Any non-qualifying competition that has already submitted their sanction may follow the previously posted guidelines and offer dramatic and light entertainment categories.
Non-qualifying competitions hosting Showcase events that have not yet applied for a sanction should utilize the new event categories; both the standard nonqualifying announcement and the event listing in EMS are being updated to include those events.
Referees may combine the above 4 events due to limited entries; additionally, multiple levels can be combined.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, National Showcase 2021 will be an open-entry event; skaters do not need to qualify. Consequently, a skater competing in a light entertainment event under the previous guidelines does not impact their ability to compete at National Showcase 2021.
