Allison Scott (Coaches Representative)

 

Personal Profile:

     I have been a member of the Morrisburg & District Skating Club since I began skating at the age of 5 and am beginning my 26th season of coaching with MDSC. Throughout my skating career I have gained valuable experience pertaining to the various aspects of figure skating which increased my love for the sport and enhanced my desire to share my knowledge as a professional.

 

My Coaching Phliosophy:

     "I believe that good coaching is the key to success in any sport program. A coach must be knowledgeable, enthusiastic and well prepared. The effective coach continuously creates ways to make figure skating fun, uses positive interaction and creates a safe and interesting environment to learn and improve skating skills. Because the coach is a model for skaters to follow, a good example must be set at all times."
