What is Test Day?

Skate Canada Testing is where the skater’s progress is measured. It is a separate day that is outside of the regular practice sessions.  A Skate Canada official/evaluator comes to the rink to perform evaluations on the skaters in the following four disciplines:

When are Test Days?

Normally in Dec, Feb, Mar, April and one in Spring and one in Summer depending on the availability of evaluators, and may be during school hours, requiring a skater to miss school. Please refer to the Calendar for more details.

Who may test?

The coach determines whether the skater is ready to try a Skate Canada test. The skater’s name gets posted on a list 2 weeks prior to the test day. The rule is: once posted, the skater is obligated to take the test and to pay the Skate Canada Test Fees. Skate Canada will only accept medical reasons or withdrawal due to inclement weather for not taking a test and the Skate Canada Test Fee portion of the Test Fee will be refunded; all other reasons get marked as a retry with no refunds allowed.

Test Payment

Test fees will be communicated approximately 10 to 14 days prior to the test day.  Payment of Test Fees must be made prior to testing on our website.  Please choose TEST DAY REGISTRATIONS in the Quick Navigation on the Registration page.  You may choose a credit card, Visa debit or use any available gift certificates that you may have.  CHEQUES/CASH are no longer accepted. The Dance Partner Fee is a separate payment. This is between you and your coach and is paid to the coach. Test Fees and the Dance Partner Fee need to be paid prior to the test being taken.  Skate Canada stipulates that all test fees must be paid in advance.  

What happens on test day?

Most important, ARRIVE AT LEAST 45 MINUTES prior to the scheduled test time. The test day may run ahead and often do. Immediately at arrival, check the Test Schedule, and determine whether the test times are ahead on-time or behind. Avoid panic on test days!

What to wear?

The skater must be dressed appropriately. The coach will advise the skater on what is expected. Gloves and a warm-up jacket are allowed during warm-up, make sure they can be easily removed for the actual test.

Skating Office

On Test Day, the skating office is restricted to Test Day volunteers, coaches, and the test evaluator.

Test Results

Test results are distributed approximately 30 minutes after the test.  The results are given to the coach who will review them with the skater.  Although LBFSC and Skate Canada keep records of the results, they do not keep copies of the actual test sheets so please keep these for your own records as they cannot be reproduced.

The coach is the only person allowed to discuss the test results with the official/judge.

Inevitably there will be times where tests are not successful and require a ‘retry’.  It is important to be supportive of the skaters regardless of the result.

How can you help?

Test Days need some volunteers to bring snacks or food for the evaluators, to play the music for tests and to collect the test fees. You can sign-up now on the list provided or the Test Chair will send an e-mail before the Test Day asking for volunteers.

This is a testing environment; ensure that all skaters are respected by family and friends who are watching in the stands.  Stay clear of the door used by skaters, coaches and dance partners. Videos and cameras are allowed, but please do not distract the skaters and never use flash photography.


 Finally, join us in being proud of our skaters on test days!
