Figure Skater Problems

 posted 2 weeks ago
I'm 15 and I just started figure skating again (I did it when I was like 8)! I can't really any spins or jumps, but I know the basics for going forwards and backwards. Im working on my Scorpion on ice and I skate with my leg parallel and almost vertical from the ice. How long will it be until I am able to learn jumps and spins!?

It varies for everyone. It depends on how much practice time you get, how dedicated you are, your coach’s methods, etc, etc. Just work hard and you will get it eventually! Don’t give up!

Hello! Just thought you might like to know about the giveaway of out crash pads we're doing--at LiveKühn™ we are really excited about the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games, so we're giving away some of our PeacePads™! We'll randomly choose one of the correct comments answering the Olympic trivia on our Facebook, and they'll win the PeacePad™ of their choice! The first of our four giveaways just started today: facebook/livekuhn

Hi! I am also a teen figure skater. :) I started my own brand of figure skating crash pads, called PeacePads™, when I had tried everything available, and nothing worked the way I wanted it to. I also had a hip injury when I was 11 from falling repetitively while learning new jumps, and this injury was preventable. I want to help other skaters, and have them understand the importance of safety. I am giving away a set of my pads now, and I'm trying to get the word out to skaters. Will you help?


Of course, love! If you are in need of new crash pads, check her out! ^^^

The closest arena is two and a half hours away, but isn't the best. The only other good arenas up here besides ours is a seven hour drive or a two hour plane ride ): if I want to skate ill have to leave home D: and it's a scary thought..

Our arena just burned down, so there won't be skating here anymore .. What do we do now? There's nothing left..

I’m so sorry to hear this! :( I don’t know what to tell you, but if you ever need my help in any way or just need someone to talk to, I’m Always here! Is there another rink that you would be able to practice at nearby? Or could you maybe work on off-ice and concentrate on that and working on your core and balance and flexibility until the rink gets rebuilt or repaired? :/
