Webinar 1: Refine your process and begin to develop a better understanding of the responsibility AND opportunity you have as you coach beginning level athletes. This webinar will teach you how to create your coaching “roadmap”, by using basic exercises along with your foundational knowledge to build your methodology. This is the “how to” of jumping singles to doubles quickly without compromising technical integrity.
Webinar 2: In this webinar, we will begin to dissect the complexity of communication in your role as a coach. We will cover how the language of coaching can be a powerful tool in strategizing for your athlete's journey. Choice of wording, timing, delivery and appropriateness will be discussed with regards to various situations.
Webinar 3: In this webinar, we will discuss the various stages of element mastery and the correlating age/skill appropriate mind-body milestones. We will explore the potential advantages and pitfalls of the mind-body connection as they relate to avoiding or overcoming emotional barriers. Additionally, we will look into the development of an athlete as they progress and the expectations that change throughout their career.
Webinar 4: In this discussion, we will explore how powerful the mind-body connection is to becoming a successful athlete. Highlights of the session will include your role as a coach in taking a pro-active approach to mental training with your students, mental and emotional milestones, coaching your athletes to trust their training when it matters most, and the deliberate use of language that will empower your athletes throughout their journey. Join us to establish your "how to" guide to incorporating psychology concepts into your everyday coaching with athletes at every age and level.
In the "Power of Leadership" toolbox, we will discuss and refine our goals as they relate to managing the athletes and support staff whom we guide on a daily basis. Topics will include understanding leadership styles and theories, communication pitfalls, and characteristics of a leader. The utilization of current research in leadership to create, implement, and impact your team will prove to be a valuable resource in your success as a coach.
Join us as we demystify the toe loop from beginning to end... singles through quads! We will dive into the mechanics of the toe loop and will give coaches as many drills, tips and tools as we can fit into the session! With an understanding that toe loops often prove difficult to teach, correct or refine, we will also cover creating a technical progression which includes drills and exercises. This progression can serve as a guideline for mastery of this commonly erroneously performed jump!
Axel 101 – Foundations will address the major principles of jumping and thorough exploration into the Axel. Coaches will further develop their jump methodology. The relationships between biomechanics, physics, and athlete specificity will be discussed. This course concentrates primarily on preparing athletes for success in each of the phases of the jump necessary for completion, mastery, consistency, and ultimate jump reliability.
Axel 201 – Structure and Stability (2A-3A) is designed to help coaches develop a sophisticated and methodical approach to imparting their desired jump technique. Throughout this course, we will work actively through all stages of the jump and will address common errors and corrections, as well as share memorable analogies, drills, and visuals to help expedite progress. Topics such as injury prevention, red flags, and non-negotiables will also be covered.
Axel 301 – Precision and Expectation (Triple Axel, Growth of All Axels and Beyond) will help coaches further develop their strategy as well as challenging the alignment of athlete readiness, wellness, and projected potential. Through this course we will transition basic understanding to working knowledge and practical application. We will prepare for different athlete strengths and weaknesses which every coach encounters and organize jump methodology centered around both accuracy and athlete wellness.
Toe Loop 101 – Foundations (Single toe loop through double toe loop) and will address the basics of this jump, specifically, why so many athletes have difficulty making the transition from single to double free of errors. The major principles of jumping will be explored and again, coaches will further develop their jump methodology. The relationships between biomechanics, physics, and athlete specificity will be discussed. This course concentrates primarily on preparing athletes for success in each of the phases of the jump necessary for completion, mastery, consistency, and ultimate jump reliability.
Toe Loop 201 – Structure and Stability (Double Toe Loop Through Triple Toe Loop) is designed to help coaches develop a sophisticated and methodical approach to imparting their desired jump technique. Various entrances, patterns, and timing will be covered and coaches will be challenged to "choose a path" for several different sample athletes as we continue to cement the understanding of appropriate corrections and overall jump development. Topics such as injury prevention, red flags, and non-negotiables will be covered.
Toe Loop 301 - Precision and Expectation (Triple Toe Through Quad Toe Loop, 3-3 Combinations) will help coaches further develop a strategy for jump progression. We will cover basic physics principles and how forces acting on a jump can affect its efficiency. Non-negotiables and pre-requisites to toe loops in combination will facilitate discussions into athlete readiness, wellness, and projected potential. Through this course, we will transition basic understanding to working knowledge and practical application of triples and quads. We will prepare for different athlete strengths and weaknesses which every coach encounters and organize jump methodology centered around both accuracy and athlete wellness.
Q & A/Review & Collaboration - Join coaches from around the world as we wrap up this series with a special Q & A session, athlete video review, and collaborating on any personal challenges you have faced while building your coaching technique and methodology. Bring your questions, videos of your athletes, and any topics you would like addressed to assist you in your coaching journey.
