Bid package for the 2015, 8th Annual National Theatre on Ice Competition.
Dates proposed for Nationals –end of June to first part of July 2015.
This letter and bid package is meant to streamline the application process now that multiple clubs
have expressed interest in hosting this exciting competition. Please when bidding- know that you
will be bidding for only the National Competition. We foresee splitting the competition with
CE practice and competition on one day and the FS practice and competition on anotherdepending on the number of teams that enter.
It is imperative that each club submitting a bid be familiar with the current guidelines for Theatre on
Ice. This document is available on the US Figure Skating web site at:
http://www.usfigureskating.org/Programs.asp?id=49. These guidelines are for 2013-14, but serve as a
basis for understanding the discipline. They might change slightly for 2015. The upcoming season
rules will be posted by the middle of September.
Anticipated entries in the seven divisions for Nationals, (open, preliminary, novice, open, junior,
senior and adult) range from 50-55 teams with a total number of skaters around 1000.
Sincerely,
Judy Edmunds
National Vice Chair, Theater on Ice
Theatrical Skating Committee

Following are a number of points to consider in your bid presentation.
1. There is no grant for hosting this competition. All interested clubs should be prepared to make
this competition a success without assistance. The Theatrical Skating Committee will make every
effort to give clubs ideas on how to maximize profit.
2. Entry fees for all teams in the past have included one official practice ice for each event entered,
but since the international is not going to be part of this competition and in all fairness for the LOC
to be able to make money, it has been suggested that a base fee plus so much per skater be charged.
Example for many of the Synchro competitions $200 per team plus $21 per skater and if doing CE
and FS, then $250 per team and $21 per skater. Practice ice may be sold to teams (in 10 or 15minute increments). The fees for the 2012 National Competition will be set by the Local Organizing
Committee, with approval by the National Vice Chair for Theatre On Ice.
3. All competition registration entries will be taken by and processed through U.S. Figure Skating
Headquarters. Entry fees will be sent to the LOC within two weeks of the close of entries. The LOC
will work directly with U.S. Figure Skating’s Director of Skating Programs on the entry process.
4. All competitors, one chaperone and two designated U.S. Figure Skating member coaches shall
receive free credentials. All others should buy tickets (including any additional coaches in
attendance).
5. Budget for 15 Judges, 5 Referees, 2 Accountants, 2 Official Announcer’s, 1 Official
Music person and one Official Ice Technician. Expenses include rooms, meals and
transportation. Officials’ dinners and gifts are optional, and should only be given if they
are donated. Also, budget for site inspection by Chief Referee (air, hotel, food – (2 nightsdepending on location of site inspection)
6. The chief referee will be determined by the Theatrical Skating Committee, and the
officials (including assistant referees, judges, announcer, and music person) will be
selected by the chief referee with input from the LOC. Expect judges from all three
sections at the level of National or higher rank. Foreign Officials are responsible for their
own transportation but LOC is responsible for room and meal expenses. Officials are
permitted to arrive the day prior to Official Practice and to depart the day after the competition.
Plan on this in the budget
One rink surface, with seating of 1300 or more on one side of the arena for theater style
seating must be available for the five full days of the competition – no exceptions.
A second rink surface for practice would be a plus.
7. A curtain is optional. If there is a curtain, must be from blue line to blue line and be 5 feet
from the barrier. The curtain is the responsibility of the LOC. (refer to TOI Guidelines for
further information regarding curtain size). Location of the curtain must be stated in the
announcement to the teams.
It needs to be stated in the announcement whether or not there is going to be a curtain.
8. All judging will be closed judging for the National Competition
Referee will determine the seating location for the judges and needs to be in the
announcement to the teams. You will need to include a map of the arena and indicate where
judges will be seated.
9. Medical Coverage during Official Practice and during Competition is required.
10. Photos/Video: As the LOC, you will be responsible for providing action, group and awards
photos of the skaters for purchase.

a) In addition, action photos, group photos, awards photos must be supplied to U.S. Figure
Skating at no charge for archival purposes and use on icenetwork.com. The images must be
digital and high resolution and be delivered immediately following the day’s events and
conclusion of the competition.
b) As the LOC, you will also be responsible for hiring an event videographer. U.S. Figure
Skating can work directly with you to provide these services or you may hire a vendor of
your choice. If you hire a videographer directly, in addition to selling videos to competitors,
the videographer must also provide, at no cost, a full set of competition videos to U.S.
Figure Skating, preferably on a hard drive that will be provided, within seven days of the
conclusion of the competition.
