Typically at this time of year, the ISU publishes a new Communication containing Well Balanced Program Requirements for the upcoming season. According to the recently published Decisions of Council in Communication 2312:
Synchronized Skating: The requirements for the Well Balanced Short and Free Programs for all categories will not be changed.
In other words, the required and optional Elements in Short and Free Programs will be the same as last season. The Communication goes on to say that some changes have been proposed for the Scale of Values, Levels, and GOE for all disciplines. These will be communicated at a later date.
Communication 2312 also discusses:
- The postponement of the 2020 ISU Congress to Spring 2021
- Dates and locations for synchro Challenger Series events
