Coaches Corner

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!

I started skating when I was 3 years old and continued to do so until my early adult years. Being a program assistant has definitely opened my eyes to the idea of being a figure skating coach as I love teaching others and watching many young skaters succeed! Looking forward to a great season and coaching many new faces!
