Our Coaches

Cynthia McHale

Regional Coach Certified, BA Outdoor Leadership & Recreation

Cynthia’s love of figure skating started when she was just three years old in Meaford Ontario where she skated until the age of 19. Upon graduating she moved across the country where she got her BA in Outdoor Recreation & Leadership. She worked in that field for 15 years designing and executing programs in Canoeing, Whitewater Kayaking, backpacking, and Rock Climbing where she worked with all types of athletes from first timers to world class level athletes. She returned to her first love - skating - a few years ago when her own kids got involved in the sport. As our director of programming she has been applying her expertise in athlete development to our programs and loves being on the ice with all our skaters. She strives to create a positive and encouraging learning environment that allows our skaters to thrive and reach their full potential.
