Our Professional Coaches
Rideau Skating Club is fortunate to have an extensive group of coaches. The quality of their work is reflected in the excellent results and performances of the skaters who represent our club. We thank our coaches for their dedication to their job and for the passion and love of figure skating that they pass on to their students!

Certification Levels
Levels 1,2 and 3 represents increasing levels of certification. Each level of certification requires completion of 3 elements: Theory, Technical and Practical. Once a coach completes the three requirements they become certified for that level.

Level 1: Club and Regional Level Coach,Level 2: StarSkate/Provincial Level Coach,  Level 3: National level Level 4/5: These levels prepare coaches for leadership roles in national and international competitions. Coaches at this level demonstrate a thorough understanding of their sport and the demands from the developmental level to the elite or international level.
