U.S. Figure Skating, the premier source for all things figure skating, has teamed up with Rink Tank Interactive to bring you the ' U.S. Figure Skating Skate Coach' app series for iPhone and iPod Touch. This app will work on the iPad as well, but the app is not Universal. We are working hard on the U.S. Figure Skating Skate Coach for iPad master edition which will be optimized for the iPad so check back soon!
The Skate Coach app series was designed to help skaters, parents, instructors and officials understand the standards set for the Basic Skills Program through the use of high definition video examples. A special thank you to Crystal Roe & the Sanchez family for their hard work in preparing the demo videos, as well as Jim Beyer, Bridget Kaus & Elizabeth Fiore of Polar Ice for their generous assistance with ice time!
The Hockey 1-4 app is designed to teach the fundamentals of hockey skating. The skills were developed in conjunction with USA Hockey & STAR. All elements are shown without a stick or puck as to emphasize proper skating techniques.
Whether in the comfort of your own home, traveling to the rink or during practice, you will always have a Skate Coach in your pocket!
DISCLAIMER: Participating in ice skating has inherent risks, but with good technique and sound equipment these risks are mitigated. While the Skate Coach app series provides examples of skills performed correctly, they are NOT meant to supplement professional skating instruction! Improper use of the Skate Coach apps could result in bodily harm! Please do not attempt these maneuvers while holding an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad on the ice.
