The Leduc Figure Skating club offers a unique team coaching strategy for all of its members. We are pleased to announce we currently have 8 Professional Coaches providing a variety of programming for LFSC Skaters. Many of our coaches actually learned to and continue to skate right here in Leduc!


This group of coaches strives to provide the best instruction, support and encouragement for every LFSC skater whether they are in their first ever PreCANSkate class or a Senior level STARSKater. They bring  a wealth of experience and technical training to our programs, offering unique strength and abilities. One thing all of these individuals have in common is an incredible passion for skating and dedication to helping each skater achieve their very best!
