On-line Seminar Ideas

Seminars conducted on-line can reach the largest audience and can be designed to be self paced
      Obviously the topics of any workshops, seminars, or training sessions must consider the age, interests, skills, and motivations of the attendees. You can start with simple topics to provide an orientation for parents of new skaters that have expressed an interest in joining your club and/or participating in a Basic Skating Skills Program your club is sponsoring.

      To reduce expenses, consider local resources such as judges, coaches, skaters, and parents of experienced skaters that have experience testing and competing. Some park and recreation departments, local schools, or churchs may have facilities to host your event at no or low cost.

      An orientation seminar can cover a wide variety of topics that can be held in different parts over a period of several weeks. Some clubs may consider hosting the seminars at the rink for parents while their skater(s) and participating in on-ice activities:
  • Successful Sports Parenting
  • Selecting Boots and Blades
  • Finding a Coach
  • Understanding the Athlete's Physical Growth and Development
  • USFS Parents Code of Conduct

    • Tips from a Judge
    • Mental Preparation
    • Goal Setting
    • What to eat before competing
  • A Nutrition Game Plan
  • Goal Setting and Mental Preparation
  • Building Self Confidence and Self Esteem
