2010 Provincial Training Camp

Each year, Skate Ontario hosts a provincial training camp to help prepare skaters for the upcoming competitive season.  Skaters are invited based on set criteria and their performance during the previous year.  They receive specialized instruction from experts on and off the ice during an intense weekend of training.

This year’s camp will be held July 2nd to 4th at RIM Park in Waterloo, Ontario.  The main on-ice coaches are Jeffrey Buttle for singles, Marie-France Dubreuil & Patrice Lauzon for dance, and Doug Ladret for pairs.
