Running a Remote Off-Ice Program – Part 1 (Lorie Charbonneau)

In this video, iCoachSkating founder Trevor Laak interviews International coach Lorie Charbonneau about the remote off-ice program she has set up for her skaters and coaches during the coronavirus lockdown. International coach Chris Conte who is part of Lorie’s team also offers insights during this chat.

Proactive coaches like Lorie and Chris are actively engaging with their skaters, trying to maintain basic schedules, offering a range of relevant instruction, and providing some normalcy in the coach-skater relationship. Coaches can learn a lot from Lorie’s approach during this trying time.

In Part 1, Lorie shares her background and some information about her program in Bloomington, MN (near Minneapolis). Then she discusses her thought process and mindset when trying to design a program for her skaters and coaches during this lockdown period. She had to consider the different skating levels within her program, as well as the limitations of teaching remotely. There’s lots of gems in this discussion for other coaches to implement with their own skaters.
