At the Northern Skating Academy our programs are designed with accessibility and quality in mind. We are taking a refreshing approach to pricing, locations, and coaching in order to serve the Greater Sudbury community to the absolute best of our ability. The Northern Skating Academy’s programs will be offered all around the Greater City of Sudbury. Our goal is to deliver programs to athletes of all locations, levels, ages, and ability to encourage skaters to stay Active for Life! Our focus is first on physical literacy, followed by development of basic skills and the ABC fundamentals of skating: Agility, Balance, and Control. All of these skills are developed on and off of the ice. Basic skill development is not only a physical activity, but also a mental activity. Resilience and responsibility are fundamental skills that athletes must also learn to become successful and stay motivated. Once these skills have been perfected for their level, ability, and age, skaters can confidently proceed to more difficult and challenging activities. We at the Northern Skating Academy believe that passionate and expertly trained coaches at the heart of our association will lead to programs that are delivered with enthusiasm and expertise. We aim to support our coaches through their development and training however we can. We aim to build new coaches through guidance and mentoring, and we aim to offer a platform for experienced coaches to share their wisdom and passion. The core focus of all of our coaches is to offer excellent programs and development opportunities for all of our skaters.
