Medals are awarded to members of Central California Interclub Association clubs whose

IJS numerical score for a complete event at non qualifying member club competitions, which exceeds their previous highest score as recorded in the CCIA database.

Personal Best medals are awarded independently of a skater's final placement (1st, 2nd, 3rd,

Where segments (ex: Short Program, Free Skate) of a complete event are treated as
separate events, scores for each at this competition will be added to determine whether a
Personal Best has been achieved.

This wonderful program to recognize and reward the best score achieved by a CCIA skater in a particular event was conceived and developed by Robin Pape of University Ice Skating Club of San Jose.
