We then bought a kit from Fleet Farm for installing grommets on an old towel. To hang the towel on the PVC we installed some hooks.

Make sure that you have a way to hook it to a garden hose. We ...

This year I decided to do an artistic program to "How Far I'll Go" from Moana. After seeing the movie, I knew that this was a program I wanted to do. I decided to try it out at our local competition first. At the competition, it just so happened that 41 people were doing an artistic program. If you don't know excactly how artistic works, here is a basic explanation. The first round is split by level. In the first round there are recall judges (who have no skating experience) and skating ...

Almost every day we had an off-ice harness and workout class. We took turns on the ...

QOTD: There is nothig you can't do, if you set your mind to it. Anything is possible! - Rick Hanson


First, you should know that it took me six months to land. It didn't happen overnight. Determination is key, and you have to want it bad! You can't just say "Yeah, I want to land my axel" and not work hard for it. I will tell you straight forward it's not easy and takes a while to land.
If you are working on axels right now, here five drills that I found helpful.
