2017 Test Sessions

Upcoming test session

April 5, 2018 Test Application (Application Deadline: March 16, 2018)

Important Information

The deadline for tests is approximately two to three weeks prior to the actual test date.There will be no refunds. If there are extenuating circumstances, the test will be forwarded to the next session. Please be aware that not passing a contingency test, (whether it be at the same session or at another club), will not be considered an extenuating circumstance.

At the discretion of the test chair, late applications may be submitted and accepted with the appropriate fees plus a $25.00 non refundable late fee.


Test Schedule

Please keep in mind that creating a test session schedule is very time consuming and many factors have to be taken into account. This process is much easier if all necessary information is included on the test form.


Remember that if you are not a home club member, you must have a permission letter from your club in order to test.

Test Day

Please be at the rink one hour before the scheduled test time. There is always the possibility of a last minute scratch, or the test running ahead of schedule.
