STOUFFVILLE SKATING CLUB COACHES
When choosing a coach there are several things to consider; cost, availability and qualifications. Feel free to make inquiries to assure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision.
Coaches rates will vary based on qualifications and experience. On average you can expect to pay anywhere from $10.00 - $16.00 for a 15 minute private lesson. Keep in mind that rates will vary if there is more than one person in the group (semi private or group instruction) and length of the lesson (10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes or more). If you are unsure and are shopping around, be sure to ask the coach for a fee schedule before committing to any lessons.
Check to see if the coach is available on the sessions you are planning to skate on. If you are interested in a specific coach, check their availability first and then try to skate on those sessions. If skating on a certain day is more important, register for the session and then check with the coach.
Intermediate and Senior skaters, please note that our male dance coach/partners are available as follows:
- Danny Mon and Tues. Please be sure to select the session your dance coach/partner that you will be testing with is available. If you are unsure please check with your coach for more details.
All coaches are required to be registered with Skate Canada, the governing body of skating in Canada. This insures they are qualified as coaches, have current first aid and are insured. The standard qualification levels are mandated by the Coaches Association of Canada and are based on the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). Coaches are designated through certification as CanSkate coaches or NCCP Levels (1,2,3,4,5). As a point of reference you need to be Level 4 to coach at an Olympic game. Coaches are also required to participate in the Coaches Education Program (CEP). In this program they are rewarded points for participating in various types of activities such as Leadership, Continuous Education, Seminars, Conventions, workshops, planning, etc. Every two years the Coaches are rated Gold, Silver or Bronze based on the points they have accumulated.
Please contact our Coaches directly (contact info listed below) to find out their availability on your preferred sessions.

Inspiring skaters and helping to grow their love for the sport; pushing skaters to be the best they can be, while making sure they are enjoying every moment on the ice. I want every skater to feel important, cared for, and worth it. I want to help skaters develop character traits and life skills that they can take with them beyond the rink.

Skating has always been a passion of mine, as is teaching children and seeing them grow. Having worked with children as a skating coach and scouter, working with children and motivating them to do well creates a sense of pride, and fuels my passion. Being able to share my love for figure skating is an opportunity I am grateful for.
