Olympic Skating Coach
World and Olympic Coach Frank Carroll will host a figure skating seminar at the RecPlex Ice Arena on Sunday, June 9 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The seminar is structured for competitive skaters working on an axel or higher. During the seminar, skaters will be split into groups by competitive level to focus on: off-ice jumps; moves and edges; stretching; on ice jumps; on-ice spins; a judge’s perspective (International); and a discussion with parents, coaches, skaters and Frank Carroll.

Carroll, a former competitive and later professional skater, also coached Fratianne, Kwan and Lysacek to win the World Figure Skating Championships.
