Skater Development Seminar

August 22-25

Four of our TBFSC skaters recently had the opportunity to attend the SCNO Skater Development in Sault Ste. Marie.  The skaters worked on ice with Ravi Walia - world and olympic coach.  Ravi also coaches 2 time canadian champion and olympic silver medalist Kaetlyn Osmond.  The girls also worked on ice with Jamie Forsythe, coach and choreographer.  Jamie has choreographed programs for many national and international skaters. The seminar was rounded out with dance, fitness  and nutrition classes! It was a busy but great weekend for the girls!

TBFSC has been participating in a Skate Canada Canskate pilot program for the last two years. The program has been deemed successful and just this year, Skate Canada has introduced this CanSkate program to the rest of the skating clubs in Canada. We welcome all CanSkate participants back to our third year in this program.  We were very excited to be invited to be a part of this pilot program and we are looking forward to continuing on with our fun and upbeat CanSkate sessions!  Register your child today!

Saturday Morning Simmulations

Please check back in September of dates and times

TBFSC will once again offering Saturday morning simmulations to all interested skaters.

Simmulations give skaters the opportunity to run through their programs alone on the ice, in an effort to simmulate the competition and test experience to help prepare them for competitions and test days. Skaters may wear their competition outfits if they choose. This program is extremely beneficial to all ages and skating levels. 

Each skater will participate in a 5-6 minute warm up and then run through their program. Once simmulations are complete, there will be a general skating session.

 

Simmulations are then followed by dryland training next door at the Canada Games Complex.  A trainer with dance background will take skaters through a program which will develop their physical ability for figure skating as well as other sports! Strength training, core strength, plyometrics and flexibility will all be covered.

Please note: Simmulations and Dryland Trainings are 2 separate programs with separate costs. Skaters may choose to do one or both.

For more information on either program, please contact Barb O'Brien at davebarb(at)tbaytel(dot)net . Space is limited so register your skater early!

TBFSC is proud to offer a full figure skating program!
