S.T.A.R.S. and High Performance Movement Screen

Registration opens March 1 for the 2017 S.T.A.R.S. Combine and High Performance Movement Screen, which will be in Walnut Creek on June 24!

Check here for more information- http://www.usfigureskating.org/story?id=83958


S.T.A.R.S. Objectives

  • Promote and enhance athleticism and athletic ability in all young figure skaters through assessment, recognition and opportunity

  • Reduce the rate of injury across all figure skating disciplines and competitive levels

  • Identify skaters who demonstrate exceptional aptitude for athleticism

  • Assist coaches and parents in developing and guiding their skater’s potential

  • Connect skaters, coaches, and parents with qualified strength and conditioning specialists in their region and around the country.

  • Be challenging and fun!


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.

Save the San Mateo Ice Rink

Tonight, the San Mateo Planning Commission will meet to evaluate the current proposal for the Bridgepointe Ice Rink property. We especially need residents of the city of San Mateo to attend. At this meeting, the Planning Commission will vote on SPI’s proposal to change the Bridgepointe Master Plan zoning from ice rink to retail in exchange for SPI paying the City $8 million. This is a significant increase from SPI’s previous $1 million and $3 million offers. This money would be very timely given the current ice rink proposal in Burlingame.

We are recommending that the City accept this offer if:

1) The City takes a tough stance with SPI and not change the zoning until the entire $8 million has been paid; and

2) The City earmark 100% of the $8 million to a new rink in San Mateo County. This would satisfy the intent of the original Bridgepointe Master Plan.

This is the only item on the agenda so please arrive on time:

Tuesday, February 14
730pm
San Mateo City Hall
330 W. 20th Avenue
San Mateo, CA

Also, if you make a public comment, please keep it specific to the proposal at hand ($8 million for an ice rink in exchange for the zoning change). The Commission is well versed in the need for an ice rink and we want to be respectful of their time.

Thanks again for your support and see you on Tuesday night!

Mike Swire and the Committee to Save the San Mateo Ice Rink
