Testing Outside Of Your Home Club

In order for a skater to participate in a U.S. Figure Skating sanctioned event at a club other than his/her home club, the following form must be 1) completed by the skater, 2) returned to the Tampa Bay Skating Club for an officer of the skater’s home club to sign, and 3) the signing officer will return to the skater for submission along with the the test registration(see NOTE).

Please click on the icon to access the required USFS Permission Form

NOTE: In order to process in a timely manner, we request that the permission form be completed prior to registering for the event. That way, a fully signed permission form can be submitted along with the test registration.

It is highly recommended that, at a minimum, anyone testing outside of your home rink have a completed permission form and the test registration completed one week prior to the test date.

This form can also be used for USFS Shows, exhibitions, ice shows and competitions.



U.S. Figure Skating and Learn to Skate USA® Members, 

All adult participants (i.e., coaches/instructors, athletes, officials, volunteers, club and program leaders, etc.) are required to report suspected child abuse and/or sexual misconduct to the U.S. Center for SafeSport™ and local law enforcement. Reports can be made to the Center here or by calling 833-5US-SAFE (587-7233). All other SkateSafe® violations, such as emotional and physical misconduct, bullying, harassment, or violations of the U.S. Figure Skating SkateSafe® Handbook, must be made directly to U.S. Figure Skating here
U.S. Figure Skating’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion ensures that we take seriously the need to foster an environment where all members can show up as their most authentic selves safely. We are committed in policy, principle and practice to sustain a nondiscriminatory approach on and off the ice for all members and will not tolerate any acts of discrimination or harassment of members based on race, color, religion, age, gender, gender identity, sex, sexual orientation, disability or national origin. You can find more information on U.S. Figure Skating’s DEI program here
Allegations related to creating an unsafe mental or physical environment for members are taken seriously and must be reported as listed above. 
We encourage all minor athletes and their parents to take the corresponding training course available on the SafeSport™ portal. These elective courses are separate from the annual required SafeSport™ compliance course and have been designed to provide age-appropriate education on topics like identifying trusted adults, positive sportsmanship, bullying, hazing, misconduct and abuse. The available courses are:

We do want to emphasize you should be logged in to the appropriate profile when taking your training (i.e., parents are logged into their account when taking the parent course, and minors are logged into their account when taking the athlete course).
