How important is it to participate in ISI and Basic Skating Skills competitions?

Skaters who participate in ISI and USFS Basic Skating competitions develop self-confidence and presentation skills that are invaluable to their future success in taking USFS tests and placing in competitions.

There are many local opportunities for skaters to test their skills without the expense of traveling to rinks that require a minimum of an overnight stay.
