Meet Our Coaches!

Denise Harris

     Denise grew up skating with the Woodville Skating club until the age of eight-teen. She attended Seneca College for two years and graduated from their figure skating technique coaching program. She began her coaching career in 1992 with the Cannington Figure Skating Club and returned to Woodville’s Club in 1997. Denise is a level 2 certified coach, with her level 3 theory and technical. She is also a certified power skating instructor.

     Throughout her coaching career, Denise has coached numerous skaters through their gold tests, and has had some skaters qualify and win provincials at the STARSkate Level. Her favourite thing about being a coach is watching skaters achieve what they did not think they could, as well as the great friendships and bonds that she is able to create with her skaters and their families. She also enjoys seeing friendships develop on the ice, and watching each skater grow as individuals.

      Arlene is no stranger to our club. She coached from 1986 until 2000 with Woodville. She coached many of our Alumni through their gold tests and many successful competitions. We were thrilled to welcome her back to the club in 2020. You can find Arlene out on the ice during all of our programs.

   Kathryn started skating at the age of 3 following in her mother's footsteps. She has been part of the Woodville Skating Club ever since. 

She is a double gold skater who completed her gold skills at the age of 12 and more recently completed her gold artistic.

   Kathryn is currently still competing in star 7 and star 8 and has qualified twice for provincials in star 6 and once in star 7. 

   Throughout her skating career, Kathryn found a passion for coaching when she began helping as a PA on the CanSkate session at a young age. She loves working with all ages, especially kids, and plans on taking her coaching to the next level by completing her regional course. 

   Kathryn is a grade 12 student at Fenelon Falls Secondary School and plans on attending medical school for a bachelor of health science after she graduates high school.
