Judge Schedule

We look forward to welcoming all of you next month to our 37th Annual World Recreational Team Championships in Southern California! Please take a minute to check the schedule of events that has been posted online since June 15th. Because of the complexity of the schedule, we have virtually no flexibility to make changes. As with all national events, there are some close event times, and we know many of you are worried about the travel between the two rink buildings. Both buildings, however, are essentially off the same surface street (Carson) and we are assured that even during rush hour, the drive between the two is only 40 minutes. In addition to that, we will be running the events as close to "on time" as possible. We will not run early unless all competitors have checked in.

In order to run such a large event, we will need all of you for judging as there are 151 judge panels to fill. The panels are relatively short, usually only around an hour to an hour and a half, give or take, so you can work around your skaters' schedules. When you give 4 panel choices, please make sure that all the choices do not overlap, otherwise they are not actual choices.

How do I sign up?
Please download and print a Judge Schedule Request form. Fax it to the office at 972-725-8815, or simply send an email to KHansen@skateisi.org . If you choose to send an email, please include your name, ISI number, rink, certification level and at least 4 panels you would be available to judge. (Please be sure you send PANEL numbers....NOT EVENT numbers). As a reminder, in order to judge, all coaches must have a current professional membership and have either taken a judge certification test after August 1, 2016 or taken and passed the 2016 Update Test.

The deadline to return your judge request form is Friday June 30.

After June 30, the only way to receive a credential would be:
1. Take a minimum of 2 panels as assigned by ISI
2. Pay $150 for a coach credential (see below)

What is a Coach Credential?
If you are not able to judge at this event, but plan to put skaters on the ice, you will need to purchase a coach credential for $150. You can do this by downloading and printing the Paid Coach Credential form and faxing it to the ISI office by Friday, June 30. All coaches must be current professional members of ISI to purchase a Coach Credential.

Don't forget, you must have a judge or coach credential to put skaters on the ice or access the hospitality room. NO EXCEPTIONS!

All Coaches for this year's ISI World Team Championships are requested to attend the Judge and Coach meeting on Sunday, July 16th at the Doubletree by Hilton, 100 The City Drive, Orange, CA 92868 at 4:30pm. All credentials will be distributed at this time and we will have a reception immediately following.

How do I Purchase Practice Ice?
Practice Ice will be available for purchase on Saturday, July 1 at 12:00pm (PT). The cost will be $15/30 minutes for individuals and $200/30 minutes for teams. All purchases must be linked to an account on the individual rinks' web site, so an account must be created in order to purchase practice ice.

Here are the steps to purchase practice ice:

Again, this will be up and running beginning 7/1/17.

What about items for the Program Book?
Good Luck Ads, Good Sport Awards and Team photos must be submitted by June 26 for publishing in the Program book. All Good Luck Ads and Team photos should be sent to CJackson@skateisi.org. Good Sport Awards should be sent to Sandey@skateisi.org.

Thank you for your support of the event and the participation of your teams and skaters. With your help, this will be a fantastic week of skating.

See you soon!
