On Thursday, September 18th the SNAP crew had the opportunity to join Laura Levtov and the Skating Educators Canada Inc group, which includes World and Olympic coach of Champions (such as Elvis Stojko and Jennifer Robinson) Michelle Leigh, former Marlie’s Coach and 1st round pick for the Maple Leafs Tom Martin, Olympic Gold medalist Vicky Sunohara from Team Canada, & 10yr NHL Veteran Mike Galati, as they took to the ice at the Thornhill Community Centre.
As you can see from the staff they cover all aspects of skating and are involved with many programs, teams and kids across the GTA. You couldn’t ask for a better team to take your children to the highest level of their skating ability!! It is never to late to start with this academy’s classes as they are based on ability not necessarily age.
With figure skating AND hockey, while your kids are growing up it is important to learn not only balance, but the fundamentals of using edges, proper stride and body position to fully develop a strong skating technique. Classes are kept small, with a 5:1 student to coach ratio for the best in hands on instruction and skill correction.
Featured here are some of their figure skating students practicing for an event held in Hamilton in September.
We will keep you posted on their results over the winter and in the future because with Laura and the team they all have strong potential to be future Olympic Champions!
