Skater passes U.S. Figure Skating Association tests

Rylee Cassidy recently traveled to Augusta to test for the U.S. Figure Skating Association in both pre-preliminary free skate and pre-preliminary moves in the field.  Rylee passed both tests. 

The U.S. Figure Skating test structure is the backbone of participation in figure skating. Passing these tests is considered one of the first major accomplishments of being a figure skater.  Each official U.S. Figure Skating test a skater passes is a permanent achievement that goes on their U.S. Figure Skating record.
