Eligibility:  This event is open to residents of Wisconsin, Illinois, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Open to all skaters including United States Figure Skating (USFS) and Ice Skating Institute (ISI) skaters.  Skaters from USFS and ISI shall have passed any one or all of the required tests, but not higher tests.  Skaters holding memberships in both USFS and ISI must skate at highest level attained.  For example, a USFS Preliminary / ISI Free Skate 6 skater must skate at the ISI level. Skaters may skate up one level above their test level, but not down a level.
Level is determined as of the date of registration closing.
**NOTE** If, for any reason, the local organizing committee discovers that a skater has been placed in a category that is below their level, the Commissioner and/or Chief Referee have the option to move the skater to the proper division, even if this has to be done the day of the competition.  This is to ensure that every event is as fair as possible to the competitors.
 
General Rules:
Competition Format:  Solo events will be subdivided by age if warranted.  Adult events are for age 19 year and older.  If there is only one registration in the adult category, the Commissioner and/or Chief Referee may place you with the oldest category in the same event at their own discretion.  Placing 1st, 2nd, or 3rd will qualify the skater for State Games of America.  Except where specifically allowed, participants may not enter more than once in the same division.  Participants must be a 
resident of the State of Wisconsin, Illinois, or the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Except where rules herein specifically differ, USFS rules, as set forth in the 2014 Official Rulebook, will preside.
 
Judging: US Figure Skating 6.0 ordinal scoring method will be used for all events.  Judging will be by USFS judges for all events.
 
Music:  All skaters must provide their own music at least 1 hour prior to the event.  Vocal music is permitted.  Only CDs with a single piece of music will be permitted. No more than a 3 second lead-in can be used on CDs. Programs are allowed a 10second leeway from the designated times except where indicated otherwise.  The Badger State Games will make every effort to protect your music, but will not be responsible for CDs. Competitors should have duplicate music with them. Please pick up your music at the registration desk after your event.
 
Governing Body:  This is a USFS sanctioned event, but membership in USFS is NOT required. Registered members of USFS and ISI must be in good standing.
 
Event Cancellations: Any scheduled event may be cancelled if fewer than two skaters are entered. Due to ice limitations, the Chief Referee reserves the right to eliminate events with suitable notification to the entrants and the entry fee will be refunded.
 
Awards:  Medals will be presented to the top three places in each event. 
RETURNING! Team Trophy Championship. Any club that registers at least one SOLO event skater will automatically be entered in the Team Trophy Championship at no extra cost.  There will be awards for the top three clubs that accumulated the most points throughout the competition.  Points will only be scored for solo events. Scoring – 1st place = 3 points; 2nd place = 2 points; 3rd place = 1 point.  Tiebreaker will be handled as follows – 1) Club with the most 1st place finishes; and 2) Club with the most 1st and 2nd place finishes.  No points will be awarded to a skater that does not affiliate themselves with a club when registering for their events.  No skater will be added to a club after registration closes.  Team trophies will be awarded to top three teams approximately 1 hour after the last solo event is skated for the competition.  This will be in the late afternoon on Sunday!  Be prepared for this.
A professional photographer will take group and individual award pictures immediately after the awards are presented.  Personal photography will not be allowed in the award presentation area.
 
Practice Ice:  Skaters will be able to pick their own practice ice sessions online, but you MUST purchase the number of sessions desired when you register online.  You will be able to access your practice ice records and select your sessions approximately 1 week prior to the competition by logging in to your account at Entryeeze through www.BadgerStateGames.org.  Practice ice will be $8 if you pre-purchase.  Limit of 2 pre-purchased practice ice sessions.    Available practice sessions can be purchased at the rink after competition starts for $12 per session.  No props are allowed on practice ice sessions except for exclusive sessions.  Practice ice will be available at the Mosinee Rec Center every morning and evening starting Thursday evening, depending on the competition schedule.  No music will be played during practice ice sessions except for exclusive sessions.  PRACTICE ICE SESSIONS ARE NOT REFUNDABLE AFTER REGISTRATION CLOSES.  We are a single sheet facility, so please be aware that practice ice sessions will be early morning before the competition starts and in the evening after competition has completed.
 
Refund Policy:  Full refunds, including practice ice (minus a $10 cancellation fee) are available if withdrawal is prior to January 3, 2014.  After this date, entry refunds are only available if the event is not held due to lack of entries at the discretion of the Chief Referee and/or Commissioner.  No refunds will be given because an entrant or team fails to participate.  Best efforts will be made to hold the competition as described, however, if the competition is cancelled, no refunds will be issued.  There will be NO medical refunds given after January 3, 2014.  Pre-paid practice ice is not transferable.  Payments made by credit card will be refunded to the credit card.  Payments made by check will be refunded by check after the competition.  The online convenience fee and the paper entry administrative fee are non-refundable for any reason.
 
NSF Policy:  Persons using checks without sufficient funds will be charged an additional $30 fee per check.  All further payments must be made by cash, money order, or credit card.  Skaters will not be allowed to practice or compete until all such debts are satisfied.  Any contested credit card charge will incur a $30 fee and will be handled as a non-payment and the skater will not be allowed to practice or compete until all such debts are paid in full via cash or money order.
