Minimum TES for 2015 Euros/Four Continents/Worlds/Junior Worlds

11. ISU Figure Skating Championships – Minimum Total Technical Scores season 2014/15
Taking into account the expected number of entries into the Short Program/Short Dance at the ISU Figure Skating Championships for the season 2014/15 and the related time schedule, the reasonable maximum officiating time for the Officials, limits in the number of participants and related workload an Organizing Committee can be expected to handle physically and financially as well as implications with commercial partners, the Council concluded that the Minimum Total Technical Scores as per the 2014 Special Regulations, Rule 378, paragraph 3 must be adjusted for all ISU Figure Skating Championships in order to reduce the number of entries to the appropriate level.

- MEN 25.00; 45.00 (SP; FS)
- LADIES 20.00; 36.00
- PAIR SKATING 20.00; 36.00

- LADIES 27.00; 47.00
- PAIR SKATING 25.00; 43.00
- ICE DANCE 29.00; 39.00

ETA, ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships 2015 (sorry, I thought I had included these earlier):
- MEN 20.00; 42.00
- LADIES 20.00; 35.00
- PAIR SKATING 20.00; 30.00
- ICE DANCE 18.00; 28.00


The required minimum Total Technical Score for the Short Program/Short Dance and the Free Skating/Free Dance segment to participate in the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships can only be obtained in registered International Junior Competitions/Championships.

The Minimum Total Technical Score (not including Component Scores) is a Technical Score and must have been reached in an ISU recognized International Competition (as per Article 38, paragraph 7 of the ISU Constitution and Rule 107, paragraphs 1 to 9 of the ISU General Regulations) during the ongoing or immediately preceding season in both segments, Short Program/Short Dance and Free Skating/Free Dance (See ISU Special Regulations Single & Pair Skating Ice Dance 2014, Rule 378, paragraph 3).
While the Minimum Total Technical Score must be reached separately in each segment (not a total of the two segments), the Minimum Total Technical Score for each segment may be reached at different competitions.

The Council also decided that the Minimum Technical Score must be reached 21 (twenty-one) days before the first day (first official practice day) of the Championships concerned (same as entry deadline).

The Council agreed that if it became evident that the number of entries based on the Minimum Total Technical Scores listed above would be significantly higher or lower than expected, the ISU Council reserves the right to subsequently slightly re-adjust the Minimum Total Technical Scores in order to achieve the above-mentioned objective.
