Communiti App for Coaches Announcement

Make more Money? Now you can!

Skate Ontario is delighted to announce a new initiative to benefit coaches with their Glide partner the Communiti App, that will allow for coaches to generate an additional revenue stream and clubs and skating schools to potentially access more members. Best of all is it’s FREE for coaches to use.

Coaches who are registered and in good standing with Skate Canada,  who are working at a Skate Ontario club or skating school, will be eligible to join this program through the Communiti Club and Coach app where their coaching services can be advertised to an online marketplace for potential students looking for lessons.

This is perfect for coaches who would like to work more hours than are available to them at their club or skating school.

How does this work?

You are invited to join a waiting list here:

Once Communiti has confirmed that you are a registered coach in good standing, you will be required to purchase compulsory additional liability insurance ($199 + HST/year) then the next steps will get you on the app in minutes!

You are in control of your business:

  • This is FREE for coaches to sign up and use!!!
  • You get to create your profile on the app including rates and descriptions for your lessons.
  • If people sign up for lessons with you, they will prepay for the lessons by credit card and your fee will be deposited by Communiti into your bank account.
  • The end user will be paying a convenience fee based on their total purchase on the app.
  • You will be able to access your students/lessons and generate reports that will keep you ‘in the know’ about this revenue stream.
  • You will be able to communicate with potential students in real time from within the app.
  • This gives you the opportunity to create relationships with new clients that could convert to new memberships at your club once they fall in love with the sport – and we know they will!
  • This is the perfect ‘Try Before You Buy’ plan for new skaters.

The Communiti Coach program within the app launch is December 2022 and it will be available for immediate use. Think of the possibilities for a learn to skate gift during the holidays!

As with all the other initiatives through Communiti with Skate Ontario, a portion of the proceeds will be donated back to skating in our province through the Communiti Loves Skating Fund.

Come join us for a Facebook Live session on Skate Ontario YouTube and Facebook channels on December 1, 2022, at 7pm ET, with representation from Communiti, Skate Ontario and Gallagher Insurance.
