The purpose of the Excel Series is to offer young athletes an exciting and competitive environment that motivates them to focus on strengthening their program components and advancing their technical skills each season. This program also serves as an opportunity for grassroots skaters and coaches to familiarize themselves with the fundamentals of the International Judging System (IJS) through a phased approach which allows them to become proficient and confident with the IJS.
Excel is an opportunity for skaters who seek a different approach to performing from the highly competitive standard track. Available at nonqualifying competitions, including designated Excel Series competitions, Excel free skates consist of required elements different from the standard track to help boost skaters’ strengths and confidence.
