On The Edge... Again

The last time I skated regularly, you needed 2 pair of skates, a scribe and skated patch. Triple jumps were almost unheard of, so were Bielman spins. Twizzles were only done by ice dancers and Ronald Regan was just elected into office.


Fast Forward 32 years. Starting January 2, 2012, I am back on the ice doing something else that was unheard of .... Adult Figure Skating. We had "coffee club", which was like adult swim, but there was no opportunity for testing or competition.

I'm Loving Our New Coffee Club

Week #3 for our coffee club.  We had 12 skaters today!!  Our guest coach was Chris Anders again...
Today after warming up we spent most of our lesson working on - and learning about TURNS.
I'm sure a few of the skaters today were learning about Brackets, Rockers and Counters for the first time.

Me? I know what they are but I cannot do any of them very well.  The Adult Gold MIF test has bracket turns on the test but I am nowhere near ready to take that test yet!
