Silver Pairs Test Video
At long last, here is the video for our Silver Pairs test. Final result?
We passed – and by all 3 judges! We turned in our video on a Friday evening and received our congrats letter from US Figure Skating the following Tuesday evening. Our test papers took a bit longer to receive (turns out our stand-in coach had it in her inbox but didn’t realize she needed to send them to us), but we are thrilled!
One judge gave lots of detailed comments and provided commentary on me, my partner and us as a team. She said that I was graceful (ha!!), had good landings (double ha!) and had good posture (that’s funny – my coach would definitely disagree on this one). As a team, we need to work on our speed, power, and confidence. Also, our unison and jump height need to improve.
All in all, it is great feedback that we can use to improve our skating as a pair. We can only improve from here, right?
We hope to make a few additional tweaks before competing this (at Adult Nationals next year and maybe sometime before that). Maybe at some point, we will attempt Adult Gold Pairs. That test is going to take a while…
