"Grassroots to Champions' seminars are based o the premise that the best method of learning a sport are the correct technique, the latest technologies and effective training. I have found that Champion Cords are not only an effective method of instilling muscle memory, but my students, especially the grassroots stage skaters, really look forward to their Champion Cords lessons. The Champion Cords help to increase awareness of correct alignment and control. The Grassroots To Champions coaches are coming up with new ways to utilize Champion Cords into our system of training. Thank you Sheila for making my job easier."
