Personal Narrative-My First Figure Skating

Decent Essays
From a young age, I started figure skating. At around the age of nine, I began a part of the first synchronized skating team at the rink. I continued doing this until we no longer had enough people at my small local rink. I used to come do an off-ice class on Tuesday and would hear and occasionally watch a new team of skaters, who competed Theatre on Ice. The next year I decided to join the team. That year was the first year that we broke up into two teams. I was on the open team which consisted of thirteen other skaters. After about seven months of practicing, we heading to the national competition in Cape Cod, MA. I did not have high expectations for how we were going to place because the same team the previous year did not place well.
