Our Coaches

In addition to group lessons, skaters may arrange private coaching with a club coach for 1:1 or semi private lessons with another skater of the same caliber.  All of our coaches at Skate-Canada Wasaga Beach are Skate Canada NCCP qualified and certified in First Aid.  Our coaches are approachable and ready for a chat. Please check with individual coaches for availability and rates
