Professional Coaching Staff
All MSC professional coaches are N.C.C.P. Certified members of Skate Canada. They are contracted by Markham Skating Club to teach group lessons, as well as to lead stroking sessions for our STARSkate/Competitive skaters.
At MSC we are very proud of our coaching team. Many of our coaches have been national champions and international competitors. These professionals coach both male and female skaters of all levels of ability and experience, from “learn to skate” programs through gold levels.
In addition to group lessons, our coaches are available for private coaching during regular sessions. Private lessons with a professional coach are a very important aspect of your child’s skating development. Our coaches are self-employed and set their own hours and rates. If you are interested in having your skater work one-on-one with a coach, please speak directly with one of the coaches listed at the side to find out more about their personal style, coaching approach, rates and their availability.
Types of Coaches
Coaches at the Markham Skating Club may work with your skaters in various capacities, either as club coaches and/or professional freelance coaches.
Professional Freelance (Private) Coaches
Professional freelance coaches are qualified and certified by Skate Canada to offer coaching instruction, and are permitted to offer private skating instructions to Markham Skating Club skaters for a fee. Not all coaches offer instruction to all levels of skaters.
Club coaches are qualified and certified by Skate Canada to offer coaching instruction, and are hired by the Markham Skating Club to supervise and conduct group lessons to our CanSkaters, Preliminary STARSkaters, CanPowerSkaters, and Adult Skaters.
