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

    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.

    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?

    She's on the second list. Developmental.

    If Tom Z wins anything, we know that he's greased the system. Of course, they could have a new category "Most Successful Bully"

    I like Ade a lot too, and would be happy to see her win Developmental Coach of the Year, although the problem with this type of thing is that there are often a lot of people I'd be happy to see win.

    Tom Z should win the Lemon Prize for coaches. Also - best push-ups in a Kiss n' Cry!

    Kori Ade came on strong with Jason. Should win for Developmental.

    Christy Krall would be perfect for the technical coaching award (4th award on the list).

    Marina & Igor for choreography, as well as for Coaches of the Year.

    Nice tone. I didn't say coach of the yr..I know that there are categories. I read the criteria for the developmental coach of the yr and I think that Kori fits it nicely.

    Does the PSA give out a seperate set of awards to ISI coaches? A local coach said he was up for a developmental coach of the year award at this week's conference.

    Ahh I wouldn't go that far. She has been lucky with the talent she came across, I would say manager of the year because she is good at getting other people to help her with her students. Coaching actually requires you to know something about stuff like jumps.

    Wow, what did she ever do to you? I don't know her personally, but since (according to her bio) she is PSA-rated in moves and freestyle, I think she knows a bit more about skating than you are suggesting.

    Who the f*** are you? Your username is "dupagegal," so you're from the Illinois area, like Ade herself? That's interesting. Sounds like a great opportunity to trash someone you don't like, to me.
