All athletes MUST sign the Badger State Games Athlete Waiver online during registration

NSF/Contested credit card 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 pain in full via cash or money order.

**BSG will no longer accept paper forms for registration.  If credit card payment is not an option for you, please go through the entire registration process through to the payment screen.  
You can then log out and mail a check to BSG and the commissioner will finalize your registration upon receipt of the payment.

Registration Guidelines:

All solo athletes and teams must register via Entreeze

During online registration, all solo athletes must complete the individual entry and sign the accompanying waiver (parent/guardian must digitally accept if athlete is under 18).  

For teams, there must be one point of contact to do the registration and must provide the names, information, and accurate e-mail address for each athlete on the team.  Each athlete will receive an individual e-mail instructing them to log in to Entryeeze to sign the athlete waiver.

Participants will use their age as of the registration deadline date unless otherwise specified in the rules.

Entries may be limited at the discretion of Badger State Games.  Entries will be prioritized in the order they are received.

PRACTICE ICE:

Solos / Duets: Pre-purchase of practice ice is available for $10 per 15 minute session with a limit of 2 sessions being prepurchased.  Skaters will be able to reserve their pre-purchased practice ice sessions after the competition schedule is posted and will have first choice of all practice ice sessions.Practice ice sessions are not refundable after registration closes. 

A few days after pre-purchased ice reservations are opened, skaters will have the option to purchase additional ice sessions for $15 for 15 minutes, which can be immediately reserved. 

If there are any spots still available, additional ice sessions can be purchased on-site for $20 for 15-minutes. 

*NOTE* If fewer than 5 skaters are in an outlier (very early or very late) practice ice session and there are openings in a different time slot (on the same morning/evening), the Commissioner reserves the right to cancel the outlier session and move the skaters into other time slots.  You will be notified of the change via email to the registration email and to the primary coach on file.  No refunds will be offered if you miss your session. 

Practice ice will be held at the Mosinee Rec Center in the early mornings (before competition day starts) and late evenings (after competition day ends).  No refunds will be offered if available sessions aren’t convenient with your competition time.  No props or music is allowed on practice ice sessions. 

Teams: Pre-purchase of ONE exclusive practice ice session is available during registration for $50 for a 10-minute session.  Props are allowed on exclusive ice and someone will be available to play your music during your exclusive session.  If there is high demand for exclusive ice sessions, the Commissioner has the right to limit the total number of sessions.  If this limit occurs, the Commissioner will assign the sessions based on a first purchased order and will notify the other teams of the removal of their exclusive session.  A full refund of the practice ice fee will be given for any sessions cancelled by the Commissioner.  The Commissioner will schedule the exclusive sessions after the competition schedule is prepared – synchro teams will have their exclusive session Saturday afternoon immediately before the synchro competition.  Showcase teams will have their session late Saturday night (after synchro) or early Sunday morning.

FACILITIES: The competition will be held at the Mosinee Recreation Center located at 709 – 11th Street; Mosinee, WI 54455.  Rink size is 84’ x 200’.  Full service concessions (including full meals) will be available beginning approximately 30 minutes prior to the event start each day until after the last event each day.  Rink temperature is cool – dress warm. 

If, at any time, a competitor has any concern regarding their safety due to ice conditions or debris on the ice from a prior competitor, the skater should ask the rink monitor to contact the Chief Referee PRIOR to skating.  No residue may remain on the ice after the program; any penalty for residue left on the ice is up to the discretion of the event referee and could result in disqualification from the event.

for any skater that doesn’t affiliate themselves with a club when registering for their events.  No skater will be added to a club or be allowed to CHANGE clubs after registration closes.  Team trophies will be award to the top three teams approximately 1 hour after the last solo event is skated for the competition (likely late afternoon on Sunday).  Each club should have a representative present to accept their trophy. 

OFFICIAL NOTICES: An official bulletin board will be maintained rink side.  It’s the responsibility of each competitor, parent, and coach to check the bulletin board frequently for any schedule changes and/or additional information.  Skaters are required to arrive at least 45-minutes prior to the scheduled time of their event.  If the competition runs early and you miss your event, no refunds will be offered.  COME EARLY!  A tentative schedule of events will be posted prior to the competition. 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: If you have questions, please contact Melanie at BSGFigureSkating@gmail.com or call/text to 715-581-2741. If calling or texting, please be sure to include your skater’s name (include spelling) and outline your question.  All efforts will be made to get you a response as quickly as possible.  However, please keep in mind that the BSG figure skating team are volunteers that also hold full time jobs and have families.  Please be patient when waiting for a response.  Also please be aware that emails will receive faster responses than voicemails since we can return emails in the wee hours of the morning.  

My skater has a on Thursday… can you make sure my skater’s event is held on the weekend? No.  We can’t entertain any special requests for scheduling.  Please bear in mind that this event has hundreds of athletes participating and the schedule is timed out to the minute.  No such requests will be acknowledged or accommodated. 

When can I pick out my practice ice sessions? We won’t know until only a couple of days ahead of time.  When the schedule is made available online, a mass email will be sent out to all athletes and coaches letting them know the schedule is posted and what date practice ice reservations will be opened (2-3 days later).  This allows everyone an opportunity to review their schedule and discuss timing with their coach before ice selection is opened. 

What is all the practice ice sessions are booked for the morning/night I need before I get an opportunity to get online to reserve? No worries!  We monitor the practice ice sessions very closely and will open up additional sessions if there aren’t any available slots remaining.  However, if you’re shooting for a 7:00am session on Friday morning, you better hurry to get it before it’s gone… any other Friday morning sessions will be earlier and earlier in the morning! 

Can I get my skater’s schedule ahead of time so I can ask for time off of work? No.  The schedule will be made available and posted online as quickly as possible after registration closes.  BSG staff don’t have access to the schedule until after it’s finalized by the Chief Referee.  We’ll do our best to post it as early as possible.   

2020 Badger State Games Figure Skating Rules        

MUSIC Competition music for all events that require music must be submitted electronically via the online registration system by the music deadline of January 5, 2020 at 11:59pm.  Submission of music after the deadline will result in a late submission penalty of $25 that must be paid prior to the competition.  If music remains missing after January 10, 2020, the Commissioner reserves the right to increase the late submission penalty to $50 that must be paid prior to competition OR cancel the skater from that event with no refund. 

After you’ve paid for your events during registration, the system will prompt you to upload your music for each event that requires music.  If your music isn’t available at that time, you can log out of your account and return later to upload your music by going to the “competition” tab and then selecting “my music”. 

If you’re unable to upload your own music, please consult with your coach prior to contacting BSG for assistance.  If your coach has a “multi-competition” global account through Entryeeze, your coach can manage and upload the music for their skaters.  If your coach doesn’t have the global account, you may also provide your coach with your login information so they can upload the music on your behalf. 

Your music must meet the following criteria.  If you have questions about what format you have, please contact your coach and get a new version of your music that meets the criteria listed below. 

ALL TIMES ARE +/- 10 SECONDS UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED. 

Music criteria: 

 File format:  MP3  Bit Rate:  192 kbps or higher  Sample Rate:  44,100 kHz  Leaders and trailers may not exceed two (2) seconds.  (This is the silence or ‘dead space’ before and after the actual start and end of the program music.)  We prefer that there be NO leaders or trailers at all. 

If your music file doesn’t meet the criteria, we’ll email you to request that you fix your music file and re-upload. 

Athletes must also bring a copy of their competition music on USB flashdrive as a backup in case of technical difficulties.  You may have more than one file on the flashdrive, but the files should be organized by number.  In the event your backup is used during competition, you must be able to tell the music panel exactly what file NUMBER is yours on the flash drive.  These backups won’t be collected at registration, but should be rink side during competition events.  If your backup drive is used during competition, you may retrieve your drive at the registration desk following each event.  Every reasonable care will be taken, but the hosting club can’t be responsible for music left at the end of the competition.  Drives remaining on-site after the conclusion of the competition will be discarded.  Music downloaded for the competition will be deleted after the event is complete.

COACHES 

VERIFICATION: The local organizing committee will attempt to verify all compliance requirements prior to the competition and will notify you via email if we’re unable to do so.  Please monitor your email carefully to allow yourself adequate time to resolve any credentialing issues prior to competition. 

The registration desk will have a list of compliant coaches who are cleared for a credential at the competition.  Coaches will need to check in at the event registration desk and show a government issued photo I.D. to receive a credential. 

If a coach can’t provide a photo I.D., isn’t on the verified list, or can’t produce the necessary document to show compliance, s/he will not be allowed a credential – NO EXCEPTIONS.  We strongly urge all coaches to have their cards with them.  Non-credentialed coaches will not be permitted in the designated coaching areas at rink side during events (including practice sessions).  Coaches will also not be able to ‘yell over the boards’ to get around this rule.  Coaching at U.S. Figure Skating events without compliance is an ethics violation which is reported to U.S. Figure Skating and PSA. 

Any coach found falsifying documents or attempting to utilize someone else’s credentials to gain access to coach areas will be removed from the competition for the remainder of the event and will be banned from the Badger State Games for the following year.  A subsequent second offense will result in permanent ban from Badger State Games.  In addition, the coach’s actions will be reported to U.S. Figure Skating and PSA.

Coaching U.S. Figure Skating athletes:  • Current member in good standing with U.S. Figure Skating • Completed background check (green light status)  • Completed SafeSport Training* • Continuing Education Requirements (CERs) for the 2018-19 Competition Season  • Proof of current general liability insurance with limits of $1 million per occurrence/$5 million aggregate.
