Welcome to the support pages for the
Competition Program Planner.

Release 2012.00 for the 2011-12 season is available on the Downloads page.

The Program Planner offers skaters and coaches tools to aid planning a program, and then training that program to maximize the effectiveness of training time and to monitor competition performance.  The Program Planner includes the following tools:

Level CalculatorTM - A tool to determine the level of elements from descriptions of the elements. All level-based element types in singles, pairs and dance are supported.

Create a Program - A complete annotation and scoring tool for setting programs, comparing content, scoring programs and saving results.

Program Component Check Tool - Allows estimating Program Component scores from skill level in the component criteria.

Scoring Analysis - Provides tabular and graphical trending analysis of programs using scoring of practice run-throughs or competition results.

SkatePedia - A series of tutorial topics about the International Judging System and creating programs for competition.

Reports and graphs can all be saved as files or printed for a hard-copy record of skater performance.

Coaches can easily manage multiple students in the same or different events.

The Program Planner is licensed on a seasonal basis (July 1 through June 30 the following year).  There is no charge for upgrades and technical support during any one season.

The Program Planner runs under Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.  For a full description, download the User Guide.
