Webinar - Composition
November 7, 2017
PSA and U.S. Figure Skating are pleased to announce the Program Component Competitive Series, a coach-focused webinar series, covering the criteria for each of the five IJS Program Components.
This 4th installment of our 5 Webinar series, “Composition” will cover the 6 criterion used to evaluate composition as a Program Component. Additionally, we will explore ideas on how to translate these criterion into tangible instruction and examine several examples that express the key concepts.
