Q: How do coaches register?
A: Coaches are able to register online. Make sure you choose the Coaches program. You may also register at the door with $40 cash or cheque. We have room for 24 coaches.
Q: What supplies will skaters need?
A: Skaters will need to bring layers so they can manage their temperature during the seminar. The rink is not heated so take that into account! Check the Program page (menu button on the left of this) for a detailed list as sessions are announced.
Don't forget to bring healthy lunch and snack items so you can get the most from the day. The rink's canteen will be open with the usual goodies too.
Q: How do you choose the host champions?
A: We always try for a Canadian first since our country is a figure skating powerhouse with lots of talented champions. So far, we have booked champion figure skaters but we also consider coaches and choreographers who have accomplished great things with their skaters. We take into account the wish list of skaters in Atlantic Canada, of course. They usually have lots of suggestions! We focus on booking host champions who have achieved greatness (or are on the road to it) and who have an interest in and love of teaching. We want them to be upbeat and fun, while also demanding the best of our participants. And then, of course, we have to consider availability also. Easy, right?!
