Scott Davis Camp 2015
The Sydney Figure Skating Club (SFSC) organised a camp with Scott Davis at Canterbury Olympic Ice Rink from Monday the 2nd of February to Friday the 6th of February this year.
Scott was a US representative at the 1994 Winter Olympics, a gold medallist at the 1993 and 1994 US National Championships and Olympic coach, and specialises in high performance coaching of competitive skaters.
Skaters were divided into 4 groups, dependent upon their skating level. In general, each skater had the opportunity to participate in 5 group lessons, which tended to concentrate on stroking and jumps, one group lesson which concentrated on spins and one power and one off-ice session. Each of these group sessions were one hour in length. There was also the opportunity to attend a one hour technical talk for skaters, parents and coaches, as well as the ability to have 20 minute private lessons with Scott.
Overall, 66 skaters attended the camp and, whilst the majority were SFSC members, a small number of skaters participated from Liverpool, Macquarie and Penrith clubs.
Skaters Astrid and Jasmine said “We really enjoyed the camp with Scott, as he was very positive and encouraging, and showed us new exercises which helped us with our jumps. It would be great to see Scott again at the rink.”
