    – Must throw foot in the air in front of you, while moving backwards.
    – Supporting foot must leave the ice, and land on one foot.
    – Arms can go up in the air as long as they don’t flail.

    FrontSide Stop:
    – Resting foot must rest flat on top of supporting (stopping) foot.
    – Resting foot must touch supporting (stopping) foot.

    Rainbow Stop:

    i don’t think people should be required to balance with their arms.. Yes its a necessity however, some people ( when gained confidence) may want to put their arms in a different place – to try out a different style of eagle stop.
    Just a thought
    Rainbow Stop – YES

  7. Dan Perceval says:

    Minutes to this meeting will be typed shortly and sent to all Board Members. Thereafter, website will be updated reflecting new guidelines for Intermediary level-2 testing (http://xtremeiceskating.com/rules/intermediary_level1/intermediary_2.htm). If there’s a page error and no page shows up, it means that I have not uploaded the page yet with corrected guidelines.
