Our Team Coaching format was introduced for our StarSkaters to allow skaters to build their skills and abilities by learning from more than one coach and benefiting from each coach’s technical strengths.  The coaching team shapes the nature of the club and the atmosphere on the ice and ensures that all skaters feel supported by everyone in the club and progress to their own potential.  Our Skating Director and Program Administrator coordinate coaching sessions for each Starskater.
