Ratings and Reviews
Not for coaches!!
Could be good for beginner skaters for a couple weeks but only a few elements for each level are covered. Bought it because of the promo that came with the rule book, thought it had to do with the rule book or to assist me as a professional somehow... But no. Not happy and glad it was only $2.
Excellent Supplement to Group Lessons
I completed Adult 2-6 and this app was super helpful when practicing during public skating sessions. There is no substitute for an actual coach, but this app was a great reference outside of lessons.
This app has been recently updated to reflect the revised USFS Adult 1-6 curriculum instead of Adult 1-4. All of the videos have been redone, and the minor bugs mentioned in older reviews have been smacked. This is not a substitute for a coach, of course, but as a slow-learning adult skater I love being able to see all of the basic skills demonstrated. The verbal descriptions of the skills are also incredibly helpful.
