•WORKING ON THE BASICS•

It’s amazing how quickly skaters improve once they have correctly mastered their basic skating skills. .


If we rush through teaching the foundations at some point the skater will hit a plateau, no longer progressing, and we have to come back to the start and re-teach it. And usually this requires undoing years of bad habits and technique. ⛸

Why not spend the time from the beginning building a solid foundation..it’s not always the most fun thing to do but it ensures that when you get to the fun stuff, you get it quicker and it’s consistent 😉

MASTER THE FUNDAMENTALS
Your inside edges, outside edges, forward skating, backward skating and the ability to connect different directions and edges are essential. This is what will help to separate you from others.
.
Regardless of your ice sport - figure skating, hockey, ringette or speed skating...progressing and excelling on the ice comes down to learning and mastering the fundamentals.
.
Whether you’re just learning to skate like this young skater or you’ve been skating for years, take time every session to master the fundamentals. •

First time for @anda.hou working the single leg mini hurdles. We use this drill to work on single-leg strength, power and stability.
Jumping over multiple hurdles on one leg not only increases strength in your major lower body muscles like your quads and hamstrings, it also targets your small stabilizing muscles that can help prevent injury and improve your performance. •

Throwback to last week when I had the amazing opportunity of leading the off-ice sessions for 60 local figure skaters at the Elvis Stojko Seminar! •

Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming the things you thought you couldn’t do. •

It’s all in the details!
Working on balance, control with great attention to detail with this Junior level skater.
When done accurately, off-ice exercises can accelerate any athlete’s learning curve on the ice. •

Reminiscing about working with Doug Leigh, Elvis Stojkos' coach. I had some amazing summers in Barrie learning a ton from him about coaching.

Oh hey there Kurt Browning...fancy seeing you again (swipe LEFT to see 9-year old mini-me with Kurt).⠀

Have no idea who this figure skating legend is? He's four-time World Champion and four-time Canadian national champion....and is continuing to drive the sport forward.⠀

"A lack of focus, leads to a lack of progress". Growing and excelling in your sport doesn't just require physical growth, but also developing your mind.⠀

I LOVE working with kids, at each level. If they are taking to the ice for the first time ever, I love knowing that I am helping a child create a love for the ice and developing a skill that they will be able to enjoy for their lifetime. The higher level kids I really love working with them to help build their self confidence – helping them achieve what they dreamed or never thought they would be able to do.⠀
