The Club’s High Performance Program, HP1240, is open to every Club member with skating privileges at the Boston location. The program is designed to enhance the Club’s current training environment for skaters of every test level, and who participate in every figure skating discipline, whether competitively or recreationally. For the purposes of this program, high performance is defined by a skater’s attitude and approach; not their test level, discipline of choice, or placement in competition.
HP1240 is designed with the following goals in mind:
- Create a community of like-minded skaters to train as a team
- Give these skaters the tools and instruction to be the best possible skater they can be
Simon Shnapir, HP1240 Program Director, is a two-time U.S. Pair Champion, and a 2014 Olympic Bronze Medalist. He understands the importance of attitude and approach in skating, and what dedication and commitment mean from his own experiences as a national, international and Olympic competitor.
”As Director of the HP1240 program, my mission is to educate Club athletes on what it takes to perform at the highest levels of figure skating, and to support their primary training and coaching with supplementary resources and guidance. The HP1240 program is here to help our skaters achieve their personal best results.
I have trained and competed with skaters in every discipline and from all over the world. These experiences drive my passion, and have shaped my high standards for success. I am excited to share what I have learned with Club skaters of every level. Together, through hard work and dedication, the HP1240 team will continue the legacy of The Skating Club of Boston as one of the elite national and international training centers.”
