Series Rules and Point System

Mission Statement: Our mission is to give skaters a chance to develop their US Figure Skating Learn to Skate in a fun, yet competitive environment.  During the competition season, the skaters will have the chance to compete at many different clubs and arenas and earn points for a final standing trophy award. NEW JERSEY RESIDENCY IS NOT REQUIRED AND THE SERIES IS NOT LIMITED TO MEMBERS OF NEW JERSEY CLUBS OR LEARN TO SKATE PROGRAMS.

A trophy will be presented to the skater with the highest point total when they compete in at least two of the scheduled competitions.  A list of competitions and point accumulation(s) can be found at www.northjerseyfsc.org.  Winners will receive their trophy at Ice Vault Arena at Garden State Games in June, 2017.

The Freeskate and Compulsory/Elements events in each of the Series Competitions will be eligible for accumulating points. Each event will have a maximum of 6 skaters. The system for scoring points for the final trophy award will be as follows:

Place

Points

1

6
2

5

3

4

If an event has 2-6 skaters, the points will be awarded as if 6 skaters were in the group. If there is only one skater in the group, that skater will be awarded 3 points. Points are accumulated for Freeskate and Elements/Compulsory events separately.

A skater may participate in either or both of the Freeskate and/or Element/Compulsory events in order to be eligible for accumulating points. The events and levels eligible for a final trophy are:

Snowplow Sam through Basic 6 Elements

Snowplow Sam through Basic 6 Program with Music

Pre-Freeskate through 6 Compulsory Moves

Pre-Freeskate through 6 Program with Music

Each Series competition shall award medals for at least first, second, and third place at each level.

Skaters moving to the next level during the Series will take their points with them and earn a one-time 3-point bonus.

Test Track, Well Balanced (including Beginner, High Beginner, and No Test), Jumps, Spins, Dance, Pairs, Artistic, Adult and Synchronized Team events will NOT earn points in the Series and are NOT eligible for a trophy.
