2017 Great Lakes International Skate Camp

Nov. 10 - 13, 2017

The 2017 Great lakes International Skate Camp is just around the corner. Beginning Friday November 10th and ending Monday November 13th, this is the Premier skate camp in the USA. Located in friendly Warsaw, Indiana, participants can attend as few or as many days as they can. This is a freestyle and figure camp, with the primary focus on freestyle. It is open to skaters and coaches of all ages and ability. Learn more on what to do in the area at: www.koscvb.org


Freestyle training begins Friday morning and will be all four days. Figure training will begin early Saturday morning and run through Monday morning. Figure training will be a total of 9-10 hours on floor.


So the big question, who are the coaches? Our freestyle leader this year is Leonardo Lienhard. Leonardo is a former World Champion, and has served as a National Team Coach for a combined total of 25 years for Italy, Germany and Columbia. After serving Columbia for 5 years, he has returned to Italy and is enjoying assisting the Italian Federation with whatever they ask, and continuing to offer his expertise around the globe as requested. We are excited to welcome Leonardo to our camp this year.


Our figure leader this year will once again be Pat Jacques. The figure training will be at the skating rink this year, like last year. Pat is an exceptional talent to work with all ages and abilities, and we are thankful for her willingness to return.


The registration fee covers all training, lunches daily at the rink, a banquet party Saturday evening, and a t-shirt. There will also be a no-host dinner on Friday evening at Mad Anthony’s at 7:30pm for any wishing to attend.


A schedule will be provided to registrants as we get closer. Please feel free to contact Trace at Eastlakeskate@hotmail.com. Hotel and restaurant information coming soon. Sponsorship opportunities available, please contact Trace if interested.


PENDING (Hope to have confirmed by September 1st):

The host hotel is Wyndham Garden Warsaw. Please call hotel direct at 574-269-2323. Ask for the “Skate Camp” block. Booking direct allows us to use unpaid outside agent fees towards rooms for our seminar leaders, so please keep that in mind when booking. This helps keep your camp cost down!


See you all soon!
