Level 7 Figure (ISU Junior)
a) Well balanced Free program with technical requirements specified for ISU Junior program and in accordance with ISU Technical Rules Single and Pair Skating 2010 Rule 512 and the respective ISU Communication. No short program will be required.
b) No age restrictions apply
Men – 4 minutes +/- 10 sec.
Ladies – 3 minutes 30 seconds +/- 10 sec.
d) The average hypothetical score is 48.00 for Ladies and 58.00 for Men. Skaters who are classified will have their whole person impairment percentage (WPI%) of the average hypothetical score added to their skating score as follows.
e.g. WPI% x 48.00 = Impairment Compensation
Impairment Compensation + IJS Skating Score = Skaters Total Score
Level 7 ELIGIBILITY
Level 7 is the first level that is judged on the ISU full IJS system.
The skater and their coach should enter the skater at the level that most closely matches their ability. There are no test entry requirements. Any skater who progresses and develops their skills beyond the level entered during the season will be expected to move up to the next level in the next following season.
This level follows the ISU Junior Requirements. Any amendments to the ISU requirements will be deemed to be automatically incorporated. All skaters will be able to skate at this level and will not be restricted as to age.
This level may be split into the age categories of children (12 and below), youth (13 to 18)and adult (18 and over). Where skaters are reaching an elite level for their impairment then the Youth and Adult categories may be combined and ages adjusted accordingly
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 should be ignored for the purposes of judging.
