NISA freestyle levels??
« on: May 10, 2020, 12:22:43 pm »
Hi everyone!
I am currently living abroad but Ill be moving back to the UK for uni (hopefully)...
I currently skate through the ISI board and am training at around freestyle 2-4 level (haven't been tested in a long time).

I've been wanting to find out what level I would probably be equivalent to in the UK (ik ill have to be tested again I'm just curious), however, I'm not able to find the element requirements for the NISA judged freestyle levels anywhere??? I've only been able to find up to skate Uk star where I would be able to pass gold.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here's a link for field moves:http://www.bracknell-ice-skating-club.co.uk/SkatingInfo/5832_Nisa_Field_Moves%20final%20copy.pdf
It may be a little ouf of date but will give you an idea

No figures.  Am I right in saying ISI still do figures?  I remember listening to Alison Manley's podcast a few years ago and she was doing figures in ISI.
Good luck and hope you find a good (and open) rink wherever you are going to study.  I'd being some skates with wheels as well, just in case.
Others may know more but I would have thought if you have test passes from a reocgnised body then you should be able to start at the right level for you rather than from scratch.

When you move over here (and rinks are open), contact British Ice Skating https://www.iceskating.org.uk/ and they'll soon tell you what equivalent level you have.  :)  Email is the best way to contact them.  Return phone calls are promised but rarely happen.  By email, however, they are very helpful indeed, provided you're patient.  They don't have a massive staff.  (Think 3 people and a cat and you're not far off!)
Returned to the ice in Sept 2017 after a major leg injury in 1999. Skating in Risport Royal Pro and MK Gold Star. Still scary after all these years...

Good luck with everything.  Indoor exercise is still shut here in the UK, with no specific timetable for reopening.  I really would look into getting a pair of skates with wheels mounted on them so you can at least skate outdoors, which is allowed.
