Tryouts will be recorded for reviewing purposes only.
Skaters should treat the tryout like a competition: skating dress, hair neat, etc)
All Tryouts are CLOSED
Varsity Individual: Skater will skate their current freestyle program, needs clean landed axel, strong edges, and tryout footwork
Varsity Synchro: Tryout footwork only. Needs to show strong edges, control, speed, correctness of foot positions. REQUIREMENT: passed pre-juv moves in the field.
The coaches pick who is on what team based on safety, skating ability, strength, etc. If a skater has passed requirements needed for a certain team it is NOT a guarantee of team placement.
Placements are made for what is best for the team and all skaters involved.
New Tardy Policy
LATE means late on the ice
First Late Offense: Warning
Second Late Offense: 10 Laps
Third or More Late Offense(s): Letter Point Taken Away
If you don’t show up to practice and not let Rachelle know you will lose a letter point.
Team events: (team comp, production, all ice show numbers) Skater is only able to miss one practice. If more than one practice is missed the skater will not be able to skate in that number.
The coaches want skaters and parents driving to be safe on the roads! Please obey traffic rules while coming to practice. Being late is far better than being injured.
If you are going to be late, Please inform Coach Rachelle (text preferred). DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE
Team vs Individual Skating
Parents and skaters are familiar with getting one on one attention from their skating coach. That's what their coach is paid to do.
Adjusting rules and ice time for the skater to fit their schedule and needs.
Coaches are expecting to get an email about the things they don’t like about the training plan so they can obtain individual goals in a timely manor.
Being on a team:
Rules are rules, NO exceptions and NO special attention.
REMEMBER this is a high school lettering program.
Coaches are not expecting an email as to whether or not the training plan fits the individual skater. The plan the coaches make are for the best of the team.
Text Rachelle if you will be late.
Middle School has the only exception for tardy practice (no need for a text)
For all individual practices: Skater can opt to skate on their club ice for a lesson with their freestyle coach. Skater MUST have permission by Rachelle to skip practice for a lesson.
If injured, skater must still come to practice to watch so they do not miss anything.
Being sick, school concert/function, and family emergency are all excused from the Tardy Policy. Having a doctor appointment is NOT excused. Please arrange your appointments around your skating schedule. Please note that if you are home sick you cannot come to practice.
