4 + 4) for a spin with change of foot.
                                     There must be a minimum of two (2) revolutions in each position
                                     or the position will not be counted.

                                     the usual pattern (e.g., half a serpentine, half of a straight line etc.)
                                     In case of a circular step sequence a full circle is required
                                     covering 1/2 the width of the ice surface. To be counted a spiral
                                     sequence must include at least two (2) spiral positions of not less
                                     than 3 secs each or one (1) spiral position not less than 6 secs
                                     long.

                                     Only the first executed attempt of a choreo- step sequence or
                                     choreo-spiral sequence will contribute to the technical score.

                                     Additional spiral sequences and step sequences will not be
                                     counted as a step sequence but will be counted as moves-in-the
                                     field (transitions) and marked as such.

                Duration             The maximum time is 2:10 secs, but may be less.

PAIR SKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS

2 Categories: Advanced and General

The National Ice Skating Association (NISA) reserves the right to combine age Categories as they
deem appropriate. Where partners have ages that fall in two different Categories the younger
category applies.

Advanced (A)        Must be 21 before 1st July 2009 (no upper age limit)

Pair Skating                         Pair events consist of Free Skating only. Each pair must consist of
                                     a man and a lady.

Artistic Free Skating Competition
                      There will be one (1) “Artistic Free Skating Event” for Ladies (AFL)
                      and one (1) “Artistic Free Skating Event” for Men (AFM)

Duration:             The maximum time is 1 minute and 40 seconds but may be less.
                      Vocal music is permitted.

                      The artistic event will be judged only on the basis of Programme
                      Components:
                      • Skating skills
                      • Transitions
                      • Performance/Execution
                      • Choreography/Composition
                      • Interpretation/Timing

                      There will be no technical panel and no technical mark given.
                      (See ISU Special Regulations and Technical Rules 2010, Singles &
                      Pair Skating, Rule 522, paragraph 2 for a detailed description of
                      Program Components.)

                      The artistic program consists of a variety of skating moves selected for
                      their value in enhancing the skater’s interpretation of the music rather
                      than for their technical difficulty. Skaters will be judged on their ability
                      to interpret the music and develop a theme by using their skating
                      skills.
                      The artistic free skate is a competitive program which must include
                      elements of the sport of figure skating.

                             At least one (1) but a maximum of two (2) single jumps and at least
                              one (1) but a maximum of two (2) spins MUST be included. No axel
                              type jump or double jumps are allowed. No combination jumps are
                              allowed. Credit for jumps and spins is based solely on the ability of
                              such movements to enhance the chosen theme and support the
                              music. Credit will not be given for their technical difficulty.

                      Any element exceeding the maximum number as set forth above will be
                      judged as an illegal element ( 2.0 deduction); if there is no jump or no
                      spin element included or only a jump and no spin or vice versa a
                      deduction for a “missing element” of 2.0 will be made. The Referee is
                      responsible for such deductions.

                      Costumes should be simple, tasteful and selected to enhance the
                      performance by appropriately reflecting the character of the music and
                      theme.
                      Props may not be used in any part of the artistic programs. Any item
                      that is held in the hand or removed during the performance is
                      considered a prop. Thus, for example, a hat worn throughout the
                      program is not considered to be a prop, but if it is intentionally removed
                      during the performance it is considered a prop. Objects on the ice,
                      thrown in the audience, placed on the boards or on the judges table are
                      not permitted. Costumes that contain particles that may mark or leave
                      anything on the ice surface (feathers, boas, excessive beading) are
                      considered unsafe and are not permitted. The Referee is responsible
                      for prop deductions.

                      Illegal elements:
                      - Somersault type jumps
                      - lying on the ice and prolonged and/or stationary kneeling on both
                      knees on the ice
