COACHING PHILOSOPHY

Each skater is an individual with his or her own goals for skating.  I believe in helping every skater reach his or her goals and potential through an individualized plan based on skaters’ on and off ice commitments, focuses, and schedules.  I believe in positive reinforcement and encouragement and I strongly support injury prevention and require that skaters do off ice training to appropriately supplement their needs at each level.  Skaters must set goals that are attainable and performance focused.
