No late entries to the Championship Series or individual competitions will be accepted.

Step 3: Manage EMS Portal(s)

  • The EMS Skater and Coach Portals will be the primary hub of communication for all relevant competition information, guidelines and procedures!

  • Music upload and planned program content (PPC)

    • All skaters entering the 2020-21 Qualifying Season are required to upload their competition music and submit their planned program content at least one week prior to competition start date (see competition websites for specific dates). All music and PPC submissions must be made via the EMS Skater Portal. Follow these links for directions: music; PPC.

    • Any skater who does not upload their music or PPC by the set deadline is subject to a late fee of $25 for each.

    • Under no circumstances will skaters be allowed to turn in music or PPC on site.

      • Note: coaches cannot submit music or PPC through EMS on behalf of the skaters.

  • All skaters attending a qualifying event are required to list any attending coaches in the “My Coaches” within EMS. By listing a coach in this portal, you allow a coach to receive their event credential and access to view your event schedule, your music and planned program submission status.
