Skatetown Ice Arena Coach Awarded Four  U.S. Figure Skating Gold Medals

Congratulations to figure skating coach Chris Kinser for passing the Senior Solo Free Dance Gold test!  Chris is now a Quadruple Gold Medalist with gold medals in Freeskate, Moves in the Field, Dance and Solo Free Dance.  This is a huge accomplishment!!  USFS Skaters test in moves in the field, free skating, pairs and ice dancing.  As a skater advances, the tests become more difficult. The highest achievement in each discipline is passing the senior, also called "gold," test. When a skater passes a gold test, he or she earns the designation "U.S. Figure Skating gold medalist." 

Becoming a U.S. Figure Skating gold medalist is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication to the sport. In a typical year, approximately 40,000 U.S. Figure Skating test levels are completed by athletes; of those, about 1,300, or 3 percent, are at the gold or senior level.

Chris is also Skatetown’s newest employee coach, joining the coaching staff in April.  He has both competed and coached skaters at the USFS Regional and Sectional levels in dance and freestyle.  Chris has been coaching for 10 years and is a member of the Professional Skaters Association, United States Figure Skating and Ice Skating Institute.
