Schedule

Registration has closed and almost 500 skaters will be competing!

The schedule will be published as soon as it is available from the referees. We don’t have a specific date, but probably early July. The competition will start on Tuesday, August 2 with practice ice on August 1. We may add practice ice on July 31 if there is high demand.

Please have patience. We know you need to make travel arrangements. The referees are volunteers, like us, and it will take them time to create a schedule for 500 skaters performing 1,000 programs.

When You Arrive

AdventHealth Center Ice has a large parking area. Please park at the rear of the building if the front parking lot is full (very likely!)

Do not go to the main entrance of the rink. The competition entrance is on the east side of the building facing the traffic circle.

Registration Desk

First stop is the registration desk where you will get your credentials and any pre-purchased tickets and merchandise. The registration desk will open at least 1½ hours before the start of competition and will remain open throughout the competition and practice ice hours.

Team Managers need to register their team at the registration desk. Music must be submitted online before the close of entries and does not need to be provided at registration.

Events

AdventHealth Center Ice has five ice surfaces. Most events take place on Rink D with some events on Rink C.

Florida in August has frequent thunderstorms so it is not practical to move props around the outside of the building. This is not just a fun fact! It determines where the curtains need to be to be able to move props on and off the ice.

The curtain is to the judges’ right on Rink C and to their left on Rink D. The spotlights on Rink C will be oriented to match the layout of Rink D with the curtain on the performers right. In other words, spotlight practice on Rink C will use the same configuration as the performances on Rink D. Only competitive events that do not use spotlights will be held on Rink C.

More details will follow when the schedule is available. For now, please assume all interpretive events, mini production events, and mini production practice ice will be on Rink C, with the curtain on the performer’s left as they face the judges. All other competitive events will be on Rink D, with the curtain on the performer’s right as they face the judges.

Practice Ice

Practice Ice will be available Monday through Saturday and can be purchased during registration. Pre-paid practice ice sessions are limited to two sessions per program, with a maximum of one spotlight practice.

Any remaining practice ice sessions will be sold on EntryEeze on a first-come, first-serve basis and some may be available at the practice ice desk during the competition.

Props for Interpretive Events:

Props for interpretive events must be brought into the monitored room, using nothing larger than a carry-on luggage suitcase with a measurement of 45 linear inches (length + width + height) prior to listening to the music for the first time. Competitors whose container exceeds these dimensions will be provided a correctly sized box. Skates may be brought in separately.
