Skate Oakville is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of dedicated skating parents who donate their time and expertise to our club.  We also have dedicated office staff that take care of the day to day operation of the club as well as parent volunteers that run special events such as galas, test days, competitions, and banquets.

Coaches & Program Assistants

Coaches are responsible for what happens on the ice.  They teach and manage their skater's progress through the Skate Canada system of tests and competitions.  We have head coaches in key areas to help provide consistency and direction to our programs.  Program Assistants are volunteer figure skaters that help on our Learn to Skate sessions.
