11 year old T1 player. Probably about an hour a week as he skates 3 practices and 2 games per week.

You’re geography is lacking. OP said Worcester area. Billerica and/or any of the Valley rinks is not Worcester area.

Re: Skating Coach

Any rink in your area with a professional figure skating coach associated with it. Ask for 30 minutes a week, every week of the year with a focus on edgework. If the coach will be there, my kid will skate on Christmas morning before presents he likes it so much.

2 months - a different skater will be on the ice.
2 years - if he / she is a gamer you will have a high level hockey player

Think of figure skating lessons like ballet lessons to a football running back. Absolutely required!!

Thank Jeremy!

Re: Skating Coach

John Dillon explosive power skating & Jeremy Wilson really only two top skating coaches during the season. There are some others but they do more in the off season as they are all daddy coaches in season!!!

I reached out at the beginning of summer to both of them. Neither responded.

I would find a figure skating coach.

I wouldn’t be upset that they didn’t. One can barely figure out how a cellphone works and the other is too Elite to feel he needs to return messages.

Re: Skating Coach

Stx and Pux does private, or small group at NESC.

Re: Skating Coach

Styx and Pux is run by a complete bafoon. Stay away from this guy.

Re: Skating Coach

Lol. Hit the nail on the head. I saw him trying to teach little kids how to skate and it was embarrassing.

I have seen this guy during skating lessons. On his phone, chatting with the other instructors when they are working with other clients, interrupting other instructors, taking 2-3 off ice breaks (probably because his pants wont stay up). Just because someone once played at a college level doesn't mean they know how to teach.



Re: Skating Coach

Who played at a college level? Styx and Pux Guy? Guy never went to college. Tells everyone he did though.

Re: Skating Coach

Dena Taylor, John Dillon, Dmitri with DB Skating Pros

Re: Skating Coach

Dimitri?? Last name?

Re: Skating Coach

Jeremy Wilson who runs Versatile out of Marlboro

Re: Skating Coach

Igor Gratchev works out of Canton Ice House best in the business. Pricey but you get what you pay for.
