Coaches

 

All STARSkaters must have a professional coach. Some coaches team coach and you may have the option of working with more than one coach in some circumstances. If your skater will be absent from a lesson, please advise the coach ahead of time. All coaching fees are billed by and paid directly to individual coaches. At their discretion, coaches will also bill for extra sessions, making of music, competition attendance and mileage. You may want to consider the coach's skill level/style when determining the best fit. Contact coaches directly for inquiries about their availability.
