Leanne Paisley


Skate Canada Level 2 Certified

Coaching since 2000


Coaching Philosophy:

Figure skating has been a part of my life since I was 7 years old. I bring all of my experiences into my coaching, both on and off the ice. I believe that every young skater has the potential to be the best that they can be and they deserve to learn at their own pace. I coach not only to teach the skills behind skating but teach the skills behind confidence, self-esteem, personal strength, and perseverance. Every child deserves the chance to be active in a sport environment. My goal is to make it fun and a learning experience all at once.
