    And Marina and Igor, the obvious choices.

    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.

    I can confirm Kori Ade's and S&Z's awards.

    I listed the award winners that I could remember here:

    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."

    And 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
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    Awards are meaningless to me, and I have nothing but disdain for anyone who actively campaigns to get one.

    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:
    2011 U.S. Figure Skating/PSA Developmental Coach of the Year Award

    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 national champion and should be recognized for their work with skaters below the senior level.
    Her outstanding coaching this year was Jason's performances in Seniors, right? ... 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.
