FUNdamentals Leader Training

The FUNdamentals Leader training is a one day workshop ideal for teenage skaters looking to get into coaching or parents who are new to the sport and interested in helping out or simply wanting to learn a little bit more about speed skating. This workshop prepares coaches to work as an instructor or assistant coach with skaters in the Active Start, FUNdamentals & Learning to Train stages of development with skaters in Learn to Skate and Learn to Speed Skate programs. Milton is hosting a course on Sunday October 20th. 

    FUNdamentals Tutorial Sessions
    The FUNdamentals Tutorial sessions are quickly approaching on September 28, October 9, and October 19th. If you are a coach who is FUNdamentals Trained but still needs to complete the portfolio work and evaluation, this session is for you. The sessions will be hosted by an OSSA Learning Facilitator who will work with coaches to understand the remaining steps in the certification process, assist with completion of the portfolio work, and provide guidance for the on-ice evaluation.
