Calling All Coaches!
We look forward to welcoming all of you in a little more than 5 weeks to our 2019 Holiday Challenge! Please take a minute to double check the schedule of events that has been posted online. As with all national events and due to crossover skaters, there are some close event times, but with the event running on one surface, your skaters should be able to make their events without a problem. 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.
Practice ice will be available for purchase in the near future...please check the ISI website for information over the coming week.
We will need all of you for judging as there will be many panels to fill. The panels are relatively short, usually only around an hour, give or take, so you can work around your skaters' schedules.
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 3 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, 2018 or taken and passed the 2018 Update Test.
The deadline to return your judge request form is Thursday, October 10.
After October 10, the only way to receive a credential would be:
1. Take a minimum of 2 panels as assigned by ISI
2. Pay $50 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 $50. You can do this by downloading and printing the Paid Coach Credential form and faxing it to the ISI office by October 10. 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!
We will not be having a formal judge meeting simply due to the schedule. A video will be sent out to all coaches with the most pertinent information about the event the week before. Credentials will be available for pick up beginning Saturday morning, October 26 at 7:30am in the ISI office at the Rosegarden Ice Arena.
Please be sure to send all photos of your skaters/teams that you would like to be in the program book to CJackson@skateisi.org by no later than October 2.
Thank you for your support of the event and the participation of your teams and skaters. With your help, this will be a fantastic weekend of skating. See you soon!
