2018-2019 Federation Skating Club

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 with their enthusiastic dedication to the skaters and our programs.  They directly pass on knowledge and build the basics skills of all our skaters. Each Coach receives years of training and certification to offer our skaters the technical skills (basic skills, spinning, jumping and footwork), mental preparation, physical training on and off the ice (stamina, strength, flexibility), and musicality (how to skate with the music with their skills and physical expression).

All Federation Skating Club Coaches are Skate Canada Trained or Certified, First Aid Trained and have submitted a complete background check to the National Coaching Certification Program and Skate Canada.
