Coaches

  • If a skater wishes to change coaches, etiquette dictates that the skater's parents contact the new coach to see if they would be willing to teach the skater, then the parents inform the former coach of the change, and pay them in full before taking any lessons from the new coach. Skate Canada requires that the former coach gracefully relinquishes any skater that wishes to change coaches
  • At the beginning of the season, you should discuss with your coach: lessons - type of lessons (free skate, skills, dance) and how many lessons per week, fees - for lessons (be it private, semi-private, group) fees for music, partnering fees, competition and test day fees, private ice - explaining that some coaches take a group of skaters out for extra practice prior to test days or competitions
