Skate KC News & Updates

March 12, 2015

We have been notified of several schedule changes at the Independence Events Center that will effect our competition schedule.  Below is an outline of the changes. These changes will be updated in EntryEeze by midnight tonight.

 

EVENT CHANGES

  • All events on Thursday will be held on the Arena rink. 
  • All Wednesday and Thursday morning practices will be moved to the Arena.  
  • Thursday evening practices will remain on the Community rink.
  • Some events in the Arena rink on Saturday and Sunday have been moved up 1 hour earlier.  
  • Freeskate 1 Free Skate events originally scheduled on the Community rink have been moved to the Arena.


PRACTICE ICE

We are adding additional practice ice sessions on Thursday afternoon on the Community rink, and will be canceling the 10pm session.    

 

Due to these changes, we are delaying the purchase of additional practice ice until 7am Saturday morning.

 

MUSIC

We are asking that ALL skaters upload their music for the competition.  To do this, please login to your account in EntryEeze and select the "Music Upload" under the Competition tab.  Music must be in MP3 format - more detailed instructions can be found on the Kansas City FSC website.  

 

You will still need to bring a CD to the competition!  This is for use on practice ice and as a backup if there are problems with your music during the competition.

 

Thank you for patience and understanding as we make these adjustments.

 

March 10, 2015

Additional morning practice sessions have been added Thursday-Saturday! We will continue to monitor and add sessions where possible.

 

We have also finalized the test session options.  March 25 will beall levels of Moves in the Field and Free Skate, plus low level dances (Pre-Silver and below).  

 

On March 28, we will have a very small high level dance test session (Silver and above).  Please note, the 3/28 tests will NOT have a pre-test warm-up session, as we are very limited on time.  There will be the standard 5-minute warmup and then the tests. This will be a first-come, first-serve basis, so once it's full, we will not be able to accommodate additional tests.

 

March 5, 2015

The Skate KC schedule is now ready!  Beginning tomorrow at 7am, those that pre-purchased practice ice will begin the selection process.  Practice ice may be purchased beginning 3/13 at 7am. 

 

Also, if you haven't done so already, please make sure you upload your music via EntryEeze.  All skaters need to do this by March 14.

 

February 25, 2015

A tentative schedule is now available!  Please note this is still subject to change.  A final schedule will be added to EntryEeze no later than March 6.

 

February 12, 2015

MUSIC UPDATE: We have now enabled uploading music through EntryEeze! Competition music for all events that require music must now be submitted electronically via the online registration system by the music deadline of March 14, at 11:59 pm.

 

After you have paid for your events, the system will prompt you to upload your music for each event that requires music. If your music is not available at that time, you can logout of your account and return later to upload your music by going to the “competition” tab and then selecting “my music”. 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.

 

Music Criteria:

  1. File Format: MP3 (the online system will automatically check this)
  2. Bit Rate: 192 kbps or higher (this will be checked by the music chairperson and they may request you upload a corrected file)
  3. Sample Rate: 44,100 kHz (this will be checked by the music chairperson and they may request you upload a corrected file)

Competitors must also bring a copy of their competition music on CD as a backup in case of technical difficulties and must be turned in at the registration desk at the time of check-in.

 

Only CDs (standard CD-R format only) will be accepted. CD-RWs will NOT be accepted due to compatibility issues. CDs must be clearly marked with the competitor’s name, event, and running time. CDs must only have one piece of music per CD. The official competition CD turned in at the Registration Desk is reserved for use during the event and may not be retrieved for Practice Ice use.

 

Please keep additional copies of your music readily available for both practice ice and rink side during competition events. Music may be picked up at the registration desk following each event. Every reasonable care will be taken, but the hosting club cannot be responsible for music left at the end of the competition.
