MFSC Skaters take U.S. Figure Skating’s S.T.A.R.S. fitness tests

On June 7, 2015, ten Miami Figure Skating Club athletes participated in U.S. Figure Skating’s S.T.A.R.S. fitness testing combine. The ten Miami skaters were, Maia Snyder, Melissa Gonzalez, Isabella Martin, Ariana Silva Falcon, Iris Kirchman, Danielle Cooner, Lesly Prieto, Katty Contreras, Jade Garcia, and Massiel Gonzalez. Isabella Vazquez and Veronica Manes also completed the S.T.A.R.S. combine in April and numerous other MFSC athletes have taken it in previous years.

S.T.A.R.S. fitness testing consists of 15 specific strength and conditioning assessments in three areas important to on-ice perfor¬mance: 1) Strength and power; 2) Flexibility; 3) Agility, balance and coordination. Although all of these athletic skills are trained on the ice, off-ice training in these areas is also important for strengthening muscles, improving specific techniques and reducing the athlete’s risk of injury.

Our Miami athletes received immediate feedback, including comparisons with other athletes of the same age and competitive levels, and specific exercises to improve each of the 15 assessed areas. That feedback can be shared with coaches and Kendall Ice Arena fitness trainers to assist in developing a training program tailored to each athlete’s specific strengths and weaknesses. At the end of the competitive season the athletes will be able to compare their results with all results from all athletes from previous years.

The S.T.A.R.S. combine also included a one hour seminar for coaches, parents, and athletes. The seminar was entitled “The Training Game” and was presented by Peter Zapalo, Director of Sports Science and Medicine for U.S. Figure Skating. The seminar heavily stressed coordinating on-ice lessons and practices and off-ice conditioning very specifically with performance goals for the year, and emphasized the importance of varying the training volume and intensity at different stages of the season for maximum results.

IJS Seminar

Featuring USFS National Technical Specialist Kate Horan

USFS Tech Specialist Critique Seminar

Kendall Ice Arena invited USFS National Technical Specialist Kate Horan from Virginia on April 25 and 26 to conduct a seminar for skaters planning to compete at the upcoming South Atlantics Regional Championships. Mrs. Horan started off with a Q & A Session and discussed important issues from the viewpoint of the IJS Technical Panel. The Miami FSC Regionals Team then presented their Long Programs on Saturday evening and Short programs on Sunday morning. The skaters were critiqued by the specialist who offered constructive IJS criticisim and tips. USFS Judge Christina Vandermissen joined in on Sunday morning to offer comments from the judges point of view. Parents, coaches and skaters all unanimously agreed that it was a very positive and productive weekend! Many thanks to Kate and Christina!

USFS National Components Camp News

Miami FSC USFS Components Camp SkatersComponents Camp Miami FSC Parents

Miami FSC Skaters are training at the USFS National Components Camp in Geneva, Illinois at the Fox Valley Ice Arena April 17-19, 2015. Pictured above from left to right are Danielle Cooner, Isabella Vazquez, Veronica Manes and Ariana Silva-Falcon.

This is a national training camp open to athletes who competed at the most recent regional championships. It will feature on-ice and off-ice classes designed to help competitive skaters improve their program components mark.

U.S. Figure Skating's Athlete Development Department is responsible for the curriculum, faculty and design of this camp. Athletes are assigned to "teams" of 20 skaters of similar skill, age and skating discipline. Athletes stay with their team for the entire weekend and learn in a fun, group environment.

The focus of the camp is on developing skills in a relaxed setting to help competitive skaters improve their scores in the five program components areas: Skating Skills, Transitions, Choreography, Performance/Execution and Musical Interpretation.

All presenters are selected for their expertise in teaching athletes "the second mark" and for their experience in working with groups of athletes. Singles, pairs and ice dancing athletes have the opportunity to focus on developing their inner artist and performer, their skating skills, edges and turns, making friends and having a blast while not having to worry about the technical aspect of the sport!

Great Results at the Florida Open!

Congratulations to all of the Miami FSC skaters who competed at the Florida Open in Maitalnd, Florida April 10 to 13. Our skaters performed exceptionally well with many medals received and two making the final rounds for the hotly contested Juvenile and Intermediate levels!
