On-line Seminar Ideas

 The Internet Customized Presentations
      The most effective use of available resources is to create a specialized articles addressing the needs of each individual who represents a target audience that is very difficulty to keep interested and focused on
topics that need different approaches due to the age, interests, skills, and motivations of the attendees.

      With an Internet site, it is easy to develop an index starting 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.

      Most clubs have a wide range of skating skills and age groups interested in Free Skating, MITF, Compulsory Dancing, Free Dancing, Pairs, Synchronized Team Skating, Theater On Ice Teams, and Artistic and Showcase events.

      Ideally a consortium of clubs can organization and maintain separate components rather than having each club starting from zero to develop high quality seminar materials.

      On-line Seminars are especially valuable is the are organized so a person can pick and choose the units they wish to view. This concept requires a database of Commonly asked Questions and Answers, plus an open forum to ask questions with multiple people providing their experiences and comments,

Keep Expenses to a Minimum
      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 churches may have facilities to host your event at no or low cost.

      There are ways to use the internet to setup video conferences with presenters at remote locations.

      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
