INTRODUCING THE U.S. FIGURE SKATING HIGH PERFORMANCE MOVEMENT SCREEN (HPMS)
The HPMS is a group of evaluations designed to give athletes, coaches and parents information in three key areas: mobility, stability and symmetry. The screen is designed to assess movement patterns in figure skaters to identify and treat mechanics that may prohibit optimal performance. The tests included are valid and reliable to assess mobility and stability in the lower extremity as well as a baseline test for concussion. Tests include the y-balance test, single leg squat, rotary stability, shoulder mobility, hip mobility and the balance error scoring system. The goal of the program is to minimize the risk of injury and maximize performance. Participating athletes receive a one-on-one screening completed by a physician, physical therapist or certified athletic trainer. Each athlete receives a detailed report flagging areas of concern as well as a thorough explanation of exercises and resources to correct flagged areas
The 2017 CCIA Competition Calendar is now up for your planning purposes on http://www.ccia-figureskating.org/index.php/calander
As we receive more information through the year, this calendar will be updated, so check back periodically.
