Skating Fridays

Being Trolled By My Coach (Part 1)

Last week, I was practicing the new butterfly spin entry. I put my phone on the boards and hit Record. As I was skating back towards the boards, I noticed her making an alligator chomping motion with her hands.

After I pushed the stop button on my phone, she ecstatically exclaimed, “I was trying to squish your spin! Did you see? Did you see?”

It was so cute how proud she was of herself. Don’t mind my spin entry – it wasn’t a good one and not one worth paying attention to. Just keep watching the video to see my coach being silly.

She’s got something else up her sleeve so stay tuned until next week to see what stunt she pulls!
