Walkerton Figure Skating Club operates out of the Walkerton/Brockton Municipal Arena. We are a growing club with a wide range of skaters in both ages and interests. WFSC is looking for CanSkate, CanPower and STARSkate coaches for the 2020/2021 season. Our skating sessions runs on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from September until end of April. The Club installed a Jump Harness in 2018. We also operate a very successful PreCan Program throughout the skating season, which helps further strengthen our CanSkate and STARSkate programs.
We are looking for coaches who are motivated, enthusiastic professionals with excellent leadership, communication and interpersonal skills. They must be passionate about the CanSkate program, to help our club continue to grow and succeed. CanPower is a new addition to our upcoming season, so being Power Trained would be a great benefit for the applicant (but not mandatory).
