GRIMSBY RJS OPEN SUNDAY 10th FEBRUARY 2013

 

These competition program requirements fit with the National Test Structure requirements despite there being specification of elements in the test structure.  As with the current test structure, all elements performed are as per ISU current regulations.    This therefore allows skaters to perform RJS test and competition elements as per the established criteria (ISU regulations 2010) and indeed as per the IJS criteria and clarifications. (Communication 1649, 1724 and 1741)

 

These Generic Criteria must be read in conjunction with the ISU Regulations 2010, any subsequent ISU communications, including the communication  regarding listed jumps and the Communications issued after Congress in June 2012.

Ladies and Men may not compete together in the same singles competitions.  These singles competitions must be split into separate Ladies and Men’s events.  This does not apply to any exhibition events where this is at the discretion of the club.  Tests passed after the closing date DO NOT allow entry to be transferred to another level under any circumstances.

 

The Generic Criteria are the same for all Opens, whether judged under the RJS (6.0) or the IJS.  This event will be judged using the RJS
