Our Coaches

All ASC coaches are contracted by the Club to coach group lessons on our CanSkate and STARSkate Junior sessions, as well as Stroking for STARSkate sessions.

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

All Intermediate and Senior STARSkaters must have made arrangements for private lessons from one of ASC's coaches. 

CanSkaters and Junior STARSkaters can also arrange to have their skater work directly with an individual coach for private lessons during the cool-down period of CanSkate sessions.

Please contact our Coaches directly to find out their availability on your preferred sessions. 

Here is a complete alphabetical listing of all coaches and their contact information...
