LEVEL 8 ELIGIBILITY
The skater and their coach should enter the skater at the level that most closely matches their ability. There are no test entry requirements. Skaters may choose to skate at the higher level when they are able to do so and are not required to wait until the next following season.
This level follows the ISU Senior requirements under ISU Communications. Any amendments to the ISU requirements will be deemed to be automatically incorporated.
Skaters may have a facilitator present at all times who will assist the skater to commence the performance and where necessary to leave the ice surface after the performance. During the performance the assistance provided by the facilitator should be kept to a minimum and if deemed excessive will result in sanction by the Referee. Skaters may request adjustments to the volume of the music where necessary to facilitate their performance. The facilitator may skate on to the ice with the skater where necessary. The presumption will be in favour of the facilitator skating on the ice with visually impaired skaters. At all times it will only be the performance of the skater that is judged and the facilitator shall be ignored for the purposes of judging.
