This summer a first Figure Skating camp was organized by the ISU in collaboration with MozerTeam. The camp was held in Italy in Baselga di Piné, Italy, from July 25 to August 4. The training camp was attended by 8 couples from 6 countries, as well as 6 coaches from different countries. Every day for 10 days, the athletes trained for 2-3 hours on the ice and three hours off-ice. The work was focused on technical training, improving physical condition, improving the quality of elements and the formulation and development of programs. Many of the participants of this camp have already participated in competitions this season and achieved decent results, and experts noted the improvement in the technical training of their elements. In addition, it should be noted that the camp was held in a friendly atmosphere, with positive energy and emotions. This camp provided a solid foundation for further preparation of athletes for the season.

Continuing the cooperation between ISU and MozerTeam, it is planned to hold two more camps this season. They will be held on the eve of the main ISU Events of the season: the 2020 ISU World Figure Skating Championships, 2020 ISU European Figure Skating Championships and 2020 ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships, as well as other competitions in the second half of the 2019/20 season. Pair teams and their Coaches are invited to attend. The camps will not break the training process, but aim to give the last push before serious competitions and to improve the quality of training. The work will be carried out more on the nuances of the elements and the development of programs in a competitive environment.
The camp before the ISU European and Four Continents Figure Skating Championships will be held in Hungary, Budapest on January 9-19, 2020. Applications are accepted until November 14, 2019.
