The Skating Lesson: Interview With Dan Hollander (Episode 4)

Due to the excitement of Nationals, we are posting this week's episode a few days early. We hope you enjoy this week's interview with Dan Hollander about coaching issues, sports psychology and positive coaching techniques.


  1. So glad this was posted. I was sent this in advance last night and find the generational passing down of mentally abusive coaching techniques and attitudes to be so interesting. Dan's coach was the coach of Julie Berlin, who in turn passed down those methods when coaching Alissa Czisny. The results speak for themselves.

  2. Keep up the great work! Been following your blog since the 2008 Olympics and this is the best thing yet.

  3. It is just amazing that the usfsa would not sanction someone like Diana. Instead, they hold her up as this ideal coach!
