Off-Ice Seminar Topics

     The following is a list of seminar topics for a potential audience of new parents, their young skaters, and prospective judges.

     Many clubs host such seminars annually for new members so that they are acquainted with the many facets of becoming a USFS member taking tests and entering competitions. Because the local hosting club can usually draw upon the talents and expertise of local elite skaters, coaches, and judges, the cost is usually very nominal.

    Some suggestions for possible topics that might be included in an off ice seminar for parents and skaters include:
