Second Figure Test

    Figures, or school figures, refer to circular patterns which skaters trace on the ice to demonstrate skill in placing clean turns evenly on round circles. These circles are skated using one foot at a time. As a skater masters balance, control, flow, and controlled edges it is possible to achieve clean and accurate tracings.

     The goal of these workshops is to demonstrate the turns performed on two and three lobe circles that are the basic foundation of the Compulsory School Figures tests that previously required to be passed prior to taking the Free Skating tests to qualify skaters to enter competition events.

     Lesson plans are being developed that are designed to have video clips of the technical skills and performance levels of each element. It is our hope to gradually add these resources to the lesson plans as time and funding permits.
