Our Coaches


                         Angela McMullen

                              2013- present


Coach’s Philosophy: I believe leading a healthy, balanced lifestyle leads to an athletes success. In coaching, I try to guide my athletes in achieving all goals; skating, fitness, physical and mental health, and anything else they seek to achieve. In this process, I believe that having fun is essential. Finding each skaters individual balance point for work and play is my coaching strategy.
