Hi I’m Holly! I just moved to Olds from Prince George, British Columbia to study Animal Health Sciences at Olds College. This will be my third year coaching skating as a Regional Coach in Training and I am working towards becoming Regional Coach Certified by the end of this season. I skated for ten years and during that time I achieved my Gold and partial Diamond Dances, Gold Skills, Gold Interpretive, and Junior Silver Freeskate. I am very excited to be joining the coaching team at Olds Skating Club and can’t wait to meet everyone. I am looking forward to what will be a great season!
Kayla skated with the Olds Figure Skating club for 8 years and is excited to return for her third season as a CanSkate coach. She has achieved her Gold Dances, Silver Interpretative, and Junior Silver Skills. Outside of skating Kayla is taking pre-vet at Red Deer College and enjoys shows cattle.
Kayla looks forward to coaching this year.
Hi I am Kobi Chant, I am 17 years old and attend Olds High School. Last year was my first year coaching Canskate and I am really excited to be able to start coaching Starskate this year as well as Canskate. . Currently I am a competitive Ice dancer competing at the Novice level. I have been doing ice dance for the past 6 years. Last year my partner and I placed 3rd at Skate Canada Challenge and also represented Alberta at the Canada Winter Games where we also won a bronze medal. This summer we represented Canada at the Lake Placid International Ice Dance competition. I love skating I train 5 mornings a week before school and look forward to sharing my passion with the new generation of skaters in my home town after school. I am a triple gold skater in Dance, Interpretive and Skills, still working towards my Quad Gold. I look forward to passing on my knowledge in dance as well as freeskate and other skills to the Olds and area skaters. I will also be available for dance partnering.
Hi everyone, I’m Lyndsay Stange! I have always had a strong love for the sport of figure skating; I was told I could skate before I could walk! I finished my skating career with gold status in Skating Skills and Interpretive, and then a Senior Silver status in Dance and Free Skate. As I grew older I lost my interest in competing and found my love in coaching. My mom happened to be my coach through my years of skating, and showed me the ropes a few years back now. I shortly then went and got my Regional Coach Trained and am working towards being Regional Coach Certified. For the past two years I have had the opportunity of being the head coach of the Sundre Skate Club and will continue that role for the 2019/2020 season.
I am beyond thankful for the parents of Olds Figure Skating Club and it’s organization to give me this opportunity to be a coach in their club. I consider myself very lucky as a Red Deer College student to be able to do something that I love while I continue my studies!
