Practice Ice

Skaters will be permitted to reserve one session per event by paying for it at the time of registration.  Pre-paid practice ice is available at a discount.  There will be a short period of time after the close of entries and once the schedule is posted for those who reserved practice ice to select their practice sessions.

**Please note that USFS will let you know which practice sessions are available to skaters based on their level, but not based on the date of their event. Please check the practice ice selections carefully so you do not select a session after your skater's event!

Skaters who do not pre-pay and reserve practice ice when registering will still be able to purchase practice ice on-line.  On-line practice ice is also available at a slight discount.  This opportunity will become available after those who pre-paid for their practice ice have a limited time to select their sessions.  The opportunity to purchase practice ice through with a credit card will expire the night before competition begins.

Remaining practice ice will be available first-come, first-served at the competition.  Payment for this practice ice is online only.  Those who pre-purchased practice ice but did not select a session will be able to select sessions at the competition.

Certain practice sessions will be reserved for skaters advancing to final rounds and will not be available for purchase on-line in advance of the competition.

We regret that no refunds are available for practice ice.
