There will be eight (8) skated Figures per day over both days period for a total of sixteen (16) Figures. To be eligible for the World Figure Title, Second or Third prizes, all Figures must be performed on the specified foot and completed for each competition day. If a tie in a prize position occurs, the tied skaters will skate a tie-break Figure (see Ranking).

Venue:
Rink - To be determined
Ice Color - Black Ice
Rink Size - 100 feet x 200 feet (30.5 m x 61 m)
Patch Size - 18 feet x 100 feet (5.5 m x 30.5 m)

Competition Allocated Ice:
Each competitor will have a patch of the ice the width of the rink to layout the Figures in each round. The skaters will execute a specified number of figures in each round (two rounds total per day) on his or her allocated patch in an allotted time. All figures will be made of six tracings.

Circle Sizes:

Figure Eight circle sizes are to be a max. of 18 feet (5.5 m).

Championship Referee:

There is one Chief Referee for the World Figure Championship. The Chief Referee and assistants will carefully observe the competitors on the ice. The Chief Referee will take penalties for falls, placing a foot down, under or oversized Figures, insufficient number of tracings, and exceeding maximum skating time. If a competitor finishes at least five of the six tracings, the figure will be judged. All skaters are required to communicate immediately with the Chief Referee after completing a Figure that requires a necessary penalty. A whistle will be blown to inform the competitors of the starting of the clock at the beginning of each Figure.


Judging:
The judging panel will solely judge the Figures left on the ice by the skaters. After a flight has completed its figures and leaves the ice, the judging panel will enter onto the ice to rank each Figure pattern, unaware of whom skated a particular Figure. The judges will rank each Figure from first through eighth (Figure Rank). The judges will only know the patch letter. The patch ice will be marked for the judges by the following eight letters:
· K through R
Judges will take into account all the necessary factors of a great Figure in this World Figure Championship including: clean edges, turns, tracings, centers and alignment of all circles.
There will be two panels of five judges. The judges will rotate between the Ladies’ and Men’s competition; so each championship flight will have two completely different panels of judges on each day of competition.
Judges and Skaters should be striving to deliver good form (their personal best) and be role models of sportsmanship throughout the Championship.

Ranking:

The accountants will sum the Figure Ranking for each skater. The lowest sum obtains the highest Championship Rank (similar to stroke play in golf). If a tie occurs after the first day the ranking of the Change Loop breaks the tie. If a tie occurs on the Championship day between the World Ranking of 4th -15th the Paragraph Loop ranking breaks the tie. If a tie occurs in the first three positions on the Championship day, the tied skaters resume competition and skate the Paragraph Loop to break the tie. During a World Championship Medal tiebreak both panels will judge the tracings on the ice of the Paragraph Loop after the skaters leave the ice.


World Championship Ranking:
Once the final World Figure Championship rankings are posted, all (16) Ladies’ & Men’s World Figure Championship competitors will obtain a World Figure Championship Ranking for that Championship year.

Skaters’ competitive and test histories qualify them to compete in the Championship and not one’s current blades. A skater may compete with whatever is comfortable, but cleaner edges and turns can usually be achieved on radii of hollow greater than 1 inch (25 mm). No heating mechanism or mechanical mechanism is allowed on at the Championship.

Competitor’s Dress Code:
Championship skaters should take the opportunity to wear athletically attractive attire. Wear something memorable so that the photos appropriately highlight the competition. This way together we create a visually memorable history for this World Figure Championship.
