Learn to Skate USA, the premier source for basic skating, has teamed up with Rink Tank Interactive to bring you the ' U.S. Figure Skating Skate Coach' app series for iOS!
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 Paula Wagener, creator of the AIM program, as well as all of the skaters who participated in the app.
The AIM 1-4 app will show skaters the basic principles & philosophy of choreography as well as a foundation in basic body alignment, movement & line. Candidates for this class should have passed Basic 4 and above.
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.

This app has been COMPLETELY redesigned and all videos were refilmed with Douglas Razzano, National and International Medalist, and JGP Final Qualifier! Additionally, there are some class outages from the master of AIM herself, Paula Wagener! Welcome to the new look of the Skate Coach app series for iOS, now with multitasking & picture in picture for iOS 9! Enjoy!
Ratings and Reviews
I was expecting something more advanced than the T position and two other examples of how to hold your arms if that gives you an idea of what's covered. The demos are performed by novices so you won't get much out of them. I was dumbstruck by how useless and awful this was. The others were good to great. Save your money. I wish I had.
Waste of money, no help what so ever. Agree with the previous comment as being useless.
These apps are great. Chock full of useful information and video samples. Easy to use if you're a coach or student. They also make great reference for the casual skater. Cant wait to see what comes next.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
