Lee Barkell, World and Olympic Figure Skating Coach,  is hosting Truro Skate with a Champion 2019!

Lee is one of Canada’s most sought-after coaches. He is currently coaching Gabrielle Daleman and Stephen Gogolev, and has coached many talented skaters in the past including Jeffrey Buttle and Nobunari Oda.  

This year’s event is a great complement to last year’s event with Patrick Chan. Last year, skaters and coaches got to hang out with one of Canada’s most beloved and accomplished figure skaters. This year, it is all about having training time with one of Canada’s greatest coaches.

The event is open for skaters from Star 2 through competitive levels and promises to be spectacular. Lee’s seminars are among the best on offer. It will be a very full day that includes two hours of ice sessions with Lee for each group. And, of course, we are lining up some high quality off-ice sessions for you.
