SCO COACHES

All of our professional coaches are contracted by the club to coach group lessons on our CanSkate, CanPower and StarSkate sessions. Our coaches are all trained and certified through Skate Canada's National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) and are all first-aid certified. All Skate Canada coaches must be registered coaching members in good standing.

Coaches are self-employed and set their own hours and fees.

All Junior Star 2 & Senior StarSkaters must make arrangements for private lessons with one of our Base Coaches. Our coaches schedules fill up quickly each season and availability is limited. We recommend speaking to a coach as soon as possible if your skater requires lessons.

Please contact our coaches for coaching availability and lesson options.
