Dear Rebekah,

Congratulations on passing the Gold/Senior Pair Test!

The U.S. Figure Skating test structure is the backbone of participation in figure skating, and you should feel extremely proud of this accomplishment. Each U.S. Figure Skating test that you have passed is a permanent achievement that goes on your U.S. Figure Skating record. 

Passing your senior test means that you have achieved the highest accomplishment in testing, and you have now earned the title "U.S. Figure Skating gold medalist." You will carry this title forever. You can put it on a coaching resume, your college application, and even job resumes. You should use it with pride. 

Approximately 20 members of U.S. Figure Skating pass the Senior Pairs test each year, representing less than 1% of our full membership. In approximately 6-8 weeks you will be receiving a gold certificate, a gold lapel pin and a congratulatory letter recognizing your accomplishment. In addition, you are now eligible to purchase our Gold Test jacket available through the U.S. Figure Skating online store.

Please take a survey and answer some brief questions about your skating. The information you provide is anonymous and confidential. If you recently passed more than one test, be sure to fill out the survey for each one. Each test level in every discipline requires different amounts of practice, coaching, and ice time. Your feedback about what it took to get to this level is extremely valuable in developing the future of our sport. By answering this survey you will help U.S. Figure Skating get to know our athletes better and develop tools and programs in the future to help athletes like you get the most out of our sport.

As a thank you for completing the survey, and in recognition of your accomplishment, you will receive a coupon code for 40% off of a gold test jacket in U.S. Figure Skating's online store once you finish the survey.

Congratulations again on passing your test, and best wishes for a bright and long future with U.S. Figure Skating.
