Information is an important tool that provides a basis for the articles being developed. The goal is to help facilitate communications between judges and coaches that provides the technical descriptions coaches use in their teaching and for judges the basis they use to arrive at the minimum standard for passing each level of tests.
Comments and suggestions are welcomed so a balance of different perspectives can be achieved. Input from coaches and judges will help to achieve a consensus. We hope our efforts will result in skaters who are well prepared to test and receive a uniform evaluation by judges from rink to rink.
San Diego Figure Skating Communications (SDFSC) is a not for profit organization.
The goal of SDFSC is to provide information that
encourages participation and achievement in the sport of figure skating.
The articles are currently under development to serve as reading/reference
materials for seminars for skaters, parents, coaches, and judges.
Reading skills range from 6th grade to post graduate studies.
Your comments and suggestions would be appreciated.
