Our coaching staff

We have club coaches who teach our figure skating and learn to skate (CanSkate program) programs.  Each is certified by Skate Canada (NCCP) and brings their own on-ice and off-ice training knowledge & experience to our skaters.  Get to know our coaches' backgrounds. If you are looking for group or private figure skating lessons, please contact our Registrar to start the conversation!
