Anna                 (Saturdays)


Hey my names Anna and I’m so happy to be a coach in training here at Hillsburgh-Erin skating club! I’ve been skating since I was 5 years old and haven’t stopped since! I enjoy multiple sports like Rugby, Swimming, Volleyball, and Figure Skating! When I’m not at the arena I can be found reading a book or catching up on my favourite show. I hope everyone has an amazing season at our club and I look forward to teaching everyone!

Role Models, Leaders, Supporters

Our volunteers and program assistants are invaluable members of our club. They are responsible for assisting the coaches in teaching and in many aspects of the CanSkate program. Having their help on the ice ensures that we can maintain a 1:10 or lower coach/program assistant-to-skater ratio. This ratio guarantees the best and safest delivery of our CanSkate program by allowing more personalized support leading to greater skater success and quicker progression. All of our volunteers and program assistants have been trained by a member of our professional coaching staff.
