The rotational direction of a spin is not a rule. It is usually easier for a RIGHT HANDED skater to spin counter clockwise and jump counter clockwise and for LEFT HANDED skater to jump and spin clockwise. Then there are some that can do both equally well.

I think it has more to do with getting the feel for a lean and rotation more than anything else. Learning both counter clockwise and clockwise can confuse the brain, especially at the beginning of the learning process. BUT IT IS NOT A HARD AND FAST RULE.

I hope that helps.
