Bronze
The maximum time is 1:40 min.
A competitor in the Adult Bronze Free Skating event must perform a wellbalanced program that must contain:
 A maximum of four (4) jump elements. Only single jumps are permitted, no Axel type jump, no double or triple jumps can be included.
A jump combination may consist of the same or another single jump. There may be up to three jump combinations or jump sequences in the Free Program. One jump combination could consist of up to three (3) listed jumps, the other two up to two (2) listed jumps. A jump sequence may consist of any number of single jumps that may be linked by nonlisted jumps like mazurkas, halfloops etc. and/or hops immediately following each other while maintaining the jump rhythm (knee); there can be no turns/steps, crossovers or stroking during the sequence. However, only the two jumps with the highest value will count. Any solo jump can be repeated only once and this repetition must be done either in a jump combination or in a jump sequence. Nonlisted jumps may be included in the program as part of connecting footwork, preceding single or double jumps.
 A maximum of two (2) spins of a different abbreviation; The spins must have a required minimum number of revolutions: three (3) for the spin with only one position and no change of foot and four (4) for the spin combination with no change of foot and eight (4 + 4) for the spin combination with change of foot. Flying spins are not permitted.
There must be a minimum of two (2) revolutions in each position or the position will not be counted.
 A maximum of one step sequence (i.e., circular, straight line, serpentine) or spiral sequence covering at least 50% of the usual pattern (e.g. half a serpentine, half of a straight line etc.). In case of a circular step sequence a full circle is required covering 1/2 the ice surface.
Additional spiral sequences and step sequences will not be counted as a step sequence but will be counted as movesinthe field (transitions) and marked as such.
Silver
The maximum time is 2:10 min.
A competitor in the Adult Silver Free Skating event must perform a wellbalanced program that may contain:
 A maximum of five (5) jump elements. The single Axel or any other single Axel type jump and all other single jumps are permitted.
A jump combination may consist of the same or another single jump. There may be up to three jump combinations or jump sequences in the Free Program. One jump combination could consist of up to three (3) listed jumps, the other two up to two (2) listed jumps. A jump sequence may consist of any number of single jumps that may be linked by nonlisted jumps like mazurkas, halfloops etc. and/or hops immediately following each other while maintaining the jump rhythm (knee); there can be no turns/steps, crossovers or stroking during the sequence. However, only the two jumps with the highest value will count. Any solo jump can be repeated only once and this repetition must be done either in a jump combination or in a jump sequence. Nonlisted jumps may be included in the program as part of connecting footwork, preceding single jumps or an axel type jump.
 A maximum of three (3) spins of different abbreviations, one of which must be a spin combination with a change of foot. The spins must have a required minimum number of revolutions: three (3) for the flying spin with no change of foot after landing, three (3) for the spin with only one position and no change of foot and four (4) for the spin combination with no change of foot and eight (4 + 4) for the spin combination with change of foot.
There must be a minimum of two (2) revolutions in each position or the position will not be counted.
 A maximum of one step sequence (i.e., circular, straight line, serpentine) or spiral sequence covering at least 50% of the usual pattern (e.g., half a serpentine, half of a straight line etc.) In case of a circular step sequence a full circle is required covering 1/2 the ice surface.
Additional spiral sequences and step sequences will not be counted as a step sequence but will be counted as movesinthe field (transitions) and marked as such.
Gold

There may be up to three jump combinations or jump sequences in the Free Program. One jump combination could consist of up to three (3) listed jumps, the other two up to two (2) listed jumps. A jump sequence may consist of any number of single and double jumps, excluding a double Flip, a double Lutz, a double Axel and all triple jumps that may be linked by nonlisted jumps like mazurkas, halfloops etc. and/or hops immediately following each other while maintaining the jump rhythm (knee); there can be no turns/steps, crossovers or stroking during the sequence. However, only the two jumps with the highest value will count. Any solo jump can be repeated only once and this repetition must be done either in a jump combination or in a jump sequence. Nonlisted jumps may be included in the program as part of connecting footwork, preceding single or double jumps.

The spins must have a required minimum number of revolutions: four (4) for the flying spin with no change of foot after landing, four (4) for the spin with only one position and no change of foot and four (4) for the spin combination with no change of foot and eight (4 + 4) for the spin combination with change of foot.
There must be a minimum of two (2) revolutions in each position or the position will not be counted.
 A maximum of one step sequence (i.e., circular, straight line, serpentine) or spiral sequence according to the requirements.
