Coaching Team

SAMSUNG CSC

logo_nccpThe coaching team is a key part of the Figure 8 Skating Club. It is they, who directly pass on the knowledge, and build the skills of our skaters. Skating requires technical skills (spinning, jumping or doing fancy footwork), mental preparation (particularly for competitions and tests), physical training (stamina, strength, flexibility), and musical interpretation (giving physical expression to music). Our coaches guide the Figure 8 Skating Club skaters in all of these areas. The coaching team shapes the nature of the club and the atmosphere on the ice. We are fortunate to have a great coaching team in our club. They are dedicated, enthusiastic and talented.

Training and Certification

Trained – when a coach has completed all required training for a context;
