Double Flip Lesson (Audrey Weisiger)

World and Olympic coach Audrey Weisiger gives a fast-paced double flip lesson to a skater who can land the jump but is having problems with consistency and air position. Audrey covers a lot of ground and touches on jump direction, arm timing and movement, head anchoring, and reaching for the ice.

One of the drills Audrey uses is a single flip where the skater tries to make ankle contact in the air. This skater really struggles with this, and more time and effort on this would probably help the air position on the double. Audrey also focuses on movement of the axis arm (right arm for this skater) rather than the pulling of the non-axis arm. Also notice the use of walk-throughs, slow attempts on the hockey line (which Audrey refers to as “jumps from a standstill”), and full speed attempts in program position.
