ASC Coaches

  • Coaches are self-employed and set their own hours and fees. 
  • STARSkaters in level 1 and 2 are encouraged to have private lessons from one of ASC's coaches, but it is not required
  • STARSkaters in levels 3+ are required to have private lessons from one of ASC's coaches.
  • CanSkaters can also 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. 

Things to Consider When Selecting a Coach

Private lesson are an agreement between the skater, parent and the coach. This is independent of the ASC; the ASC endorses all of our coaches equally. The ASC assumes no responsibility for private lessons, such as fees charged or scheduled times. When you are interested in hiring a private coach, contact is made directly with the coach (contact info listed below). When you are selecting a private coach, you should discuss availability, fees, lesson types and number of lessons per week. In order for the coach to meet all of your needs, contact the coach as early as possible. It is the skater’s responsibility to inform their coach if they are going to be absent from a lesson.
