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.
