Hi, my name is Caitie Mollenhauer and I have been coaching for 15 years!
I started out as a PA with my local skating club when I was 12, before pursuing my CanSkate and StarSkate coaching qualifications.
Teaching skating led me to my career path outside of the rink, where I can be found teaching French Immersion!
I started skating when I was 3 years old, and continued through to my adult years. I have achieved triple gold status in Dance, Skills and Interpretive, and passed what was previously my Senior Bronze FreeSkate.
One of my favourite parts of coaching and skating is moving to different types of music and trying out different styles!
Outside of the rink, I can be found spending time enjoying nature, reading a good book with a cup of tea, watching an Avengers movie or playing board games.
Hi, I'm Marissa Smith and I'm one of the new Canskate Coaches this year.
This is my first-year coaching but I have been figure skating for 12 years and was a Program Assistant for 6 years.
I am so excited to be coaching this year and to share my love and passion for skating with others.
