We all know that School Figures was and still is the Foundation for Figure Skating. This is evident as we've watched Figures being reintroduced to Moves-in-the-Field. The IJS is calling for well defined and clear entry edges into jumps, footwork sequences, and spins. School Figures trained us to really understand and use edges for clarity and definition. There are so many other reasons to Bring Back Figures and we invite anyone who is interested in signing this petition to state their reasoning "comment box" provided when signing the petition. Let's see if there is enough interest and turn out to present this petition to USFS Governing Council for consideration.
Figures are the sports history and founding basics. They are the quickest and best way to help skaters understand how their skate works and how to control their body. Practicing figures promotes learning about edges, flow, balance and control, and trains the whole body. Figures help skaters to understand basic bio-mechanical, geometrical and mathmatical principles, exploring and controlling movement over the ice. Practicing figures encourages discipline and is challenging on a personal improvement and competitive level. Figures promote concentration levels and other neurological and physical skills in a peaceful and harmonious environment. In short - I love them ! and want others to gain from the joy that is FIGURE skating.
Figures are amazing, they taught me so much and the hours I spent learning them were the best . Our future skaters need to learn them they so essential
Figures are the making of great basic skating and control of edges and footwork, it has not been the same without them, please bring them back!!!!
