Do you consider axels to be double jumps and double axels triple jumps?

My friends and I were debating this a long time ago and I don’t think we ever came to an agreement. I don’t think there’s anything specific in the rulebook that answers this. I personally think axels are doubles and double axels are triples…what do you guys think?

Coming back to figure skating

I started skating when I was 10 years old and quit when I was 16. Now after two years, I want to come back. I used to have a consistent axel and a very shaky double salchow. The problem is now I live 30 minutes away from the nearest ice rink, so I won’t be able to practice much. Does anyone have experience coming back to skating after quitting? How long do you think it would take me to regain my skills?

Any USFSA members here who have actually read the Governing Council Book?

You have to log in to the members only part. Go to the “General Info” tab and then “Governing Council.” There you can find the meeting book with all the proposed changes.I didn’t really read the bits about realigning committees.But the changes to the qualifying structure are definitely going to ruffle feathers.What caught your eye? What changes are you excited/upset/intrigued by?
