skating terms
Skating Terms
  • AXELS – Requires excellent balance and strength. This jump takes off forward off your left foot (outside edge), rotates one and a half times (540 degrees), and lands on your right foot (outside edge) going backwards.
  • CAMEL SPIN — Skater uses his/her free leg, extended in the air in a position parallel to the ice. The body remains in this "spiral" position while spinning.
  • CROSSOVERS —Skaters cross one foot over the other in order to gain speed. There are forward and backward crossovers.
  • EDGES — The two sides of the skate blade .There is an inside edge — the edge on the inner side of the leg — and an outside edge — that on the outer side of the leg. There is a forward and backward for each edge, equaling four different edges .
  • MOHAWK — A turn from forward to backward (or backward to forward), from one foot to the other, each edge forming parts of the same curve.
  • SALCHOW — A jump taken off from the back inside edge of one foot and landed on the back outside edge of the other foot.
  • SPIRAL — Skater skates a straight line while extending his or her non-skating leg behind them into the air during a long glide.
  • TOE LOOP — A toe-pick assisted jump that takes off and lands on the same back outside edge.
