All of our programs are taught by Certified Skate Canada Coaches, who are invaluable in the development of an athlete’s skills. They are teachers and mentors for the many young athletes they interact with in their day-to-day work. They work not only with athletes but also the athlete’s parents in setting realistic goals and the training required to reach their potential. All Skate Canada coaches are required to be certified in the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), continue to update themselves, have a valid First Aid certificate and have a current police check.
