    ^ What about Danielle Kahle?

    I really liked her style and her jumps when I saw her last at nationals, but I haven't heard about her since.

    Kahle hasn't been coached by Carroll since the 2007-2008 season (when she last made Nationals and placed 12th). Her last international was Finlandia Trophy in October 2008 and Charlene Wong was her coach there, as well as at Sectionals in November 2008 (also Sectionals in November 2009? she was 6th). I haven't heard if she is planning to continue competing.

    Laney was judging at the All Year Competition a few weekends back.

    Danielle is coaching at Easy Street Arena (well, now it's the Simi Valley Iceoplex) in Simi Valley, CA. She's not competing anymore, as far as I know. She coached one of my group classes a few months ago, heh.

    :(........... I loved her skating. Hopefully, she'll bring some good skaters up into the ranks.

    I spoke with Laney at the All Year Club competition (not GW, Club comp) where she was judging (you can have anyone judge at a Club comp, it's not USFSA sanction and AY uses this as a way to start or try new potential judges). Laney said that she is going to UC Berkeley (Cal) this coming school year and will continue to skate some (a few times per week), but will be concentrating on her studies.

    Best of luck to her. I hope that she comes back on to the skating scene, once she feels comfortable with her new academic career.
  7. Nah, the actual skating is more like 3 hours a day. In Oberstdorf Tomas had sessions of 1.5 or 1 hour, and then 2 or 3 a day.

    but of course there is the warm-up, stretching, off ice training, ballet, dance class etc.

    So on Yuna's ISU bio, when it says 48 hours/week, it doesn't mean that she's actually SKATING for 8 hours a day, 6 days a week? That would maybe be too much skating. But what else would she be doing? Would it be like skating for 4 hours, cardio for 1 hour, weights/personal trainer for 1 hour, stretching for 1 hour, and like a dance class for 1 hour? That would be 8 hours. Seems like these skaters do a lot of extra stuff in addition to skating.
  9. I don't know about Yu-na, but Tomas usually has ballet, Modern dance, stretching, powertraining, balance, cardio, warm-up, cooling down...stuff like that... in addition to the skating. But not everything every day, and in summer the off ice activities are a lot more intense than in the season. (atleast, in the past, in Oberstdorf...)

    don't forget that warm up and cooling down also take some time...and if you have 3 sessions a day...

    Oh cool, that sounds like a lot of fun/intense stuff! As for Yuna, I kind of doubt she skates for 8 hours a day, I think I saw a video where the announcer said she's on the ice for about 3 or 4 hours a day. I assume she does all that other stuff as well, there's a youtube video of her doing hip hop dance, she's really good at it :)!

    I would assume she trains for 7-8 hours a day total. So that's skating plus all the off ice stuff.

    Kristine Musademba's USFS/Icenetwork bio has been updated, and it lists her new coaches as Frank Carroll, Ken Congemi and Christa Fassi. Her club is still listed as Washington FSC (South Atlantic region).

    Doesn't appear that Frank will be retiring any time soon!

    So Congemi is back coaching? Didn't he walk away from it for a year or two?

    That's a lot of highly priced coaches to be on one's payroll at any one time :eek:.

    I, too, was surprised to see Congemi's name.

    Unless Frank's raised his rates dramatically since Evan's Olympic win, he's not THAT high priced (as in I knowcoaches with way less credentials than Frank has who charge a whole lot more). Frank's not as low as Priscilla Hill, now, but he's still in the reasonable hourly rate range.

    Mirai Nagasu's coaches are listed in her USFS bio as "Frank Carroll, Ken Congemi, Galina Barinova, Sondra Holmes." It's pretty common for skaters to have one or more secondary coaches in Southern California because of the different rinks they often must travel to and train at.

    The summer training camp at the El Segundo rink (Toyota Sports Center) has just ended, and Frank Carroll is moving his coaching base back up the mountain to Ice Castle in Lake Arrowhead.

    Wow. Another girl for Eastern's who moved to Carroll. Well, this will free up the Eastern section even more!

    Not if she still represents the Eastern club.

    As I posted above, Musademba still lists her club as Washington FSC, so it remains to be seen if she will be competing at South Atlantic or Southwest Pacific Regionals. Her Cup of China GP assignment does give her a bye through her Sectional, though.

    Between that and his willingness to work with skaters of all levels, something I learned from the Manleywoman Skatecast, that makes me like Frank even more. I hope someday to have a lesson with him.

    Oh, I see. However, can't some skaters obtain permission to compete in a different region if their main training base is located there? It seems unlikely that Kristine would fly home just to compete at Eastern Sectionals. Now that I think about it....Pacific Coast Sectionals are also full of talent...Dobbs, Diggs, Gong, Kawamura, Zhang, Zhou, Lam, Davis..etc.

    Sylvia just posted 2 above you that Kristine has a bye through sectionals so she won't need to compete there.
  25. Jenna

    Jenna Well-Known Member

    Oh. I thought she meant that she had a bye TO her sectional not through it. ;)

    No, you have to skate in the region your club is in. But it's easy enough to change clubs if she wanted to skate out of Pac Coast.

    Not sure about that one. I recall a skater a few years ago skating at North Atlantics and representing the Skating Club of Boston.

    ETA: Ahh....here she is. Rachel Hoang (SCOB) skated in Juvenile Girls CIR B.


    So there must be some rule about this.
  28. 2sk8

    2sk8 Active Member

    There is a different rule for Juvenile & Intermediate skaters in the US (who advance to Junior Nationals) - basically, they can compete in the region of their home address or their primary training location. Sounds like Rachel might have been in that situation. It's home club for Novice, Junior & Senior skaters.
  29. Sylvia

    Sylvia Prepping for club comp. season!

    Yes, it's Rule 3102 in the USFS rulebook.

    As was said, Juvenile and Intermediate have a different system. I didn't bring them into it so as not to complicate things. :D

    Basically, they have to skate out of the region they are training in.
