The coaching staff would like to welcome everyone back for another successful and fun filled season of skating. We have many exciting skating activities planned in the months ahead and can’t wait to begin implementing them. We will continue to strive for excellence in all levels of skating from our CanSkate A & B to our senior level competitors. As always, we are available after skating to answer any questions you might have. Feel free to give us a call at home. There isn’t anything we like more than talking about skating!
Our coaching staff is certified which means that they have completed components of the National Coaching Program (NCPP) from Level 1 to Level 5. The NCPP is a 5 level educational program for coaches in over 60 sports. Levels 1-3 cover three components of coaching: Theory, Technical and Practical. Levels 4 and 5 prepare coaches for roles in national and international sport with high performance athletes.
