Here is some information about our coaches!
Since the young age of 3, I have always had a passion for the magic that happens when metal meets ice!
While pursing a competitive synchronized skating
career in Brampton, I had the opportunity to start my coaching career with Humber College Coaching Diploma Program
with Specialization in Figure Skating.
This combined educational experience and competitive skating opportunity has allowed me to become a well rounded coach with
National and International
skating and coaching experiences. I have now been coaching all disciplines of skating for 6 years from beginners to adult learners.
The same passion that I had during my own skating career is something that I still bring to each one of my skating lessons.
I believe in teaching the fundamentals
of skating and my lessons always focus on the 'how-to' aspect of the sport. The use of teaching progressions and
physical teaching aids are very useful in
teaching correct techniques and I am not afraid to get creative to get the job done! My coaching philosophy would be that
my skaters are not just skaters, they
are student-athletes. I teach my students the fundamentals in sport as well as fundamental life lessons such as responsibility,
self-discipline, proper mannerisms,
and time management. I believe that any skater given the right opportunity combined with an excellent work ethic
has the capabilities to achieve their goals.
