Molly Burmeister :: USFS & PSA coach

My name is Molly Burmeister. I recently graduated with my master’s degree in Sport and Exercise Psychology from Minnesota State University – Mankato and am working on starting my own Mental Performance Consulting business. For the last four years, I have been a Home Club coach with the New Ulm Figure Skating Club (NUFSC), coaching skaters of all ages and skill levels in both USFS and ISI. In addition to finishing up school and coaching, I also worked at Caravel Autism Health as a Behavior Technician.

For thirteen years, I skated as a member of Burnsville MN Valley Figure Skating Club and was an Upper Great Lakes Regional Competitor. I also skated with the District 196 Figure Skating Team – Icettes for six years, where I competed ISI Freestyle 8, as well as on their varsity synchro team. Through my years of skating, I achieved USFS Gold Medal status in Moves in the Field and Freestyle. I began my coaching career with Apple Valley Learn to Skate in 2014 as well as coached BMVFSC’s Junior Club. During my undergraduate and graduate studies at MNSU – Mankato, I coached for NUFSC, doing individual and group instruction in freestyle, moves in the field, on-ice and off-ice conditioning, and choreography for competitions and ice shows. While at NUFSC, I coached skaters through ISI and USFS levels.

My coaching style combines my personal experience and knowledge of the techniques and dynamics of figure skating, along with my extensive studies of how the mind effects the body in sport and performance. I place a high emphasis on technique with my skaters to advance their skills. As important as it is to develop physical skills in figure skating, I believe that it is just as important to train the mental skills needed to perform successfully. I work with my skaters to set goals, increase their confidence, and manage mistakes in their skating. Figure skating can teach many life lessons beyond the ice, and my goal is to help each skater reach their potential both on and off the ice!
