The forward and backward crossover move has been condensed. The skater performs two circles forward in a figure eight pattern, does an open mohawk and continues with two circles in a backward figure eight. This cuts the time in half for the previous two moves.
In response to much many comments from coaches and skaters for moves based on figures, we're adding a forward figure eight pattern that combines both the basic forward outside and forward inside figure eights. This move lays an early foundation for the skater to understand proper use of edge and body control on the forward edges.
The alternating backward crossovers to backward outside edges is being cut to one length of the ice.
