2019-20 GOE and PCS Guidelines

When I posted about the new technical requirements communication earlier, I missed seeing that the 2019-20 GOE and PCS Guidelines have also been published. This communication replaces 2190 from last season.

As with the technical requirements, I’ll post a summary in the next few weeks. The most important changes to note for now are:

  • Three (3) Key Aspects instead of five (5).
  • New criteria for achieving +4 or +5.

 

New GOE scale video: What the judges will be looking for

The ISU has released a webinar that provides a great overview of how the new GOE scale will be applied. Previously, judges awarded a GOE from -3 to +3 for each element a team executed. Starting this season, judges will award GOEs from -5 to +5 in all disciplines.

An official communication containing more details is expected to be published soon. In the meantime, check out this 27-minute video.
