Coach Facial Expressions

I've found coaches actually have two facial expressions:

The "Happy You Got Your Axel" Face
And the "other" expression:
The polite "Well, let's try that again" Expression

The "other" expression is actually hiding deep emotional turmoil:

The skater's first failure:
"Aaaaaarrrrrgggggghhhhh! Why doesn't
 this kid do what I say to do!"
The fiftieth Failure:

The hundredth failure

With my issues regarding checking, Madam Mim ought to be reaching for the bottle right ..... about.... NOW!


  1. I can't find a picture for it - but you need the face for "I can't believe you are doing a test in 3 weeks time when you are skating that dance like that"....

  2. I get this one from my coach. The, "Whaaaat???" It usually corresponds to my body doing something completely different from what either my coach or I asked it to!


  3. I get the "Really?? That's what you did? Really??? Wow, not even close" face, a lot....
