The Bridge Special Olympic curriculum provides an introduction to ice skating.
No previous experience skating is necessary. The workshops are designed for skaters for whom this will be their first time on ice through more experienced skaters.
Skaters will be divided by skill groups to accommodate skaters at all levels.
The concept is to build on a skater's basic ability to perform edges and turns by adding the concept of mini programs without music.
The curriculum listed is designed to help introduce various forms of ice skating.
Depending of the skill of some groups, skaters may only work on one principle for the entire allotted time during the session.
Skaters are encouraged to participate in off ice instruction to maximize the value of the on-ice time.
➢ Opportunities available to test and compete in ice dancing
➢ Variations of technique and style
