Getting A Coach
All of our coaches are Skate Canada certified through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). Our coaches are hired by the club to provide group instruction. The club allows the coaches to teach on the club's ice-time to provide skaters with privately arranged lessons. All coaches are self-employed and therefore must be approached directly for lesson inquiries.
If a skater wishes to change coaches, etiquette dictates that the skater's parents ask the new coach if they would be willing to teach the skater, then the parents inform the former coach of the change and pay them in full before taking any lessons from the new coach. Skate Canada requires that the former coach gracefully relinquish any skater that wishes to change coaches.
Hi my name is Ayla Hunt. I was raised in Southern Ontario and moved up to this area in 2015. I am a certified Regional coach and CANskate coach. I am able to teach CANSkate to senior levels. I have a College Diploma from The University of Guelph Ridgetown Campus in Horticulture (2009).
I have been skating for myself for 30 years and coaching for 11 years. I have been able to achieve Gold Level in Interpretive and Couples Interpretive. I am currently working on finishing my Gold Level Dances with hopes of also achieving my Gold Skills in the future. I have also completed up to my Senior Bronze freeskate with hopes of completing my equivalent Junior Silver Freeskate one day.
I am a well-rounded coach in all disciplines and I always strive to learn something new and pass it on to the next generation. I find no goal is unrealistic if you have the right mind frame and work ethic. I believe skating is a sport for everyone to share in and encourage people to try new skills and find a new love or passion. The ice is a second home for me and I am so blessed to be able to coach, skate and share this wonderful sport with the next generations. If you are interested in chatting with me, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (519)401-2722. Thank you so very much.
