I'm sorry if this thread is rather pointless, I just wanted to share the good news that I just passed my STARSkate (Skate Canada test stream) Preliminary Elements test! I took up figure skating in Steptember 2006, so this took a little more than 2 years. I now get my own solo over the Christmas break and I'll be starting the Axel soon!
So, to everyone who competes and/or tests, I you as I was so nervous during my test that my coach kept telling me just to breathe LOL. and well, obviously, I did the most amazing scratch spin I'd ever done (even the other coach there commented on how great it was!), and I usually travel on it, except that the shock made me miss the following 3 spins. My backspin and forward sit barely passed, and well my coach and I knew I couldn't do a camel spin anyways. Any tips for that one?
