Kansas City Figure Skating Club is a member of the Mid-West Figure Skating Council (MWFSC) and is participating in the Mid-West Council Championship Series (MWCCS). Participating competitions are Heartland Winter Classic, Snowball Spectacular, Skate KC, Heart of America, Wichita Mid-Continent Classic, Pony Express Championships, and Line Creek Fall Fling.


Actual competitions will be dependent upon each hosting Club’s final decision to hold their event. Points will be awarded for Beginner through Adult level events (Free Skate, Showcase, Jumps, Spins, Dance, and Compulsory) along with Compete USA events (Basic Elements, Basic Program, and Basic Skills Showcase). This event is a standard U.S. Figure Skating Nonqualifying Competition – Skaters may enter one of two tracks.


The Comprehensive Track will include all events a skater enters (Free Skate, Dance, Showcase Events, Jumps, Spins, and Compulsory). The Free Skate Track will only include singles Free Skate events (Long Program for Intermediate – Senior). Skaters must indicate the track in which they wish to compete when they sign up. Track selection cannot be changed after registration.


Skaters competing in this Series will receive points for placement in each of the above events at the recognized competitions. At the end of the season, top point skaters will receive awards from MWFSC, and the club with the most skater-accumulated points will receive the Traveling Championship Trophy for that year. There is an annual $10 registration fee to enter the Championship Series, which can be paid at the first competition entered or by registering on the Council website at www.MWFSC.net.



For competitions held after December 1, singles athletes may register based their highest test passed as of the entry deadline OR the level of their paid EMS Series Application for the National Qualifying Series (NQS) or National Excel Series (Excel) which will establish the athlete’s competitive level (“floor”) deadline. 


For example, if an athlete passed their junior free skate test in November and competed in the 2022-23 NQS as a Novice from July - September, they may register for either novice or junior in excel or well-balanced events. The novice level will remain their competitive floor until they complete an EMS Series Application at the junior level or higher for NQS or Excel.

Eligibility Notes: 

  1. The singles free skate test levels will remain as a minimum requirement to compete. 

  2. Athletes may not skate down in any event. 

  3. This update does NOT apply to Adult, Showcase and Solo Dance. 

If an athlete, coach, parent and/or guardian needs assistance with confirming their eligibility, email events@usfigureskating.org
