The ice rink is like a second world where nothing else matters

       

                                  

Meet our Coaches

The coaches at the Winchester skating club work together as a team. Team coaching creates a fully supportive atmosphere on the ice where all skaters feel encouraged. They work together with all the skaters by bringing their complementary areas of expertise, strengths, and personalities.  It has been shown that many skaters excel when exposed to different coaching styles.

Unity is strength... when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved - by Mattie Stepanek
