Chapter 6. Completing Fundamental Figures -

The basic figures consist of figure eights (two circles) and Serpentine eights (three circles) that are skated on a circle(s) with a diameter that is approximately three times the height of the skater.  Loops are skated on circles with a diameter approximately 3/4 to the full height of the skater.

Skaters perform various turns on the circles of two sizes (figure 8 and loop). These include:

  • Forward and Backwards Outside and Inside Edge Three turns that rotate into the center of the circle.
  • Forward and Backwards Outside and Inside Edge Brackets that rotate into the center of the circle.
  • Forward and Backwards Outside and Inside Edge Rockers that rotate into the center of the circle.
  • Forward and Backwards Outside and Inside Edge Counters that rotate out of (away from) the center of the circle.
  • Forward and Backwards Outside and Inside Edge Loops that rotate into the center of the circle.
