Figure Skating Edges: Backward Circle Eights Pattern – Pre-Juvenile Moves (Karen Heng Olson)

Karen Heng Olson explains the Backward Circle Eights pattern for the U.S. Figure Skating Pre-Juvenile Moves in the Field test. Karen demonstrates the moves and talks about it as she demonstrates it.  Notice the technique used and strength of the pushes.  Karen discusses the order of movements and how the movements should be narrow and controlled.

Karen offers a great drill for getting used to the proper preparation for the pushes.  This is a simple drill that skaters can use to develop the proper muscle memory for the pushes in the pattern.  Notice the knee action as well as the turn-in of the skating foot as she shows more pattern pushes.
