Our Coaches


The Wallaceburg Skating Club is fortunate to have three coaches that guide our members through Skate Canada Programs.  Although they do lead our skaters through group lessons each coach is available for private lessons as well.  With private lessons a coach will work one-on-one with a skater to provide more focused skills development. If you are interested in private lessons with one of our coaches please feel free to contact them directly.
