To perform like a champion you need to practice like a champion.
“each practice takes you one step closer or one step further away from achieving everything you want on the ice”.
This means that each practice counts so you want to make sure you are physically, mentally, and emotionally present when you step on the ice. Knowing this, how do you create productive practice?
Expand Your Practice Comfort Zone
1. Change your warm up – spins before jumps, jumps in a different order (i.e.. lutz -> axel)
2. Practice your routine starting from the other end of the ice.
Set Practice Goals
1. What do i want to achieve on this 1 hour practice?
2. How long will I work on each goal?
3. How will I know when I have achieved it?
4. How will I feel when I have achieved it?
Create a Plan of Action
Remember when you set BIG GOALS you need to create BIG ACTION STEPS that will guarantee your success.
BIG DREAMS = BIG GOALS = BIG ACTION STEPS
BIG ACTION STEPS aren’t always the easiest and most comfortable. Examples of BIG ACTION STEPS include: adding 3 days/week of off-ice jumps, arriving at the rink for practice 30 minutes early to warm-up, practicing visualization 5 days/week, hiring a Performance Coach, like me, to TRAIN YOUR MIND!

“My daughter just finished the 8 week Mind-Body Performance Coaching Program. We’ve noticed a huge improvement in her training and performance. We also noticed our daughter becoming more confident and landing all of her jumps. My daughter used to pop a lot of jumps and circle and Rebekah broke down that habit. I Can’t thank you enough Rebekah for everything you’ve done! When I see my daughter skate I see a very confident and assertive skater. Rebekah teaches the skater to let go of anything that’s holding them back. I would not hesitate to recommend her or refer her. She’s GOLD and worth every penny! We look forward to working with her for many more years!” – Mother of Ottawa Skater
