Mission Statement

My mission is to promote the sport of figure skating by assisting individuals in achieving their maximum potential in terms of skill and competence on the ice. To succeed in this effort, I will coach with vigor and enthusiasm, providing knowledgeable instruction and discipline in a constructive manner that ensures an enjoyable educational experience and endows the skater with physical and emotional benefits for a lifetime.

Ongoing education in the sport of skating is a must to constantly improve my skills as a coach and instructor, as is the ability to rise above personal pride and politics to ensure that the skaters' interests and needs always come first. My success is measured by the success of my students as they progress through the sport, and more importantly by the joy and satisfaction they discover through figure skating.

The Right Focus

One key aspect of my coaching style is that I value every athlete equally, no matter his or her age, ability, experience, or level of financial investment. Even when my students have to  compete against one another, I strive to support each of them equally. Moreover, I encourage them to support one another as well. Working together is one way we can all be more successful.
