The participants of the camp are between 6 and 20 years. However, the age is not limiting, but only the level of the skaters.
We recommend this at the earliest from the age of 14 years. The responsibility lies solely with the legal guardian. No day care is offered.
The skaters are divided into groups according to their performance level. There are 3-4 skaters in each group in the technical training on the ice. Only in exceptional cases 5 skaters. In the registration form, please state the current level of the skater. Under no circumstances should you tick off jumps that your child has not yet mastered at the time of booking. We take into account the booking date and the time until the start of the camp. Should there be any disturbances within the group due to incorrect information locally, we reserve the right to change the skater into another group. If this is not possible, we would have to exclude the skater from group training. A reimbursement of the travel price is not possible in this case.
Our coaches receive the group composition including the specified levels (jumps) at the beginning of the camp.
The preliminary schedule will be published on our homepage 4 weeks before the respective camp starts, but this is not suitable as an printout. We ask you to review the plan again. The final plan will be given to the skaters with further information at the beginning of the camp.
Level beginner: your child must jump all single jumps.
Level Pre-Novice: your child must jump 1 to 3 double jumps.
Level Novice: your child must jump 4 to 5 double jumps.

If possible, please consult your home coach.
