Frequently Asked Questions

What makes a coach, a Sr. Coach?

Knowledge, dedication, and experience. Each of our Sr. Coaches posses these qualities and maintain their status as a Sr. Coach through continuing education and a strong partnership with the San Diego Ice Arena.

What makes a coach, a Jr. Coach?

Dedication. Each of our Jr. Coaches posses an incredible amount of dedication and are employed by the San Diego Ice Arena. Their job in a way can be called an internship. Jr. Coaches are limited to coaching the Starter through Delta levels. They are here to gain the knowledge and experience we expect in every ice skating professional.

Are freestyle or public sessions included?

No. Freestyle sessions and public sessions must be purchased separately from your private lesson.

 

Private Lesson Policies

Ice skating instructors must be granted permission to coach on the premises. Coaches listed on the "Sr. Coaches" list are a select group of highly qualified and experienced coaches which make up the Sr. Coaching staff of the San Diego Ice Arena. Although these instructors are contractors with the San Diego Ice Arena, they provide private lessons independently and directly with San Diego Ice Arena patrons.
