2018 SUMMER COACHES

 

Glacier Skate Academy has a great team of professional coaches who work together to ensure that each skater achieves personal excellence. Our dedicated coaching staff provides a full range of skating disciplines - freestyle, dance and pairs - with professional specialists in jumps, spins, skating skills and choreography. When choosing a coach for your skater, there are several factors to take into consideration. To assist you with this process, U.S. Figure Skating and The Professional Skaters Association have outlined the following information. We hope that this helps you in making your coaching choice. www.skatepsa.com and click on the information and the parent information tabs. The Glacier Skate coaching team asks that all skaters and parents adhere to the Glacier Skate Academy club policies and US Figure Skating Parent Code of Conduct.
