Our Coaches

CBS Skating Club is proud to offer professional coaching for all of our skaters in all of our skating sessions – from Pre-CanSkate to our senior levels. The coaching of figure skating in Canada is done on a professional basis. Individuals make their coaching services available for a fee. Skate Canada Professional Coaches normally coach as their vocation, either on a full or part-time basis. All coaches are registered with Skate Canada and required to be trained and/or certified in the National Coaching Certification Program.

Team Coaching

Some of our coaches use a team-based approach. Team coaching allows a coache to take on more students while ensuring that everyone receives the lesson time they need. In team coaching, each skater will have a main coach who oversees their program and development, as well as one or more additional coaches who their coach has selected to help with their skaters. If you have additional questions about how team coaching works please don't hesitate to ask a member of a coaching team.
