I was thinking more like what the US Olympic Committee is suggesting. Keeping one coach with a "pod" of athletes and that pod trains together. Not so much like Learn To Skate where there are a bunch of little kids all doing swizzles at one time, but one coach at wall with her/his 5 or 6 skaters on ice, working on what needs to be worked on, more like a one-room schoolhouse. There could be some overlap, maybe if two kids working on single flip, two on double, etc. I would assume in that situation, costs could be cut a bit because it's not truly private. The other benefit is that if anyone in the pod gets ill, only that group might have to quarantine, depending....Small group lessons would seem to be incompatible with social distancing. Unless/until a vaccine or effective treatment is developed, the emphasis should be on keeping skaters (and coaches) as far apart as possible.
Unless we're saying there's no coaching at all until a vaccine. That's different.
You're probably right. This whole thing just rests like a Rubik's cube in my head, trying to figure out solutions. It stops me from falling into deep pits of despair.
