Edmunds and accomplished figure skating coach Kelli Pyle will host a clinic for local skaters that will begin at 10:30 and will run to 3 p.m.   The majority of the clinic will include on-and-off ice training about skating fundamentals, conditioning, a jump clinic and other skills.  

The day will also include a seminar beginning at 2:15 about positivity and body image.  Registration for the daylong event is limited to 30 participants and is $75.  There are a few extra spaces available for the seminar only, which costs $10.  

The event is by registration only and could only accommodate a limited number of participants due to Covid-19 restrictions.  Attendees will be required to wear a mask and comply with the requirements of the Eastern Idaho Public Health Order in addition to the requirements of Governor Brad Little’s Stage 3 “Stay Health” Order.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our skating community to hear a positve message and learn some amazing skills from an Olympian as well as a great skating coach and dance choreographer,” said Idaho Falls Parks and Recreation Director PJ Holm.  “Even though we have to take precautions and limit space because of Covid, participants are still going to have an amazing experience.  It is a real treat to have amazing figure skating celebrities here in our community.”
