2022/2023 COACHING TEAM

Our coaching team is a dynamic part of the Federation Skating Club that molds and shapes the atmosphere on and off the ice. Their enthusiastic dedication to the skaters and our programs enables them to pass on knowledge and build the basics skills of all our skaters.

Each coach has obtained national certification from Skate Canada and NCCP (National Coaching Certification Program) and routinely updates their training, education, first aid and background information.

Skaters receive the technical skills (basic skills, spinning, jumping and footwork), mental preparation, physical training (stamina, strength, flexibility), and musicality (how to skate with the music with their skills and physical expression) that allows them to progress their skating ability and appreciation. 

To arrange private StarSkate lessons, please contact a StarSkate coach using their email.
