Figure Skating Safety Equipment Video – Jump Set Ups (Sheila Thelen)

Sheila Thelen discusses more ceiling harness safety issues.  Then she demonstrates common jump setups for use with a ceiling harness.  Setting up jumps under the support wire is a major challenge for most skaters and coaches, at least when they are first getting used to the harness.  Sheila provides tips and patterns that all coaches can use.

    Richelle We have the belt system with one rope that comes up behind the skater's head. A couple of things she mentions in the video are different than what I do. I place myself a little bit ahead of the skater on the jump entrance and I stand on the opposite side than what she does. Those were the instructions that came with the harness and they work for me.

    Vojislava Both harness videos are interesting. It would be nice to see the harness use for butterfly, and the position of coach in it.

    Nathalie, Quebec It would be nice to show a less experimented skater on an harness, and also on other types of harness. (belt)
