What Does It Mean To Be An Adult Skater
Total Articles: 271
What's important for new adult skaters to realize today is that while there are more and more adult skaters getting involved with the sport, each person is capable of different things and attaining different levels of success.
In taking up this sport as an adult, the first thing you'll realize when you take up the sport is that it takes tenacity. Ice skating is not for quitters. After all, it takes guts to get out on the ice and challenge yourself day after day and fall after fall. You literally have to learn how to get up and try again. Sometimes it may take months before getting a particular move – not to mention some bruises. But that's just part of life, on and off the ice…To be able to stick with something no matter what, and see it through to the end.
And, it takes pure guts and being fearless at times. For many kids, getting the axle jump is a defining jump. Axles are the only jump where the take-off is forward, so you are looking straight into the air as you take off—it’s like knowing you are taking the leap off the cliff and actually doing it over and over! As a young competitor, you can move up if you can get your axle but if you can’t, you’re done as a skater. The same is true for adult skaters, it’s a defining jump for us too, because it simply takes guts to learn it. If you can walk and jump in your sneakers on the sidewalk, you can learn the axle, but you must have the guts to accept the inevitability of falling.
So, to all the adult skaters out there, take pride in what you do, because most adults haven't yet developed the tenacity, or guts to get it done. Just stepping onto the ice for the first time takes guts – you're already doing something different. And, if you’re an adult just starting out in the sport, know that you can do anything you set your mind to!
