Example Dartfish Analysis of Figure Skating Jumps

August 14, 2007

I did a Google search today for examples of figure skating elements that were analyzed using Dartfish.  Dartfish is a video analysis program that has been around for many years but is expensive and therefore beyond the reach of most skating coaches.  Still, I know of at least 22 figure skating coaches currently using Dartfish on a regular basis.

So why aren’t there any example analyses available online?

Well, now there is.  To see an example of a Dartfish analysis performed by Chris Conte (of a double axel), check out the Skating Coach Quiz.  This is a classic example of how Dartfish and other video analysis programs can be used to speed the training of skaters.

Tomorrow I’m attending a Frank Carroll workshop at the Petit Center near Milwaukee, WI.  I’m looking forward to learning a few things.
