Private Coaching

Skaters may hire a private coach (Professional Coach or Junior Coach) who is approved by the Board for generally 15 or 30 minutes per week. Skaters will pay their coach separately from the club. Please keep in mind, rates may vary from $20-$48 per hour for private lessons, based on the professional coach’s credentials. You will need to purchase your ice time and pay the club $15 per session.

Professional Coaches from outside of MIRFSC may coach, but need to be pre-approved by the Board.
