Silent Coach Inspires Figure Skating Coaches:

The Silent Coach figure skating training aid makes it possible for skating coaches to not have to yell across the rink as they teach skating lessons. Some coaches have said that using Silent Coach has made teaching skating more enjoyable.

How Silent Coach Works:

Silent Coach attaches to a figure skater's arm or leg with a velcro strap. The coach controls vibrations with a small remote as the skater skates. The device provides a coach with a way to remind students about their most common mistakes during lessons.

For example, a figure skating coach no longer has to verbally tell his or her student over again to keep an arm in front, to straighten a free leg, to point a toe, to turn out a foot, etc.
