Coaching Team

logo_nccpThe coaching team is a vital part of the Figure 8 Skating Club. They teach and instruct our skaters to build their skills and abilities. Skating requires technical skills (spinning, jumping, 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. They are dedicated, enthusiastic and talented.

Training and Certification

All Skate Canada coaches are certified in First Aid and are trained by the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). For each NCCP level, a coach is described as:

In Training – when a coach has completed some of the required training 
Trained – when a coach has completed all required training
Certified – when a coach has completed all evaluation requirements and is certified by Skate Canada and the NCCP.
