The Oshawa Skating Club is very proud of our professional coaching staff. We believe we have a coach that will suit your skater.
As a “new to figure skating” parent, having to choose a coach may be a bit overwhelming, so we recommend that you talk to your child. They meet many of our coaches while skating. They will more than likely know which coach(es) they would prefer and/or enjoy learning from. Your skater is the one working directly with their coach, so it often works best if they have a comfort level already established. Also, read our "Hiring a Private Coach" information sheet below.
Once you and your child decide on a coach, you can contact them using the information on their profile or by email. You can also approach your coach of choice after a session to speak to them in person while at the arena.
Our coaches all have NCCP certification and are registered coaches in good standing with Skate Canada. They are bound by a Code of Ethics to respect parents and skaters, which means YOU must approach THEM to start the conversation about private lessons. Skate Canada and the Oshawa Skating Club offers a pressure free environment, meaning the choice is yours about which coach you choose and when you choose them.
