    Based on her posting history, this one doesn't like Tanith either, to put it mildly. How did she manage to offend you - outskate your daughter somehow?

    This thread is not the first time this member has made disparaging comments about Kori. I have met Kori and know several skaters who have found their lessons with her extremely helpful. And, yes, these lessons included jumps. Clearly there is more to the snipping than we know; reads like insecurity to me.

    Kori is a wonderful example of the future of coaches. I find her great and genuine.

    dupagegal doesn't like anybody. Her tone in every thread is extremely negative.

    Good thing FSU has the "ignore" option. :cool:

    :blah:
    Have you taught anybody extensively? Or been taught?
    A huge percentage of mentoring somebody young consists of pacing them, helping them find their individuality and not killing their love for the subject (sport, music, whatever). If on top of that a person can ask advice from people who know better and not let ego get in the way- that person learns, the student learns, everybody wins. If your complaints about Kori is that she could recognize the talent when she saw it, guided it wisely and asked others to help when she could not, putting the student first- well, the developmental coach award is right in front of my eyes.

    Somebody else also might be deserving; but the point is your "criticism" only compliments what Kori did.

    OK, I've heard unofficially that Kori Ade won USFS/PSA's Developmental Coach of the Year award. In addition to coaching Jason Brown to an impressive 9th place Senior debut at Nationals (and a 7th place finish at Junior Worlds), another student of hers, Jordan Moeller, won the Novice Men's silver medal.

    ETA: And Igor Shpilband and Marina Zoueva reportedly did win the Coach of the Year award, as expected. :)

    Hooray for Kori! I was hoping Yuka and Jason would win but Igor and Marina do deserve it.

    Oh, yeah, I'd have loved for it to go to Yuka and Jason, too, but I can see the obvious argument for Igor and Marina.

    Congrats to Frank Carroll for the Ritter Shumway award - well deserved: "Presented to a person in the skating world who has earned distinction for unending dedication and significant contribution to the world of figure skating." :cheer:

    And :cheer: that a photo of Michelle's sprial wins for photo of the year!

    And Yuka got the Sonja Henie award.

    Josh Babb - this is the first time a synchro coach has been nominated for one of these awards, yes? That's a big deal.

    Tom Z has already won this award, so it likely won't be him (the year he had Jeremy, Ryan, and Brandon in the the top 4 at nationals for men and Rachael either first or second for the women). The coaches usually win according to their skaters' placements so I would say Zoueva/Shpilband and Christy Krall are shoe-ins.

    Congrats to all the winners - especially KORI!

    I was also kinda hoping for Yuka and Jason, but can't deny that it's been Igor and Marina's year

    I thought the development coach could not have a skater who won a national title - does that mean a senior title? Jason Brown won the 2010 Junior Men's title.

    Criteria:
    Her outstanding coaching this year was Jason's performances in Seniors, right? ... :shuffle: Don't get me wrong, I'm happy she won. I've never seen Moeller skate but I absolutely loved Jason Brown's skating.

    I think the rule only applies to national champions at the senior level. Plus, Jason has been skating at the junior level internationally all season long.

    I think national champion is only senior -- they actually call it "Championship Ladies" "Championship Dance"... in the USFSA schedules.

    Interesting... Anyway, the future (e.g. Jason Brown´s further development as a skater and competitor) will show how good - or not so good - she is as a coach.
