I’m back in the Inland Northwest. Trying to figure out my summer skating schedule and coaching options. Last summer I worked with coach John Saitta in Coeur d’Alene and so loved working with him. He is a great technician and has the ability to really explain how to get things to work when they aren’t working. Also he’s very patient and doesn’t buy into all the adult skating excuses! If coaches cater to our laundry list of aches and pains and excuses we would never make any progress!
While his current coaching schedule is full I was able to snag a lesson during a cancellation albeit I had to skate at O’Dark Thirty from 6:00 am to 8:00 am to get the lesson. A major chore for me.
Still on my new dance blades I wanted him to eval my spins and see if we should continue to work on moves in the field on them.
