RECRUITMENT FOR THE 2019/20 SEASON

We accept female and male figure skaters of all ages!

Recruitment to the teams Euphoria and Olympia is open primarily to skaters of Junior or Senior age. We are already accepting experienced skaters aged 12-26, who have mastered not only technical skills, but also elements of free skating, such as basic jumps and spins.

Even the basics of skating can be learned here with us. For our Minnies team, we are looking for children, who would like to devote their time to the sport and who are suited to it. The ideal age to begin figure skating is 5-7 years. It is also possible to sign-up children who have already mastered the basics – for example, aged 8-11 – who would like to dedicate themselves to a team sport. The recruitment of beginner skaters is possible throughout the whole season.

All of our teams look forward to a training camp with the world-renowned Finnish coach Mirjami Penttinen, which will be held 24-26 May at the ice rink in Nymburk.

Our Senior team Olympia has successfully represented the Czech Republic at the World Championships for 12 years and we believe that next season they will again fight for the best possible world placement in Lake Placid, USA. This year, Olympia placed in the TOP 15, securing 13th place among strong competition.

Open “try-outs” for experienced skaters aged 12-16:

  • Sunday, 5 May and 19 May / 16:45 – 18:15

OLYMPIA

Historically the most successful Senior team in the Czech Republic!

Team Olympia has successfully represented the Czech Republic at the World Championships for 12 years and we believe that next season they will again fight for the best possible world placement in Lake Placid, USA. This year, Olympia placed in the TOP 15, securing 13th place among strong competition.

Starting in 2018/19, the team prepares their programs in cooperation with Siiri Eskleninen, the coach of Finland’s most successful Junior team. Olympia routinely participates in international competitions and all Czech events. It is possible to join the team throughout the season, but the ideal time is during May and June, when the basic preparation for the whole season is in progress (see recruitment).

Join us and become part of the Czech national team!

The head coaches are Kateřina Urbanová and Jitka Mokrá. Others overlooking the team include choreographer Adéla Koubková, dance teacher Natálie Housková and skating skills specialist Barbora Heroldová. The team also regularly collaborates with Mirjami Penttinen, one of the best synchronized skating coaches in the world. In addition, on hand for all teams is physiotherapist and compensation exercise specialist Hana Šurkovská.

EUPHORIA

20 girls, one spirit!

Euphoria currently competes in the Mixed Age division. The team consists of girls aged 12-22 – that is, Junior and Senior age – and even though this may seem a large age difference, they are connected by strong friendships and wonderful teamwork. Euphoria trains 3x per week and the girls attend training camps, work-outs and dance sessions, just like Olympia. Skaters from Euphoria who excel in skating technique are also prepared for possible transfer to the Senior division. We try to prepare the skaters for this goal even from their start in Minnies. We primarily aim for achieving the same skating techniques and feel for synchronization.

The head coach is Kateřina Urbanová and the assistant coach is experienced synchronized skater Megan Ramsay. Ballet training and choreographic assistance is done by Adéla Koubková and skating skills are lead by Barbora Heroldová. Hana Šurkovská runs compensation exercises.

MINNIES

Sport and fun, all in one!

In Minnies, we primarily raise skaters aged 6 and up, who will continue in synchronized skating in the higher categories according to their age. We develop the children’s skating skills so that they are able to skate alone, while at the same time teaching elements of synchronized skating. Finally, last but not least, we develop team players. During the season 2019/20 our coaching team, lead by Jitka Mokrá, will work not only on the children’s skating skills, but also on building a synchro program, with which the team will compete in the Juvenile category.

We believe that your children will experience lots of fun in our team!

Our assistant coaches are Zuzana Heranová, Klára Krejčíčková, ballet teacher and choreographer Adéla Koubková, and compensation exercise specialist Hana Šurkovská. Just like in our other teams, Barbora Heroldová runs skating technique sessions.
