Igor and Marina should win, hands down.
What a great season for them!

I hope that the team of Kiliakov, Ilin & Novak win the best developmental coach award!

It would be funny if Zeva won and not Zueva Spiliband

It's pretty hard to ignore S&Z's results, but I would also love to see Sato and Dunjen recognized for their success with Alissa this year.

I'm guessing Shpilband/Zoueva will be named coach of the year. (Not to discount all of the other coaches on that list) I don't recognize all of the choreographers. Who did Josh Babb choreograph for?
Babb coaches and choreographs for the Skyliners synchro team in New York: http://web.icenetwork.com/skaters/detail.jsp?id=38044&mode=T

Skyliners' blog: http://skylinerssst.blogspot.com/

Skyliners Senior Coaches Josh Babb and Pam May are each nominated as 2011 U.S. Figure Skating/PSA Developmental Coach of the Year Award...
This award is given in recognition of new talent and superior teaching technique for a coach who has a career record of helping athletes develop to higher levels of the sport and as human beings. A nominee for developmental coach must never have had a senior national champion and should be recognized for their work with skaters below the senior level.

Wheaton Ice Skating Academy coaches -- Dmytri Ilin, Alexi Kiliakov and Elena Novak -- are also nominated for Developmental Coaches of the Year -- link to their official site: http://www.wisa.us/index.html

Developmental Coach of the Year nominee Cindy Sullivan and Choreographer of the Year nominee Scott Brown work with US Novice Ladies bronze medalist Mariah Bell and her older sister, Morgan, both of whom competed at 2011 US Nationals -- scroll down for a photo of all 4 of them: http://www.rmfsc.org/MariahBell2011.shtml

Thanks Sylvia. I don't follow synchro so it makes sense that I've never heard of him.

Aside from Tom Z, I'd be happy if any of the coaches on that list won. But I am leaning towards Sato/Dungjen.

And GO Christy Krall! :)

I emailed USFS to protest the inclusion of Tom Z. in light of his skaters skating hurt.

Casey2: The post says the award is given to the coach who has made a "significant impact on an athlete's performance......"

Maybe they are counting the NEGATIVE impact to Rachel and Josh :lol:

You have got to be kidding ? Right Coach of the year in PSA? What in the world would make you think she is worthy of this award?

Maybe because Jason Brown is awesome? And maybe his coach had something to do with that?

Apparently she's not. I didn't see her on the list. ;)
