App DescriptionU.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!
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 Tammy Jaminez, Harrison Sokol, Roxanne Johnson & Christine Wiley for helping with the demonstrations, as well as Jim Beyer & Elizabeth Fiore of Polar Ice for their generous assistance with ice time!
The Special Olympics 1-12 app was designed to help skaters, parents, instructors and officials get a better understanding of the skating standards of the Special Olympics badge program.
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!
