A Communication from ISA in regard to Adult international competitors:-
RE: All State Association Adult members seeking ISA confirmation to compete for all international figure skating competitions in 2017.
ISA is aware that the ISU International Adult Figure Skating Competition 2017 announcement for Oberstdorf states, A Competitor must be an individual member of an ISU Member, or a member of a club which is itself a member of an ISU Member. Competitors do not require any Clearance Certificate or any other permission from their ISU Member for entering the Competition.
However, ISA Rule 802 states the following:
‘Any person seeking nomination as an Australian competitor in any international event, shall submit a request to the relevant State association, that nomination as an Australian competitor be forwarded by the Association’.
The State Association is then to send the completed form direct to Robi Chalmers, ISA Chair for Sport Development. ISA will send confirmation to the State Secretary to communicate with all competitors listed. If there are any issues, the skater will be contacted directly.
Forms should be returned as soon as possible in order to complete the approval process in a timely manner.
