PDO Challenge – October – Skill Development Sessions

Given the importance of skater engagement and motivation in clubs and skating schools, we have set up a province-wide challenge to highlight the amazing Performance and Development Opportunities (PDOs) you are offering.

This month we are challenging clubs/skating schools to offer a Skill Development Session in your club!

These sessions develop and focus on technical fundamentals and quality skill development.

Examples of possible session topics include:

Off-ice:
-Jump technique
-Spin positions
-Landing positions
-Off-ice harness
-Flexibility training

On-ice:
-Jump technique
-Spin technique
-Edge work
-Landings
-Dance
-Power/speed
…and many more!

How it works:

  • Plan and run your PDO
  • Share a picture or short video of your PDO using Facebook or Instagram. Tag us @SkateOntario and use #PDOChallenge.
  • Tell us why your session was meaningful for your skaters

There will be a random draw to select a winner for the Skate Ontario prize pack!
