Technical Scores needed to qualify for ISU Championships

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

Technical Scores needed to qualify for ISU Championships

Post by Elizabeth » Fri Nov 08, 2019 12:27 pm

Information to keep in mind as the season progresses.

From: https://www.isu.org/inside-isu/isu-comm ... -2262/file

As found on page 4 & 5:
7. ISU Figure Skating Championships 2020 – Minimum Total Element Scores

The Council considered proposed new Minimum Total Element Scores necessary for participation in the 2020 ISU Figure Skating Championships and earned at competitions in the season 2018/19 and in the season 2019/20.

The Council determined that Skaters/couples participating in the ISU Championships 2020 must have reached the following Minimum Total Elements Scores (TES) in the short program/rhythm dance and free program/free dance:

For scores achieved in 2018-19 or 2019-20:

Worlds 2020
Men 34 / 64
Ladies 29 / 49
Pairs 27 / 44
*Dance 33 / 47 (was 31 / 45 last season)

Euros/4CC 2020
Men 28 / 46
Ladies 23 / 40
Pairs 25 / 42
*Dance 28 / 44 (was 26 / 42 last season)

Junior Worlds 2020
Men 23 / 42
Ladies 23 / 38
Pairs 23 / 34
*Dance 23 / 37 (was 22 / 35 last season)

(*For Ice Dance, based on ISU Communication No. 2256 announcing the Scale of Values for next season https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/thread ... st-5598046 and given the fact that a large number of Base Values (BV) and certain GOEs have been raised, this has been reflected in the Minimum TES for Ice Dance by increasing the values accordingly by making an average of the increase per level.)

The required Minimum Technical Elements Score for the Short Program/Rhythm Dance and the Free Skating/Free Dance to participate in Senior ISU Championships (ISU European Figure Skating Championships, ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships and ISU World Figure Skating Championships) can only be obtained in Senior International Competitions. Likewise, the required Minimum Technical Elements Score for the Short Program/Rhythm Dance and the Free Skating/Free Dance segment to participate in the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships can only be obtained in International Junior Competitions.

The Minimum Technical Elements Score (not including Component Scores) is a Technical Score and must have been reached in an ISU recognized International Competition (as per Article 39, paragraph 7 of the ISU Constitution and Rule 107, paragraphs 1 to 10 of the ISU General Regulations) during the ongoing or immediately preceding season in both segments, Short Program/Rhythm Dance and Free Skating/Free Dance (See ISU Special Regulations Single & Pair Skating Ice Dance, Rule 378, paragraph 3).

While the Minimum Technical Elements Score must be reached separately in each segment (not a total of the two segments), the Minimum Technical Elements Score for each segment may be reached at different competitions.

The Minimum Technical Elements Score must be reached 21 (twenty-one) days before the first day (first official practice day) of the Championships concerned (same as entry deadline).

If it would become evident that the number of entries based on the Minimum Technical Elements Scores listed above would be significantly higher or lower than expected, the ISU Council reserves the right to adjust the Minimum Technical Elements Scores in order to achieve the above-mentioned objective.

ISU Members will be informed latest 45 days prior to the entry deadline of the respective Championships if the announced required minimum Technical Score will be adjusted or will remain as announced. In case of the continental Championships the announcement for both European and Four Continents Championships will be made 45 days prior to the entry deadline of the earlier Championships, in this case the European Championships.
