CPC Applied to Introduction to the Basics

What is CPC? CPC = “Cumulative Points Calculation” –CPC is the method that scores are calculated in figure skating competitions –Rules provide a “measurement” of figure skating achievement –Some competitions still scored with 6.0 (placements only) –Conversion to CPC is ongoing – goal for CPC used at all Jr Bronze + categories in Canada

CPC Language! BV: Base Value –The value assigned to each element executed in a program – related to the technical difficulty of the element GOE: Grade of Execution –The value assigned to the quality of execution of the element – regardless of the difficulty SOV: Scale of Values –The table of values that indicates all Base and GOE Values for every scoring element in figure skating in Canada

SOV Table: CPC Language!

TES: Technical Element Scores –Sum total of all base values and GOEs PCS: Program Component Scores –5 scores out of 10 to measure the artistic side of the sport: Skating Skills Transitions Performance Choreography Interpretation

CPC Language! Well Balanced Program –The rules that indicate what elements you are allowed to include in a program –Elements executed that violate these rules will receive no points –Example: 1) Maximum of seven jump elements. a) All single and double jumps permitted except double Axel. b) Must include at least one Axel type jump (waltz or single Axel). c) Maximum three combinations or sequences. Jump combinations may contain no more than two jumps. d) Maximum three different jumps repeated. No jump included more than twice and if a jump is repeated it must be in combination or sequence.

CPC Language! Levels of Difficulty –For “non-jump” elements, a level of difficulty indicates the increasing difficulty within an element group –Up to Four levels are assigned to these elements – with increasing base values –Levels are introduced starting at Junior Silver levels Level Features –Level features are those technical details that, when demonstrated, will increase the assigned level of difficulty for the element –Features are announced and communicated annual (first through ISU, then through Members’ Only)

ISU Communication: CPC Language!

“Cheated” Jumps? Example: Double Lutz attempt < 1/4 turn cheat “2Lz”  1/4 turn cheat “under-rotated” “2Lz<“ Base value = 3Lz GOE “--” Clean landing “2Lz” Base value = 2Lz GOE “0” or “+” Base value = 70% 2Lz GOE “--”  1/2 turn cheat “downgraded” “2Lz<<“ Base value = 1Lz GOE “--”

Doing the Math!! TES = Add up the points for the elements and the GOEs to get the technical score!

Doing the Math!! PCS = Multiply each component score by a factor and add together!

DEDUCTIONS Deductions applied to total program component score: –falls: -0.5 for every fall with extra deductions for falls that cause interruptions to the program –time violation: -1.0 for every 5 seconds –music violation: -1.0 for vocal music –illegal element: - 2.0 for each illegal element –costume/prop violation: -1.0 per violation

Doing the Math!! Total Score: TES + PCS – DED = TSS

Doing the Math!! Total Score: TES + PCS – DED = TSS

Connecting the dots… to:

CPC ↔ STARSkate Language: GOE +3 +2 +1 Excellent/Outstanding Very Good Good 0Satisfactory Mediocre or Satisfactory with minor error -2 -3 Poor Very Poor Excellent Good Satisfactory Needs Improvement

CPC ↔ STARSkate Language: PCS Skating Skills SURENESS OF SKATING SKILLS (with SPEED)** Transitions CONNECTING STEPS/ FIELD MOVES (starting at Sr Br) Performance / Execution CARRIAGE/ LINE/ FORM** Choreography USE OF ICE & PROGRAM COMPOSITION Interpretation USE OF MUSIC

Current STARSkate Program Free Skating Competitions Traditional competitions – CPC scoring is identical in principle to competitive stream Ice Dance Competitions Traditional competitions – CPC scoring is identical in principle to competitive stream Skating Skills Competitions Unique to Canada – unique calculation rules Interpretive Competitions Unique to Canada – unique calculation rules

Skating Skills CPC Only used for Creative Skill Exercise at this point Special SOV table for required elements Different PCS factors

Interpretive CPC No technical elements → No TES Different PCS factors

Alternate Delivery Alternate delivery methods are available –Allow for fewer officials than in the competitive stream –Some events have a “technical judge” instead of a “technical panel” –Roles and responsibilities can be redistributed to allow for “job-sharing”
