SMFSC Coaches

All SMFSC coaches are contracted by the Club to coach group lessons on our CanSkate and Pre-Junior StarSkate sessions, as well as Stroking for STARSkate/Competitive sessions.

Coaches are self-employed and set their own hours and fees. If a skater has exceeded the terms of payment and an unacceptable past due payment has not been met the coach may decide that a skater may not test until they have paid their coaches bill.  

All Pre-Junior Skaters and STARSkaters must have made arrangements for private lessons from one of SMFSC's coaches. For more details on how to find a coach for your skater, and how to work with a coach, please see the STARSkate Coaches page.

CanSkaters can also arrange to have their skater work directly with an individual coach for private lessons during the warm-up period of CanSkate sessions.

Please contact our Coaches directly to find out their availability on your preferred sessions. Here is a complete listing of all coaches and their contact information or download this informationas a PDF
