New Proficiency Example Videos for the Short Program Contact Material Sections

As of September 2019, the Short Program now contains TWO contact material sections, one vertical and one horizontal. Now, there is a supplemental “performance example” video to illustrate the levels of proficiency of each. All judges should become very familiar with this video. Coaches, too, will certainly want to use this video, as well.

The new proficiency example videos can be found on the WBTF Short Program page in the “Performance Examples (Role Models) and Scales” section of our Professional Resources. Click on “Log in as a guest” to access the resource.
