Ice Show Eligibility Requirements

To provide skaters with an opportunity to showcase their skills outside of large group numbers, show directors award Solo numbers, Duets, Trios, Small Groups, and Spotlight performances, to club members who meet level-specific qualifications.

In order to be eligible for these numbers in the 2019 ice show, skaters must have met or maintained the below outlined requirements or qualifications between July 1, 2018 and December 5, 2018 (the 2018-2019 competitive season).

Open Auditions (“Try Outs”):

Based on performance needs of the show, directors may hold open audition sessions to allow skaters to “try out” to be considered for additional performance responsibilities. The purpose of these try outs is to fill any open or extra spots in specialty, group, and/or spotlight numbers at any level .

If determined necessary, auditions are open to the following skaters:

  • Any WB Pre-Preliminary level competitor who wishes to be considered for open spots in additional numbers, eligibility-level upgrades, spotlight numbers, or general performance needs
  • Any skater who has passed the Juvenile level or above Free Skate but has not competed at that level in this season
  • Skaters who were injured and unable to compete during the 2018-2019 season
  • Skaters at any level who are invited by the show directors

Show needs dictate the number and type of open spots, which can vary year to year. Assignments as a
result of auditioning are at the discretion of the show directors. Participation in the try out does not
guarantee a performance assignment.
