Meet Our Coaches!
Barb Rogers is a Level 3 Skate Canada coach and has been with the Arthur and Area Skating Club for 19 years. Her skating philosophy is to make sure every skater gets off the ice at the end of their session feeling better about themselves than when they got on. Skating is not just a sport, it’s an avenue of learning many life skills. Barb works full time as a Planning Resource at Nestle Waters in Aberfoyle. She looks forward to every minute on the ice with “her” skaters. She has 2 girls who both grew up in the Arthur skating club along with her Granddaughter who is also learning to skate with the club. Barb also spends time helping to coach the Guelph Gryphons at the University of Guelph and introduction to Synchro at the Guelph Skating Club.Every skater has an opportunity to be the best they can be at anything they do, we just need to give them the avenue to do so!
Nicole’s coaching philosophy is to create a fun and successful learning environment for all skates of all ages. She feels that through a fun, positive and encouraging learning environment skaters will experience their personal best on and off the ice. She believes it is important to acknowledge each skater’s effort and to celebrate every achievement as it is both of these elements that act as stepping stones toward accomplishing a higher goal. Nicole enjoys coaching all aspects of skating and is looking forward to learning about synchronized skating.
