High Tests are centralized, which means that skaters from throughout the BC Coast Region are expected to travel to designated club rinks in the Lower Mainland to do their tests. Over two hundred tests can be submitted for designated High Test weekends, and the Chairperson for the Test Bureau is responsible for deciding how these tests will be scheduled on the ice provided. A schedule will be sent to the coaches for distribution, and posted on the SkateCanada BC Coast Region website.
The posted schedules can be found at the following link under “Tests”http://www.skatebccoast.com/downloads.php
Skaters and their parents must be prepared to be available on whichever day their particular tests are scheduled. Over 1,000 high tests are conducted each year in the BC Coast Region!
CATEGORIES of High Test:
Freeskate – Senior Silver and Gold
Skills – Senior Silver and Gold
