POWSC Spring 2018 Workshop

The Prince of Wales Skating Club is delighted to announce we will be hosting a spring workshop for STAR/Competitive skaters during the weekend of April 21st.

The guest coaches are Ice Dance Olympians, Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier, who finished 6th at the recent 2018 ISU World Championships in Milano.

Each group will have two (2) one-hour sessions on-ice in a smaller group setting (max 20 skaters). In order to get the full potential from the workshop we request skaters to be accompanied on ice by their
coach/es if possible.

The first hour will be conducted by the guest coaches, starting with a dynamic & fun warm-up followed by their stroking & edges session.
During the second hour, the guest coaches will work with your own coach/es towards your skating skills development.

Private sessions with Piper or Paul are also available to seminar participants; dance teams are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. At the moment we have two hours reserved for the
private lessons but more ice can be made available.
