Tatyana Volosozhar is one of the most titled figure skaters in our country: Honored Master of Sports of Russia, Olympic champion in 2014, champion of Europe and Russia. She is also the mother of 3-year-old Angelica and the ideological inspirer, creator and head coach of the Ice Center for children from three years old, which will open its doors very soon. Especially for Eva.Ru, Tatiana told when it is better to put children on the ice, which skates to choose and how not to put pressure on the child, but also not to let the classes take their course. I started earlier - I learned faster. This is not true! Now children are put on the ice very early: at 2-3 years old, but I am still a supporter of starting to get acquainted with this sport at 3.5-4 years old, when it will be safer for the child - it is at this age that we focus in our Tatiana Volosozhar's Figure Skating Center. The most important thing is how the child first skated. Even if it will be an outdoor skating rink in a park for mass skating, it is very important that there is a person nearby who will help prepare the equipment in advance. Good skates are the key to not only success, but also health. You need to pay attention to them first of all and not spare your finances. Poorly selected or low-quality equipment can cause irreparable damage to the child's health: improper load on the foot and joints will lead to the fact that the likelihood of injury will increase significantly. For different loads, different blade shapes, degree of sharpening, fixation force, lift height, heel and even the appearance of an ice shoe are used. The main functionality is the same for all - they provide sliding on frozen water or an artificial surface. But individual characteristics allow in some to twist the sheepskin coats, and in others - to enter sharp turns with a club in hand. An incorrectly matched pair can cause injury or serious injury if dropped, slipped or braked. For example, last year, for the first time, I had the experience of open lessons on skating rinks in parks, where children came to audition for our section. I looked at these skates and understood that here it is possible to discourage the child from all the desire to practice from the first day precisely because of the discomfort. There was a girl on the ice, the oldest of all those who came, probably about six years old. It was noticeable that she was trying very hard and wanted to learn how to skate well, but she couldn't. Throughout the training session, I tried to understand what was wrong and how to help her. As a result, my gaze fell down - on the skates - and I realized that they were the main reason. The poor child's legs were "X", and his knees collided with each other, not allowing a normal ride. Parental supervision Looking back at the past methods of instilling a "love" for sports in children, I certainly do not want to see the same harsh moral pressure and parental interference in training now. When I was little, mothers always stood along the rink, threateningly watched the process and showed you their fist if something did not work out, although they did not even understand why this was happening. Now this is being suppressed, but it is still present. Such pressure can greatly harm the child, and the desire to study will disappear from him forever. In our "Figure Skating Center" we plan to introduce open lessons for parents, but not every day: the child's progress will not be visible in the way in which it can be seen once a week or month. Not always the methods that your friends mom-friends or on the forums on the Internet advise you will work for your child.The kid copies adults, and we ourselves must be an example - then it will be much easier to find understanding between the child and the parents. Not by force! Strong-willed character and desire to win are the essential qualities of any professional athlete. It is possible and necessary to educate them, but not on the part of their parents. Sport will do it for you. I have often observed that it is parents who force children to engage in this or that sport, and we would like to instill a love for this child, so that he really likes it. To do this, you need to introduce figure skating, and teach you how to take the first steps correctly - now few people pay attention to this, they immediately demand the result, and it is important to tell how to choose the right equipment, to understand the categories. I don't think pressure and toughness are good guides to the world of sports. A parent who wants their child to love and really get excited about figure skating should try to come up with and practice more creative ways to get involved in the class. For example, if you are going to gymnastics or ballet, then you can think of in what form you go together today: white or black, bright or patterned. It is necessary to instill a responsible attitude to the business in which the child will be engaged in small details. And to bring them into any sport and make them do it out of the way is wrong. Motivation "faster, higher, stronger" appears already in the process of the training itself, and this is for the most part the coach's task.
