Skating Fridays

Competition Seminar

This past weekend I attended a skating seminar that was focused on preparing for competitions. I was honored to have an all-star faculty with world and Olympic level coaches. My skating friend K came with me.

The seminar consisted of skaters from all levels and ages. The oldest kid skater was 17, and she thought she was old until I told her that I was double her age and then some.

The faculty assigned us to the group with the elite skaters and asked us to try to do the best we could and keep up. I’m happy to say that we did. Although some of the exercises were difficult for us, I am thrilled that I only fell twice that day and didn’t make too big of a fool of myself.

I’ll break up my notes into a few different posts so I don’t overwhelm you all at once. There was a lot of information to digest, and I’ll try to share it all. First up: Tips for competition preparation.

See you  next week!
