SMFSC Coaches

All SMFSC coaches are contracted by the Club to coach group lessons on our CanSkate and PreSTARSkate sessions, as well as Stroking for STARSkate/Competitive sessions and Synchro Skating.

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 PreSTARSkaters 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 cool-down 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
