Skate UK Passport to Competitive Skating
The Skate UK Star Registration Document is a booklet that guides you through the Bronze, silver and Gold stages of the Skate UK Star program. Comes complete with a bag to carry your skates.
Upon completion of the Gold Level in Skate UK Star skaters may wish to continue their skating development by entering the NISA National Tests. Your NISA Licensed Coach will be able to talk to you more about what this entails.
When you are ready to take the National Tests you will need to become a NISA member (you will also need to become a NISA member if you want to enter any UK competitions) which you can do by downloading the application form from the NISA members section. Here you will also find the application form for applying for tests, which can be sent in at the same time as you apply for membership.
Remember when you apply for your first level of National Tests to include your Registration Document, signed by your NISA Licensed Coach, to show you have passed the Gold level of Skate UK Star. This will be returned to you as soon as it has been checked by the NISA office.
