Hello Friends of Pinkskate!
Today’s blog post is dedicated specifically to Teenage figure skaters and younger. I especially want to hear from you because almost every skater in your age group has something Very important that they are trying to accomplish.
Learning brand new elements like Freestyle 4 footwork, an Axel or preparing for your moves-in-the-field test can sometimes generate pressure which then leads to stress. I want to offer you a way to discuss those very issues with people who get it and understand.
If you have been feeling stressed out by having to learn new or difficult techniques, the good news is that it’s perfectly normal to have that feeling! The other important thing to remember is that you are not alone and there are plenty of other skaters probably feeling the exact same way.
You are invited to join our Ice Chat and share your thoughts on the hardest figure skating elements that you’ve been working on. With your participation in this blog post, maybe other skaters will feel less stressed and be encouraged by your input! = )
Get started by answering one or more of the following questions below:
- What is the most difficult technique that you are currently working on?
- How are you trying to improve that technique?
- What helpful advice can you offer a fellow skater at your current level?
- What makes you relax after a long workout or lesson on the ice?
Keep up the hard work and never give up! Don’t forget – Love yourself and Love your sport!
Much Love from,
