VIDEO TIPS AND REQUIREMENTS FOR VIRTUAL TEST SESSIONS:
This is a Test Session. Please dress appropriately.
Film in landscape mode. Videos filmed in portrait mode will be rejected.
Remember your date and time stamp at the beginning of the video. USFSA requires you to scan a phone or other electronic device. This is to assure that the video meets the 30 day requirement. Videos without an electronic date and time stamp will be rejected
Remember to announce the skater and test at the beginning of the video. Either verbally, or hold up a piece of paper with the skater name and test written on it. The judges need to verify who they are judging.
Video quality matters. Judges don’t want to watch a poor quality video with a lot of interference. Their scores will reflect the quality of your video.
Avoid zooming in and out during filming. It’s distracting to the judges
Do not film through mesh netting or plexiglass.
It is recommended you place your phone or camera on a tripod to reduce the possibility of a bouncing picture.
With a free skate program – start the video a few seconds before the music starts and wait a few seconds after the music stops to cease filming. You want to capture the complete program, beginning to end.
A MITF test must be skated with NO stopping or starting. There should be a maximum of 10 seconds between moves.
Get the whole skater in the frame. We need to see your feet as well as your face. At all times.
If filming on freestyle ice – USFSA states a maximum of 8 people may be on the ice. Avoid interference from other skaters. You do NOT want another skater to skate between the tester and the camera. The skater cannot receive credit for what the judges cannot see. Videos with skater interference will be rejected.
Make sure that objects, people or parts of the rink do not obscure the full view of the skater and their feet. The video must record the skater in clear view, head to toe, at all times.
Avoid background noise on Moves tests. No background music. No interfering conversations. Do not talk during filming.
For free skate tests – make sure the test music can be heard clearly on the video.
Watch your video before and after upload. Make sure it uploads in landscape mode and that the complete video uploads.
All skaters MUST complete and upload the "Name, Image, Likeness form" and "affidavit form" to their testing folder.
