New 3 Turn Pattern for Adult Pre-Bronze MIF
A while back, Joanna posted USFSA rules changes coming up in September, including changes in elements for various tests. A bit confused by new element being added to Adult Pre-Bronze MIF:

Nottingham ice rink
Are there any UK skaters from Nottingham here who know what's happening with the ice? I've been hearing rumours, but if you have local knowledge please let me know - my daughter's supposed...

How to finish a sitspin?
How do you finish your sits? Lussi recommends the 'killer', which entails rising and pulling in at the same time. My coach has suggested opening the arms and leg up on the rise, and then pul...

Speed Revisited
So, down at Burbank rink today, dutifully practicing alternating 3s. Couple fellows my age show up at rink, doing hockey moves, tearing up ice, cutting people off, usual rude crap. Pretty fa...

Are Newbies Welcome?
Hi all...I'm a U.S. adult skater with AOSS (had to read a few posts to discover what that was!) and am curious about this forum. How many regulars are here? what's the average age? are there...

Choctaw glide
Any advice on front to back choctaws? I'm trying to skate a choctaw exercise from my MITF tape. It calls for a forward inside edge to back outside edge with a long glide. The long glide is t...

Suspicions Confirmed: My Wrist IS Broken
Thanks to all of you who nagged me over the last two days (in the nicest way possible, of course!) to see a doctor about my badly injured wrist, I am sitting here in proud possession of a lo...

Half-loop technique
I seem to be going more up than along on my half-loops, and the balance on the landing doesn't feel right - not sure what's wrong with it yet. My loop is OK - nothing spectacular, but I thin...

Inline wrist protectors
Believe it or not, y'all, those inline wrist protectors will help a lot in protecting you from falls that sprain or break wrists. The way they work is to deflect the blow to the palm of...

Differential Diagnosis: Sprained vs. Broken Wrist
OK, all you folks out there who "aren't a doctor but play one on rssir." This afternoon I fell while doing CW back crossovers. I still don't know exactly how; it wasn't the dreaded "cl...

Skating in Bloomington Indiana?
Hi - anyone out there know of any skating rinks in Bloomington Indiana? Online searches unsuccesful so far - just list one rink that looks like a winter-only (hockey season) rink. I'll be th...

Out of shape!
Sunday I went skating for the first time since our rink closed for the season. I made the drive to Columbus Ohio to the OSU ice rink. I couldn't believe how out of shape I've become in just ...

Camels: small observation
To safely strengthen my back, I work camels now on my homemade spinner rather than ice. I was surprised at the influence of arm position. On a back camel, I started with the arms in a...

How much do you spend a month (or annually) on Skating? Please help us for our upcoming article...
We are in the process of writing a DanceScape eZine (www.dancescape.com) article that compares participant costs in Dancing across a whole range of other recreational arts-based activities a...

Overdoing it
Don't seem to be able to kick the sore knees these days. 5 weeks now, but slowly easing. I really overdid it this winter. Think I'll give it a break for the summer. Stick to old standar...

Change of edge
Coach just introduced this, and I'm finding it harder than it looks! We've started out going from LFO, bringing the NS foot forward after half a circle, then back again, trying to exit into ...

Back on the ice with shaprer blades (LONG)!
Well about three weeks ago before work got in the way i left my skates with my coach (who takes them to a friend of his to sharpen) and finally yesterday managed to bunk off work early and g...

Would you get K-picks if it made your blades cheaper?
At Rainbo Sports they are having a blade special... but only on blades with parabolic, k-pick, gold plated, etc. I called to see what they had, and I decided to get Coronation Aces with K-pi...
