Intermediate and Advanced Off Ice Strength &
Conditioning Class Description
Classes to be taught by: Kris Beebe of Kris Beebe Wellness
This class is based off the basic principles of the USFSA S.T.A.R.S. program. Once the 'naturally talented'
skaters reach a level at which double jumps and difficult spins are required, the natural ability will only take them so far.
A skater’s core strength and plyometric strength requirements in the sport of figure skating are significant, and at
some point, a skater needs to build strength beyond what he or she naturally has. This class is for figure skaters who
are serious about progressing their on-ice skills at a faster pace and want and need to handle the strength demands of jumping,
spinning, and longer programs.
Students will learn and understand the importance of all the components a skater needs to be successful:
· Core strength and stability-Must have a strong core to maintain balance, check rotation with spins and maintain tight air position for jumping,
control the upper body position during footwork, stroking, and crossovers
· Balance- Almost all skating is
done on one foot.
· Strength and Power-
For speed, higher jumps, longer and faster spins, more stable landings, improves endurance to skate through a whole program,
strength is the number one necessity for a skater to improve and become consistent.
· Flexibility- From basic elements to the more advanced, all require a certain
muscle length to be performed correctly. Muscle flexibility controls the angle of the joints on a jump take-off and landing-any
deficit can affect the quality of the jump. Each joint in your body needs a balance of flexibility on all sides. If there
is an imbalance of muscle length, there is a higher risk of injury.
· Each class will be limited to 8 skaters to provide the best one on one evaluation
· First Session will be a participant evaluation and goal setting session
· Each class will include a warm-up, strength and endurance, and cool
down with static flexibility
