TECHNICAL ANNOUNCEMENT
GENERAL
The 2011 U.S. Figure Skating Adult qualifying competition season consists of four events, including three
qualifying events (adult sectional championships – Eastern, Midwestern, and Pacific Coast) and the 2011 U.S.
Adult Figure Skating Championships. All four events are sanctioned by U.S. Figure Skating and conducted
according to the most current U.S. Figure Skating Rulebook (2010-2011 Edition) with changes and clarifications as
posted on the U.S. Figure Skating web site and this announcement. Compliance with these rules as updated or
amended is the responsibility of the participants. U.S. Figure Skating reserves the right to incorporate revisions to
the International Judging System (IJS) made by the ISU.

The U.S. Adult Sectional Championships and U.S. Adult Figure Skating Championship events are open only to
current members of U.S. Figure Skating who meet the eligibility requirements according to U.S. Figure Skating
Rule 3035, all age and test requirements pertaining to the event you are entering, and the citizen and residency
requirements as stated in Rule 3065.

Non-U.S. citizens who have already received a letter of permission from the Chair of the Competitions Committee
and were accepted to compete in the U.S. Figure Skating qualifying system are eligible to register. All other non-
U.S. citizens seeking eligibility must meet the requirements set forth in Rule 3065 and rule 3051B.

Important Notice for all Coaches
NEW REQUIREMENT: To coach at a U.S. Figure Skating qualifying level competition, a professional coach or
choreographer must be listed as Coaches Education Requirement (CER) Category A compliant. See the PSA
website for CER categories and a list of compliant coaches.
All coaches must comply with the coaches’ registration policy in order to be allowed to instruct/coach at all
qualifying competitions. Coaches will need to check in at the event registration desk and show a government issued
photo I.D. to receive a credential. Each local organizing committee (LOC) will be provided with a list of coaches
who are cleared for a credential at the competition. For coaches who are NOT on the list, the LOC will ask to see
proof of membership in both U.S. Figure Skating and the PSA, a Coaches Registration card, proof of Category A
compliance in CER, and a photo ID at check in. If a coach cannot provide a photo I.D. and is not on the list or
cannot produce the necessary documents, he or she will not be allowed a credential – no exceptions. We
strongly urge all coaches to have their cards with them.

For the 2011 competition season, the three qualifying events (sectional championships) will be held at the following
locations:
        Eastern         Pittsburgh Figure Skating Club- Pittsburgh, Pa. (Feb. 25-27, 2011)

    memberservices@usfigureskating.org.



B. DEADLINES
    The entry deadline for the 2011 Adult Sectional Championships is 11:59 p.m., Feb, 1, 2011.

    The entry deadline for the 2011 U.S. Adult Championship is 11:59 p.m., Feb, 1, 2011.

2011 Adult Sectional Figure Skating Championships                                      Page 4 of 20
C. ELIGIBILITY
   This event is open for participation to all eligible competitors who are members in good standing of U.S. Figure
   Skating per rule 3050, E.R 1.02 and 1.06. For championship events at the U.S. Adult Championships and
   Adult Sectional Championships, non-U.S. citizens must meet the requirements of rule 3066. “Non-U.S. Citizen
   Application to Compete” and supporting documentation must be submitted to the Chair of the Competitions
   Committee no later than Feb. 1, 2011. Read Rule 3066 for complete details. Forms are available on the U.S.
   Figure Skating web site. Those entering non-championship (open) events at sectionals and U.S. Adult
   Championships are not subject to Rule 3066, but fall under rule 3051B, which states that they must be legal
   residents of the U.S. and meet all other test, age and membership qualifications. Non-U.S. citizens entering
   open events need only fill in the appropriate boxes on the nonqualifying entry form.

   Skaters may not enter an adult level at a qualifying competition (Adult sectionals/U.S. Adult Championships)
   and a standard level at a qualifying competition (regionals/sectionals/U.S. Championships) in the same kind of
   event, in the same competition season and vice versa. For example, a skater may not enter novice men free
   skate on the standard track and masters free skate on the adult track in the same season, but may enter novice
   men free skate on the standard track and masters pairs on the adult track.

   Age and test qualifications as of entry deadline date will determine event eligibility and classification for all.
   Tests passed after close of entries and prior to the event will disqualify skaters if test exceeds maximum
   requirement for the event entered in this competition.
   Skaters may compete in as many disciplines as qualified by test level but may compete in only one event per
   discipline (maximum total of four events). As an exception, a competitor who qualifies to enter a championship
   event in adult dance, adult pairs, adult masters free skate or adult gold free skate through their adult sectional
   championships may also enter an open event at the test level for which they may be qualified. However, if a
   scheduling conflict occurs that cannot be resolved by the Chief Referee, the skater may be asked to choose to
   omit an event.

D. AGE CATEGORIES
   Per rule 3292, there shall be age categories for all singles free skate and interpretive events, except
   championship events. For the 2011 competitive season, the age categories at the U.S. Adult Championships are
   as follows:

       Class I:         21 years through 30 years
       Class II:        31 years through 40 years
       Class III:       41 years through 50 years
       Class IV:        51 years through 60 years
       Class V:         61 years and over

   All age categories may be divided or combined depending on the number of entries. Masters levels
   (intermediate/novice/junior/senior) may also be combined but divided by age. This authority lies with the chief
   referee.

   Events with two skaters MAY be combined with the closest appropriate group and/or level if a skater
   withdraws from the event during the conduct of the competition. This ensures that the remaining skater has an
   event in which to compete.

   Proof of age is required for all events. Acceptable forms of documentation include birth certificate, passport or
   similar proof. The LOC reserves the right to require additional information.

E. BYES
   No medical byes will be considered. There will be no competition byes to the U.S. Adult Figure Skating
   Championships.
2011 Adult Sectional Figure Skating Championships                                   Page 5 of 20
F. FOUR OR FEWER
   When there are four or fewer competitors in an adult sectional qualifying event (championship intermediate-
   novice free skate, championship junior-senior free skate, championship adult gold free skate, championship
   adult pairs, championship adult dance), the skaters shall be required to compete. (If there is only one competitor
   or team in an event, that person/team moves directly to the U.S. Adult Championships without having to
   perform at sectionals.) If, at the close of entries, there are fewer than four competitors registered for a
   qualifying event at a sectional adult championship, additional competitors from the same qualifying event in
   other sections shall be permitted to enter the U.S. Adult Championships in order to bring the number of
   competitors up to a maximum of 12 (or more if ties make it necessary). See rule 3172.

G. ENTRY FEES
   All competitors entering the 2011 adult qualifying competition season must submit payment of the appropriate
   entry fee (amounts listed below) to U.S. Figure Skating. All competitors are required to pay both the entry fee
   into the qualifying competition season (for each event entered) and the administrative fee. All fees are
   nonrefundable.


   2011 Adult Qualifying Competition Season Entry Fees
    Entry Fee    Level/Discipline
    $120         Championship Events (Adult Sectional Championships)
    $120         First singles event (U.S. Adult Championships)
    $80          Each subsequent singles event (U.S. Adult Championships)
    $120         Dance event per team ($60 per individual)
    $120         Pairs event per team ($60 per individual)
    $10          Administrative fee/transaction (All transactions subject to payment of
                      administrative fee)

   U.S. Adult Championships Entry Fees
   Those competitors advancing in the championship events from the three sectional championships will not have
   to submit an additional entry fee to compete in the same event at the 2011 U.S. Adult Championships.
   However, the championship events are not considered the “first singles event.” Therefore, those wishing to
   enter another event must pay the “first singles event” fee. For example, if you want to enter adult gold free
   skate and masters interpretive free skate at the U.S. Adult Championships, you would pay $120 for the first
   singles event and $80 for one subsequent singles event – a total of $200. If you enter an open dance event and
   wish to also enter a solo dance event, you would pay $220 ($120 for the first dance event, $120 for the first
   singles event). Additional pair/dance events would be an additional $120 for each event, subsequent singles
   events would be $80 per event.
   Once entries have closed, entry fees are only refundable if the competition is not held. There are no refunds for
   medical withdrawals. The chief referee reserves the right to divide or cancel an event when necessary.

   Your registration is not valid until all appropriate entry and administrative fees have been paid and all
   required forms have been completed online to U.S. Figure Skating.

H. PAYMENT
   Online payment via credit card is the ONLY accepted form of payment.

   All withdrawals are considered final after a skater has entered. Once withdrawn, a skater may not re-
   enter, even if the withdrawal occurs prior to the entry deadline on Feb, 1, 2011.

   The well-balanced program charts for all levels and disciplines are posted on the U.S. Figure Skating web site
   at http://www.usfigureskating.org/Programs.asp?id=112. As referenced earlier in this announcement, U.S.
   Figure Skating will incorporate all changes made by the ISU in regards to well-balanced programs. Please refer
   to this web site for continuous updates.

D. PLANNED PROGRAM CONTENT SHEET
   As part of the registration process, all competitors competing in the championship events, and those events at
   the gold level and higher during the 2011 adult competition season, are required to submit a planned program
   content sheet as part of the registration process (online submission preferred) in order to finalize your
   application. The PPCS is to be completed by everyone entering the 2011 U.S. Adult Championships in the
   aforementioned events no later than the close of entries on Feb. 1, 2011, but can be updated up to one week
   prior to your competition.

   Please go to www.usfsaonline.org and follow the instructions to complete your planned program content sheet.

E. MUSIC
   COMPETITON MUSIC INFORMATION (Required component of online registration)
   U.S. Figure Skating requires all competitors to fully complete a competition music information form as part of
   the online registration process.

   The following information is required for each piece of music used in the composition of the short
   program/original dance and free skate/free dance: composer, orchestra, duration of music, record label/number
   (optional but highly recommended if obtainable).

   New for 2011
   Use of vocal music - per rule 3502(A)(1) - all adult skating levels from pre-bronze through Masters Novice
   may use vocal music for free skating programs.

   COMPACT DISCS (CDs)
   For all qualifying events during the 2011 season, CDs are the only acceptable media. CDs must be clearly
   marked with name, event entered and the music length. Each CD must have only ONE (1) track on it. Any
   disc with more than one (1) track will NOT be accepted! Lead in time (time before the music begins) on CDs
   may not exceed two (2) seconds.
   Each CD must be in a paper CD sleeve with a see through window (obtainable at any office supply store), also
   labeled with the skater’s name and event. Standard hard plastic jewel cases or other CD holders are no longer
   acceptable. CDs that are not properly identified will NOT be accepted. Due to compatibility and reliability
   reasons, music may NOT be submitted on re-recordable "CD-RW" discs.

   All competition music must be turned in at the registration desk at the time of registration. At the
   Championships, competitors will not receive their credentials at registration until they turn in their music.

   The official bulletin board will contain any announcements or changes, and it is the responsibility of the
   competitors to check it often for official notices. Please refer to the local portion of the announcement for
   further information regarding the bulletin board.

G. SCHEDULE
   A tentative schedule will be posted on the event web site as soon as possible, hopefully by mid to late February.
   This schedule will not include event times, only the days on which each event will be held. A schedule will not
   be finalized until after the completion of the three adult sectional championships in late February. The tentative
   schedule is a preliminary schedule; therefore, skaters should NOT rely upon this schedule in making travel
   arrangements.
