2020 Peggy Fleming Trophy Will Be Held
By
A Streamed Virtual Competition

The Competition is Limited to 18 Senior Men and Ladies

 

The 2020 Peggy Fleming Trophy (PFT) has changed to an exciting new format, a virtual streamed competition.

There is NO Entry Fee. There IS price money.

Entrants will video their competition programs at their home arenas (or arena of your choice) and then upload their program digitally.

Video submission deadline is Friday, July 10, 2020.

The logistics of the virtual competition are in place and instructions once finalized will be sent to all entrants.

My message today is to enter immediately, continue your training, and develop your PFT competition program.

The event will combine 18 Senior Men and Ladies who will compete together and against each other for the Trophy. The focus of the event is to showcase each skater’s ability to artistically express and present a complete 3:30 minute composition while demonstrating superior technical skills.

The 2020 Prize money for a podium finish will continue as follows:

  • 1st place:  $3,000
  • 2nd place:  $2,000
  • 3rd place:  $1,000

In 2020 there will be nine technical elements which have fixed base values and receive Grade of Execution (GOE) marks based on the artistic execution of the element in relationship to the program as a whole. The elements are as follows:

  • 4 jump elements (adding one additional jump pass this year, a required axel-type jump)
  • 3 spin elements
  • 1 step sequence
  • 1 signature move

Note: The definition of the creative signature move is now refined and clarified. Please see the separate tab on this website: Signature Move Definition.

I look forward to your entry into the 3rd Annual Peggy Fleming Trophy coupled with my ongoing appreciation and thanks to the Broadmoor Skating Club and the Broadmoor Open!
