A SkateCanada Professional Coach is the first point of contact with your child on the ice at the Tilbury Skating Club. He or she is also the best source of information about your child’s progress and on-ice development. We encourage parents to speak with coaches in person, via email or over the phone to get the direct, helpful feedback your skater needs.
Certification Coaches must have National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) training and they must also be a current registered professional coaching member of Skate Canada. They must have completed a Skate Canada approved clearance check and positions of trust check, police check, and hold a valid First Aid Certificate.
