What's NewThe falling & recovery bug was REALLY squashed this time. We promise!
App DescriptionNOTE - All videos can be played in SLOW_MOTION! Just pause the video once it starts, and then hold down the fast forward button or the reverse button and VOILA! This is a little known trick in iOS! Enjoy!
U.S. Figure Skating, the premier source for all things figure skating, has teamed up with Rink Tank Interactive to bring you the ' U.S. Figure Skating Skate Coach' app series for iPhone & iPod Touch. This app will work on the iPad as well, but the app is not Universal. We are working hard on the U.S. Figure Skating Skate Coach for iPad master edition which will be optimized for the iPad so check back soon!
NOTE: The bug displaying the wrong video for falling & recovery has been squashed! The app should display all skills normally.
The Skate Coach app series was designed to help skaters, parents, instructors and officials understand the standards set for the Basic Skills Program through the use of high definition video examples. A special thank you to Crystal Roe for her hard work in preparing the demo videos, as well as Jim Beyer, Bridget Kaus & Elizabeth Fiore of Polar Ice for their generous assistance with ice time!
The Adult 1-4 app is designed for the beginner adult skater. The goal is to promote fitness & improve balance and coordination while learning proper skating techniques.
Whether in the comfort of your own home, traveling to the rink or during practice, you will always have a Skate Coach in your pocket!
DISCLAIMER: Participating in ice skating has inherent risks, but with good technique and sound equipment these risks are mitigated. While the Skate Coach app series provides examples of skills performed correctly, they are NOT meant to supplement professional skating instruction! Improper use of the Skate Coach apps could result in bodily harm! Please do not attempt these maneuvers while holding an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad on the ice. U.S. Figure Skating and Rink Tank Interactive are not responsible for injuries resulting from (direct or indirect) use of these apps.
