The 6:45-7:45 session was designated for "High" session skaters: Those working on Axels, double jumps, advanced spins. "Low" session skaters were described as Basic Skills through Freeskate 3 levels. My session was described as "OPEN", but all the of the morning high level skaters were still on the ice.
There is a competition next weekend so one of the moms was telling me that it's been especially crowded lately. I was hesitant to go out there, but I mustered up the courage and paid my $8.25 to skate for 45 minutes.
The video I am posting is just raw footage of the last 5 minutes of my practice.
You can see a boy working on double jumps with his coach in the harness. Another girl running her program in the background.. and me falling while trying to learn a backspin! You may have to turn your head or your computer sideways, unless I can fix this technical difficulty!
I like the demi-snow angel ;)ReplyDelete
Our rink has also been more crowded with high level skaters but I think its due to some schools being out already.
