Carol MacPherson – Power Skating Coach

42 years as a power skating instructor, resident of St. Clair Township, blessed with six children, all former hockey players. Over these last four decades, I have been fortunate to have a great home centre, Moore Sports Complex.


Along my journey, I have had great support from thee most honourable and successful mentors and minor hockey coaches. As well, I have worked many hours doing on ice re-entry and rehab for players injured with serious leg injuries (femur, fibula, tibia, ankle, knee). I’ve trained a skater that won her division at the Toronto Maple Leaf Skills Competition, worked with skaters that have played NHL games, past and current, hockey players at all levels of both minor, semi-pro and high school seniors scouted for NCAA Division One U.S. college scholarships.


I’m NOT near as limber as I was in 1981, but I do have forty-one years of knowledge, skill, expertise and passion for instructing POWER SKATING and I’ve experienced the enjoyment of seeing skaters perform with power, finesse, confidence, assertiveness, their head up, their stick down and respect for their sport.


As well, I am a certified Spinning Instructor, graduate of MAD Dogg Athletics, California. I have been instructing Spinning classes now for well over ten years.

I have valid CPR, AED, and Standard First Aid Certificates.
