Melissa Smith

Working closely with the skater and family we identify goals that align with their vision of the skating experience – for example, extra practice to support Learn to Skate lessons, power skating skills, and even competition. My focus is on teaching the fundamentals to mastery and then building upon skills to successfully build skating talent. I also take time to explain how a skill is applied in an advanced setting to help the skater understand the technical detail as well as the next steps/growth targets. I use humor and positive feedback to build the relationship with the skater. Second only to the parent, I am my skater’s biggest cheerleader!
