MITF Workshop Levels
Topics & Lesson Plans

    The goal of the Moves In The Field (MITF) workshops is to demonstrate the turns and connecting transitions that form the basic foundation of the Moves in The Field tests.

     The focus points of Moves in the Field are:
  • Accuracy
  • Bilateral Movement
  • Continous Flow
  • Power
  • Turn Execution
  • Edge Quality
  • Extension
  • Posture/Carriage
  • Quickness/Rhythm
  • Pattern Layout
     The MITF tests are required prior to taking the same level Free Skating test that is requirred to qualify skaters to enter competition events.
     The lesson plans are designed to have video clips of the technical skills and performance levels of each element. It is our hope to gradually add these resources to the lesson plans as time and funding permits.
