Interested in becoming a figure skating judge?
No skating experience is necessary. From the Trial Judge Kit:
"Judges are not required to have any minimum skating background; however, those who have reached certain levels in tests or competitions may be able to progress through their appointments more quickly.
Individuals who are new to the sport must be willing to put in the hours necessary to acquire technical knowledge, from studying texts and attending judges schools to skating themselves (preferably with quality instruction)"
