Pre-canskate is back for the 2021-2022 season!
We are proud to introduce the coaches at OFSC. Coaches are a major factor in the development of many life skills such as discipline, a sense of self worth and accomplishment and respect for goals and aspirations of others. All of our coaches are certified by the National Coaching Certification Program.
All coaches can be contacted at this email address: email@example.com
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 Certification. 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 2020/2021 season.
I am excited to be coming back for a second year at OFSC! 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!
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.
Hello everyone, my name is Madison Byrt. I am 16 years old and attended Olds High School. I’ve been a PA with the Olds Figure Skating Club since I was 10 so I’m so excited to take another step along my path. As I’ve gotten older I’ve lost my love for competing, therefore, this year I’ve decided to focus entirely on coaching. While I skated I accomplished my Junior Silver dances as well as my Star 6 Skills. Outside of skating you’ll see me on the ball diamond as I umpire/play softball out of Innisfail.
I’m so excited to start this skating season and can’t wait to see how our kids grow throughout the year.
Hello! My name is Fallon Reberger! I am 16 years old and in Grade 11 at Olds High School. This will be my 13th year figure skating and my first official year being a coach. Along with coaching I will be working on completing my Star 4 free skate and skills as well as my Star 6 dances. I am beyond thankful for the many opportunities figure skating has given me and now I have the privilege to be a Canskate coach. In my spare time you can find me riding my horse or out on the ball diamond playing softball.
I am thrilled to begin the season and see all the kids enjoying and learning the sport I love.
