Getting close up with Kurt
On November 22, 2013, the James Bay Region of Skate Canada Northern Ontario organized a skater development seminar held at the Archie Dillon Sportsplex in Timmins.
More than 80 skaters and coaches from the James Bay Region attended to learn from two superstars in the skating world: Kurt Browning and Doug Haw.
Doug Haw, originally from Cochrane Ontario, is a world class coach having trained skaters who compete at both the National and World Level. Kurt Browning, who needs no introduction, is a four time National and World Champion is one of the creative minds behind Battle of the Blades and Stars on Ice.
Twenty Skaters and six coaches from the Kapuskasing Figure Skating Club participated in the seminar. During the day, there were on ice sessions with Kurt and Doug focusing on Edges, Jumps and Spins.
It was truly a privilege to learn from Doug who is an incredible coach and complete gentlemen, and Kurt who dazzles with his footwork and amazes with his jumps.
