Coaching Objectives

  • Darlene feels it is important to teach each skater as an individual and help them to meet their personal goals.
  • She wants to keep skating fun so her skaters want to continue to learn and achieve their set goals.
  • She would like each skater to "learn to love the sport" for lifelong learning, exercise, and enjoyment.

Specialties
