"Go Figure" is a Disney Channel Original Movie that aired on June 10, 2005. Walt Disney Records released the Go Figure soundtrack on June 7 featuring the title track by Everlife along with a music video.

Plot

Katelin Kingsford (Jordan Hinson) dreams of becoming the greatest figure skater of all time. When her favorite coach, Natasha Goberman, wants to coach her at an academy school, her parents say no but she is then offered a scholarship. She arrives on a hockey scholarship though she's a figure skater. She has to learn to play on the girls' hockey team, where the members aren't very friendly towards her at first and it's difficult for her. She also has to hide the fact that she's a figure skater a.k.a a twirl girl from the hockey girls for fear of being "skinned alive" by them (the two teams are rivals). On the figure skating team, the girls dislike her because of how talented she is. Two of the figure skaters sabotage her at one point, preventing Katelin from meeting her role model, (Kristi Yamaguchi), at a practice. Though Katelin goes through many hard times, she turns out to be a great hockey player and a great figure skater. When she has to choose between the two sports, (an important event was held for both on the same day) Katelin originally chooses the ice hockey game, but is later able to barely make it to her ice skating competition (the hockey team finds out about her ice skating but are supportive about it). She ends up losing the hockey championship but winning the figure skating competition, with her newfound hockey team friends, family, and a great guy by her side.

Trivia

* One of the stunt skaters, Stephanie Rosenthal, actually went to Nationals. She placed 8th overall, and is the national collegiate champion.
* Disney planned for "Go Figure" to be hugely successful and released a soundtrack and was planning to release a DVD. However, "Go Figure" did not live up to its expectations.
* As stated on the original script, the working title of this movie was "Stick It", which went on to be another Touchstone picture that was released into theaters.

Awards

A nomination in the Young Artist Awards for Best Television Movie or Special.

Differences between the movie and real-world figure skating

* The minimum age to appear in the World Championships is 16. Several points in the plot involve characters participating in events they would actually have been too young to enter.
* The U.S. Nationals does not use theatrical lighting for any of the programs, except the exhibition.
* The short program and free skate are held on different days. A winner could not be declared after a single skate.
* Music for the short program and long program must be instrumental.
