Competitions / Tests

  • $20 for each additional event/practice ice session
    • Event examples: freeskate, artistic, compulsories, spins
    • Practice ice sessions up to 30 minutes
    • Out-of-town competitions/tests will have other fees (hotel, transportation, food, etc.) Total travel expenses are divided equally among families participating at the competition

Competitive skaters are required to skate a minimum of 3 days a week with at least two lessons a week the month going into competition. An emailed invoice with the expenses will be sent after the competition / test session

If single student goes to competition, the student will cover 80-percent of expenses

For out-of-state competitions and events, a 50-percent deposit of Coach Jess’ estimated expenses must be paid at time of flight booking or two months prior to departure, whichever happens sooner.


Flights / Car Rental: the cost of the flight will be divided amongst all the participating students and Coach Jess if there are only two students. If there are three students of three separate families attending the event, those students will split the cost of the flight.

Coach Jess will cover the cost of the car rental (if acquired), not including gas, taxes, and insurance. The latter will be divided among students.

Payment deadlines for competitions / testing:

  • Local events (in Austin) – due one week post-event or by the next lesson, whichever comes first
  • Out-of-town events – due two weeks post-event
  • Out-of-state events – in addition to the out-of-town event requirements above, a 50 percent deposit of my estimated expenses must be paid two months prior to departure or at the time of the flight booking, whichever occurs first (see Flights / Car Rental)
