Ice skating is moving on ice by using ice skaters It can be done for a variety of reasons, including health benefits, leisure, traveling, and various sports. Ice skating occurs both on specially prepared indoor and outdoor tracks.
As a mother, I am truly amazed as what our children now days can do. Juggling between school and their extra curricular activities is not an easy task. We as parents are always behind as to what ever endeavor they want to succeed in. We are always on look out for what we see fit or what could help our children to succeed.
When my children were just starting to know what they want in life, I rely on workshop or summer clinic to help them guide in the preparation of what ever activity they want to pursue. As I was passing by the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, my attention was caught by the presence of children who are attending a 2 Day training camp. The Philippine Union Skating Camp in cooperation with SM Ice Skating International Rink host a 2 Day training camp for kids to further equip and help skaters, hone their skills and become one of the Champions on ice. This event is open to figure skaters as well as amateur skaters who are interested to learn this kind of sports.
The first day focus on the lectures given by sports nutritionist Ms. Nadine Tengco. She explained to the young participants the importance of eating a balanced diet in order for them to keep a fit and healthy disposition while training for figure skating. The children were given talks regarding sports psychology, different sports exercise such as gymnastic, strength and conditioning, Pilates, choreography, plyometrics and performance enhancement by seasoned theatrical actors.
The second day will be filled with lots of fun as the participants get a free ice skating marathon for 1 hour followed by entertaining games and other surprises.
The training was made more fun with souvenir such as T-shirt and other freebies. The event was sponsored by 100 Plus and
Summit, Cherifer, Storland, Bowling and . Science Discovery Center
As I was watching the children enjoy their exercise, I too learned a thing or two from the parents who are there to support their children. It’s not easy to raise a champion, but with a dedicated heart and parent that love and support his child, nothing is impossible. We parents believe that our children are most important treasure in our life and we will give them all the chance for them to succeed. We are just lucky that there are training camps that host event that could help our children along the way.
