Thank you
Caspen Black
36:35
Does that mean people can only compete twice in NQS events?
Mary Finver
37:12
Is there any chance of expanding the number of NQS comps? Our closest comp was a 13 hour drive (2.5 hour flight) We live in south florida
Cassie Prescott | She/Her
37:52
The exact number of NQS competitions athletes will be allowed to compete in is still being reviewed.
Caspen Black
38:23
Thank you Cassie. Is the limit per season or for the athlete's whole life?
Cassie Prescott | She/Her
39:24
Mary, we will not be expanding the number of competitions but will look to diversify every year where we award NQS competitions
Mary Finver
39:42
awesome. Thanks
Cassie Prescott | She/Her
39:43
Caspen, per NQS season
Caspen Black
39:53
Great, thank you. :)

What are the dates for the 2023 US Collegiate Championships?
Megan Romeo (she/her)
41:40
2023 U.S. Collegiate Championships location and dates will be announced very soon!
Madeline Benson
44:05
My phone cut out, what was the third thing?
Rebecca Lichtman
44:21
I didn’t hear either
Saya Carpenter
44:22
Yes mine too
Rael Eckenroed
44:25
Mine too I didn’t get the third one
Madeline Benson
45:12
Thank you!
Rebecca Lichtman
45:22
Thanks!
Mary Finver
46:30
can you still skate up a level?
Grace Song
47:03
Does it also apply to adult figure skating? (E.g. Pre-Bronze, Bronze, Silver, Gold, etc.)
Madeline Benson
47:19
How do the changes to MITF affect a skater that has already finished all tests? Do we have to take more tests?
Jamie Romero
47:25
Yes, that was also my question Grace.
Cassie Prescott | She/Her
47:59
Adults remain unaffected - Kelly will touch on this soon.
Cathryn Schwab
48:47
If a skater registers to compete in Novice in the Excel Series, is Novice their competitive floor for NQS as well?
Megan Romeo (she/her)
49:17
The MITF tests already passed will still stand, the name of the test on the skater's record will change. The actual test requirements are not changing, just the naming convention.
Mia (Corsini) Bailey | she/her
49:25
Cathryn - yes, the floor will extend to both series. This is a starting point and we will monitor how this works for athletes in the field.
Madeline Benson
49:43
Understood, thanks
Ian Z
49:48
Will testing be the SAME as Solo dance????
Dorothy Jones-Davis
49:49
So with the new rule, if you skate up at a NQS, you are locked into that level, correct?
Mia (Corsini) Bailey | she/her
50:16
re: skate up, hang tight for the scenario review.
AShley Brown
50:21
Will this be added to the Solo Dance Series too?
Mia (Corsini) Bailey | she/her
50:32
the next slide covers what events this impacts, and what events it doesn't - hang tight!
AShley Brown
50:38
Sounds good!
Debra Suttner Firer
57:12
can a skater apply to compete in both excel and NQS?
AShley Brown
57:57
Re: Intercollegiate, how will score banding come into play? I imagine several athletes may not have a competitive floor but Intercollegiate is judged in 6.0
Olivienne Kamriani
58:22
does a skater have to compete at the same level for NQS and Excel?
Janine Sauer
58:26
If a skater competed last season in novice in NQS, skated up to junior for excel and is tested novice, what is the competitive floor for that athlete?
Madeline Benson
58:28
How does score banding work for someone with a competitive floor?
Laura Heymer-Passaro
58:45
To clarify, if a skater does NOT have a competitive floor, did not compete in 22-23 NQS or Excel, and they are planning to register for the 23 Excel, and their current FS test passed is Juvenile, what is their level they can register?
Tanya Eltsova
58:56
Can a skater compete in Preliminary Excel and Pre-Pre Well balanced? Or she has to compete Preliminary well balanced?
Debra Suttner Firer
59:15
does this eliminate the age limit for juvenile
Cassie Prescott | She/Her
01:00:21

What is your most memorable competition that you guys have had throughout your skating career?
Grace Song
01:03:06
How do you guys juggle figure skating, work, and school at the same time?
Rebecca Lichtman
01:03:44
What do you like to do in your free time, if you have any??
Saya Carpenter
01:04:25
How do you get through times when you keep popping and can’t stop
Caspen Black
01:06:26
Any advice for an adult skater going for the NQS?
