Specialization

Ellen is a Dartfish video analysis specialist. Dartfish is a sports video analysis system that allows skaters to gain instant video feedback during a training session.  Skaters are captured on video, and can be shown their performance in slow motion, frame by frame, or in stromotion format.  This allows the skater to gain visual feedback relating to key positions within elements.  Skaters can also have the video of their performance compared with that of another skater who demonstrates an excellent example of the element being performed. Ellen is one of only several Dartfish specialists in Ontario and has worked with National and International competitors

Philosophy

“I believe that every skater should be guided and encouraged to reach their full potential as a skater and as a person , as skating teaches as many life skills as it does athletic ones”
