Our Coaching Team is led by our Head Coach, Jessica Grajczyk.
The Kimberley Skating Club operates a Team-Coaching format for StarSkate. This will allow skaters to build their skills and abilities by learning from more than one coach and benefiting from each coach’s technical strengths. Skating requires technical skills, mental preparation, physical training, and musical interpretation. The coaching team will guide the Kimberley Skating Club skaters in all of these areas. The coaching team shapes the nature of the club and the atmosphere on the ice and ensures that all skaters feel supported by everyone in the club.
Our Head Coach, will coordinate coaching sessions for each skater, based on the number of lessons the parents have agreed to. The lesson(s) may be group, private or semi-private and will be planned based on the skaters goals and coaching team scheduling and availability. Parents will be invoiced by the individual coaches directly at the end of each month.
