Some of our Amazing Skaters Advance to US Nationals
We are very proud of these skaters and the many who competed in the National Qualifying Series!
Check out this inspiring article featuring Vanessa Pham and her partner, Jonathan Rogers
"Pham may not have viewed ice dance through that lens when she first tried it nearly five years ago, but stepping beyond her comfort zone and embracing the nuances of the sport has led her to see that you never know what awaits when you branch out – and allowed her to experience a few items on her bucket list along the way."

February Test Session
Be sure to check your email for important information regarding the test session. Due to a multitude of different reasons and issues, instead of canceling our February test session we have opted to offer an "in person" virtual test session where we will record your video and submit it to the judges. This session will run just like normal test session only your skater will be recorded vs. being in front of judges.
1. Skaters arrive 45 minutes before their warm up time.
2. Skaters will have one run through of their test just as if the judges were present.
3. A test session monitor will record the video and submit it.
4. Due to the uniqueness of this session, there will be no re-skates allowed.
We understand this format may bring lots of questions and maybe even some resistance. We are basing this format with the same rules and regulations that College Station has successfully ran their virtual test sessions. If you are unsure of this format, you may opt to submit your own videos and paperwork through the additional virtual session we have open. We will submit those tests to the virtual judges we have at the same time. We are expecting results from all tests within 2 weeks at the latest.
