The PRO-MOTION Systems were developed because we, as skating coaches, wanted a device for use off-ice to teach skaters basic jumping fundamentals and rotation exercises. After the skater had a good understanding of the jump, we wanted a system for use on-ice that was easy for both the skater and coach to use. We wanted the coach to be able to determine the proper speed and take-off curve and let the skater concentrate on the rotation and landing. The System that we developed is now in use throughout the world by beginners and world champions and is helping thousands of skaters. PRO-MOTION lets the coach assist the skater in doing the jump, therefore the physical strength of the coach is not an integral part of its operation. You will get results faster and with more consistency with the PRO-MOTION Systems because the skater feels the actual timing of the jump and not a false sense of being suspended in the air. Skaters can practice triples, quads and combinations anywhere on the ice surface.
Coaches around the world know that PRO-MOTION is an invaluable tool for teaching multi-rotational jumps. We know that you too will have good results.

The PRO-MOTION Off-Ice System was designed to teach skaters rotational techniques off-ice without their skates on. It is included with the purchase of the PRO-MOTION Hand Held System. The idea is to teach the skater the mechanics of the jump off the ice while wearing running shoes before taking the jump on the ice with the “Pole.”
It consists of a pulley and rope to be attached to a beam in a gym or at the side of the ice surface. The Off-Ice System uses the same body harness as the Hand-Held System. The coach can teach the skater the correct arm and leg positions in the air as well as correct landing technique. The Off-Ice System is ideal for spotting pair skaters’ lifts. The coach can assist the male partner in lifting the girl and reduce the potential for injury to the girl while the pair is developing strength and balance.
