USFSA has posted their TV schedule for this season.Has anybody had any luck watching anything on the Olympic Channel? All I’m finding is the fluff bits. Do you have to pay to access the actual competitions?Only being able to watch it live is also annoying. Why is there no other option besides crappy IceNOTwork?

Any tips for backwards edges?

So I’ve basically mastered my forwards inside and outside edges, and have started working on the backwards ones…and boy they are struggling.I can’t seem to even do them shakily – my free leg is all over the place and so is my position, like leaning forwards a lot and wobbling around. My coach wants me to have the first half of the edge be with toe to heel position, not my leg sticking out behind me.I think with the forwards edges I could at least stand up somewhat straight and stay centered, but I can’t find that calmness with backwards.I’m struggling to actually get on an edge too, when I look at the trails in the ice it’s more of just a flat, I guess the turning is just coming from me leaning.Any tips? ;_;
