All of our coaches are Skate Canada Certified through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP).
Our coaches are contracted with our club to provide group instruction to fulfill the club’s needs.
The club then allows the coaches to teach on the club’s ice time to give skaters privately arranged instruction.
All of our coaches are self-employed and therefore must be approached directly for lesson inquiry. A list of coaches on staff will be found on the bulletin board.
Please feel free to talk to any of our coaches for references, qualifications, and availability. Many of our coaches work at more than one club.
