New Test Registration Process

Starting with the Jan 11, 2015 test session, the process for registering for USFS tests has changed.  Registration for tests is now through Entryeeze.  You can now sign up for any tests offered through an Oregon Skating Council member club at a single website.  The website is located on the OSC membership site.  Once on the site, click on the Non Members section and then browse for any of the upcoming OSC member club test sessions.  The tests are still run by the club test chairs but registration has been consolidated.  It will be easier to find out your exact test schedule since schedules will be available at the same website.
