Flying Sit Spin Tips (Sheila Thelen)

Sheila Thelen offers some insights into the flying sit spin.  Sheila offers a great tip regarding the knees to help develop the feeling of the tuck.  She also notes that many skaters don’t take off with enough rotational energy to rotate properly for the spin or even turn enough in the air for the spin landing.  She also notes that most skaters learning a flying sit will have the urge to slow or stop the rotation when they land and this needs to be overcome immediately to make it spin properly.

Make sure to watch the slow-motion flying sit spins below Sheila’s video.
