Criteria for Canadian Records
With the inception of the CPC judging system we are now able to track performances over seasons and mark the outstanding achievements of our athletes in real measurable terms. The following outlines the process for marking these high scores.
High scores are tracked in the three disciplines of Singles, Pairs and Ice Dance. Due to the significant changes from previous seasons in well balanced program criteria, principles of calculation and the scale of values, a similar set of records has no not yet been established for Synchronized Skating. The scores in Synchronized are not yet statistically comparable from season to season.
A Canadian record is the Total Competition Score for a skater or team in one competition. Only the combined total of all segments in one competition will be considered. A Canadian Record can be set at any of the following competitions:
- Olympic Winter Games
- ISU Championships
- ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating or Final
- ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating or Final
- Senior or Junior International Competition assigned by Skate Canada
- Canadian Championships
- Canada Winter Games
- Skate Canada Challenge
The following competitions do not count towards a Canadian record:
- Domestic Invitational Competitions
- Novice / Pre-Novice International Competitions
- Senior or Junior International Competitions assigned by Sections
- Sectional Championships
The Canadian Records list shall be maintained by the Skate Canada national office. It is the responsibility of each section to report to Skate Canada when a record has been set at their event. The section must inform the Office in a timely manner and provide the following information:
- Name of the skater(s)
- Date of the record
- Category results detailing the total segment scores and the total competition score for the skater
- Skater Detail Sheets by Official showing all GOE and Program Component Scores awarded for each segment forming the total score
New high scores should be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible after the competition in question.
