Audition Day Information

USFS Pre-Preliminary to Senior level:
Please arrive at the rink at least 30 minutes before your audition time so you have time to check in, get your audition number, turn in waivers, and get skates on.

Learn to Skate:
Please arrive at the rink no later than 8:00 am to give you time to check in, get your audition number, turn in waivers, have measurements double checked, and get skates on before your audition.

– Please note that Learn to Skate is now in our last audition time slot to allow our largest group enough time to get through the check-in process and be on the ice by 9 am.



We will no longer have costume measurements on the same day as auditions. Bonus – no more waiting in long lines during auditions! LTS skaters’ measurements will be verified on Audition Day.

We have two waivers that will need to be downloaded, signed, and brought to auditions. You will drop them off at skater check-in.


Learn to Skate – If your skater has a favorite skating skirt or dress, this is the perfect time to wear it! However, skaters can wear anything that they are comfortable with. Please don’t go out and buy anything special for this day. Leggings, jeans, fleece coats, etc..are fine. If your skater wears a helmet, please bring it. We also encourage gloves and/or hats to keep warm.

USFS – This is your time to shine! Wear your favorite competition or testing dress/outfit. Do your hair and makeup. If you want to be a specific character in the show, dress the part! This is your opportunity to WOW the committee and casting coaches.
