Madison, WI (PRWEB) July 30, 2013
Figure skating video website iCoachSkating.com has just announced a list of its most recently published videos. These educational figure skating videos are appropriate for all figure skating participants, including figure skating coaches, skating parents, youth figure skaters and adult figure skaters. The videos cover such topics as figure skating jumps, figure skating spins, and other figure skating moves.
iCoachSkating.com was launched in 2008 as a response to the lack of high-quality educational material for figure skating coaches on the Internet. Website founder and figure skating coach Trevor Laak created the website as a way to share cutting-edge teaching techniques from some of the best coaches in the world. Subscriptions were initially restricted to figure skating coaches, but access to the website was expanded in 2011 to all figure skating participants. The website has seen steady and continuous growth over the last 5 years according to Laak.
The knowledge and skills required to be a proficient figure skater or figure skating coach is astounding. To meet the needs of coaches and students, the broad array of topics covered by the figure skating videos at iCoachSkating.com is extensive. By design, the iCoachSkating.com faculty has a wide range of figure skating moves and skills, many of the presenters are experts in specific areas of the sport. The faculty includes Olympic coaches Audrey Weisiger, Michelle Leigh, and Frank Carroll.
