posted Jul 3, 2021, 9:14 AM
Hello July and welcome IESC summer camps in the ice rink! Where you can have fun and still reach for the stars, set your goals and train to be the best version of your self!
The Long Term Athlete Development Plan (LTADP) from Skate Canada recommends the following:
7-11 years old skate 2-4 days a week 30-40 weeks a year
9-13 years old skate 4-5 days a week 1-2 sessions a day 40-46 days a week
10-16 years old skate 5 days a week 2-3 sessions a day 44-48 hours a week
See where your skater fits under the age category and choose a summer package that can help your skater train the recommended number of hours, with the support of coaches who know exactly how to inspire and motivate them! So that this summer is not just a season to let the time slip by and for sweet summer treats, but to also feel the sweet taste of success!
Skating is a sport that has four disciplines your skater can work on:
So, our summer camp packages were created for skaters who have different goals they want to achieve in skating. Typically package A is for skaters who want to work on all four areas and would like to one day achieve gold tests. Package B is for skaters to focus on two areas of skating. Package C is for one area of skating and package D is for a skater wanting to learn to skate or get out and exercise in a cold rink this summer.
Figure Skating is a sport that requires fine motor skills to be trained at certain windows of physical development. The summer camp is run four consecutive weeks to help the skaters make achievements along the way.
The Skate Canada programing is designed to be able to achieve gold tests in all four disciplines. Our coaches have achieved this! And now, with over 100 years of their combined coaching experience in helping skaters achieve their gold tests, provided you follow the recommendations for hours of training from Skate Canada and weeks in the year to train, your skaters can become the best version of themselves and achieve success also. If your skater has this goal, they need to look at skating constantly throughout the year.
Now that our province has moved to Stage 3 of the Open for Summer Plan, we can move forward to skate consistently and start setting goals and achieving them! So, register with us and stay on track with your training!
