Coaching Team

logo_nccp

The coaching team is a vital part of the Figure 8 Skating Club. Our coaching team guides skaters in technical skill development (spinning, jumping, footwork), mental preparation (particularly for competitions and tests), physical training (stamina, strength, flexibility), and musical interpretation (giving physical expression to music). The coaching team shapes the nature of the Club and the atmosphere on the ice. We are fortunate to have a dedicated, friendly and talented coaching team.
