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.


It has now been 5 years since I got back on the ice. My blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1000 subscribers. That’s just crazy!

Coffee Club fun with Power Pulls

Kimmi Jeffers, one of newest coaches at Lilac City Figure Skating Club coached a small but eager group of skaters in coffee club today.

We did some really fun (and tiring) exercises with edges and hockey pushes and worked on forward and backward power pulls and integrating them with cross steps.

Great fun - great lesson
