"Wherever I go, I meet skaters of all ages and descriptions. Possibly the most fascinating are the adult skaters whose passion for learning and growing in our sport is inspiring. They love and pursue skating in such a beautiful way, but their needs are unique. That is why we are having a special camp just for adults. Coming this August, adult skaters can come to Nashville and celebrate their love of skating with other adults in a camp created just for them.
Skating is fun! And it's truly special when shared with other's with the same passion and goals."
- Scott Hamilton, Olympic Champion
"I can't wait to share with the adult skating community what great things we now have to offer at our annual adult camp! Same philosophy, format, and fun immersion weekend but in our amazing new training environment! This year we will offer three different tracks and an ice dance track at the camp. I'm bursting with excitement at all that we have to offer in staff, facilities, and location! Join us August 9-11, 2019 to kick off your fall training!"

Group 1: This track will concentrate on those skaters building their foundation in the sport. Beginning spins and jumps will be executed while learning the exercises and drills needed to begin to tackle an Axel.
Group 2: Is your Axel almost consistent or are you are starting to focus on developing your single jumps into doubles? This is the track for you! Sessions will focus on jump technique, bridging the gap between single and double rotations while giving you the confidence to increase your technical difficulty.
Group 3: You're movin' and groovin'! Challenge yourself with higher level doubles and taking your standard jumps to the next level with sequences, combinations, and technical challenges we'll throw your way!
Group 4: Ice Dancers... we're feelin' the beat! Join us for some general sessions to build your strength, get you in a good mindset and set goals for the future while then taking things to the next level with track-specific sessions. From rehearsing pattern dances, skating skills, advanced turns to focusing on costume/performance development, we're ready to watch you shine!
Join Us At Our New Site, Y'all!

The camp was so amazing to not only be taken seriously as an adult skater, but to also be given access to such incredible knowledge through the staff. I connected with so many wonderful people, learned so much, was challenged, and feel so much more confident in moving forward! I can’t wait to come back and do it all again next year!

At the camp the pervasive thought was “of course you can”. That was Kori’s response when I said I couldn’t do a loop jump. And she showed me I could. In seconds. Everyone treated us like athletes and artists. Constantly reinforcing that we are. They also didn’t coddle us because we were adults of a certain age. It was a very safe space to try new things and grow our skills. It was an amazing experience.
- Scott Davis
The camp was such an amazing experience and I can’t wait to come back! The camp was so inspiring on multiple levels! First, you get to learn from the most talented coaches out there and be respected as an adult skater. Additionally, being among other adults that are as crazy and passionate as you are about figure skating was heartwarming and exciting. As a relatively new adult skater, I’ve learned so much more about skating, off-ice conditioning and mental prep. The camp was extremely well-organized and everything ran so smoothly, it was pure joy! I can’t wait to go back next year!
- Gaia Shamis
This camp was a wonderful break from the daily grind and I returned home feeling totally energized. What a fantastic opportunity to do something I love, for three days straight, with a great group who love it as much as I do! Everyone at the rink was very welcoming and seemed genuinely excited to have us there. My goals going into the event were to learn more about the mental aspects of skating, gain some new techniques or exercises to incorporate into practices at my home rink and meet other adults who skate. I accomplished all of these and more. I appreciated the dual emphasis on technique and “joy of skating”. As an adult who skates, I am primarily doing it because I love it, but I also want to push myself to achieve my full potential. The camp was perfect for helping me move forward towards that goal. I can’t wait to skate with you guys again!
- Lauren Wojcik
The camp is a unique experience where I not only have learned amazing new skills from phenomenal coaches, but I have formed lifelong friends with adults that share the same passion for skating I do. Every coach is out there to help each and every skater get better and reach their individual goals! They have pushed me beyond what I thought I was capable of, and I cannot wait to come back next year to learn more!
- Asal Salehpoor
Adult camp is everything I could have hoped for, packaged into a wonderful three-day experience. While the event is geared toward adult skaters, the training we received both on and off the ice could easily have been targeted at elite skaters. The fantastic team of coaches, choreographers, and trainers focused on the various aspects of mental and physical conditioning essential to the success of any athlete, regardless of level. I'm grateful to the staff for their boundless enthusiasm, to the elite athletes who came out to answer questions and show their support for adult skating, and for the opportunity to meet so many other adult skaters just as passionate about this sport as I am over the course of one unforgettable weekend. Next year's event can't come quickly enough!
- Andrew Sass
The camp is truly a transformative experience not only for the body, but also the mind and soul. Kori and the staff of top level coaches with their infectious positive energy pushed me to an entirely new level of skating with the combination of on and off ice sessions and mental training seminars! I also met a wonderfully supportive group of skaters that share my passion.
- Monika Benitez
Get inspired by a world-class coaching team and fellow skaters! The workshop is a great mixture of on-ice & off-ice sessions and class-room training. From the very first minute (thanks Heather - I love the binder & practical stuff) you feel the dedication to this event and to Adult Skating. For 3 days, we were a part of this rink and we all shared the love and passion for skating no matter of age, ability or previous results.
- Irina Koeltzsch
I have attended the camp for two years in a row and have begun referring younger skaters at my rink to their events. Their instruction has me working on skills and executing elements that I never thought possible! Kori and her team take a holistic approach to coaching the whole athlete - mind and body, on and off the ice. They show you how you progress rather than just flying from the seat of your pants. You will return home with an action plan that you can use for your training that will hold yourself, and your primary coach(es) accountable for your progress and success.
- Aimee Ricca
I truly did not know what to expect when I signed up. I consider myself an introvert and can sometimes shut down when in large groups. As anxious as I was I felt so welcomed by the staff the very first day. After seeing a couple of faces I recognized everything else fell into place. I let myself roll with whatever happened. I pushed myself to step up and introduce myself to other skaters. I learned something from each experience at each class whether on ice of off ice. I never thought I could do a wonky by okay cartwheel! No matter what level you were, the coaches and elite skaters made us all feel special. Thank you for that.
