Claudia Glauser has been an Instructor with SFSA for 10 years. Originally from Toronto, she started skating when she was 10. Soon after she joined the Scarborough Figure Skating Club, and during her university years at University of Toronto she was on the U of T varsity figure skating team. She has achieved her senior level (senior silver freeskate & dance, 7th figure), and has taken level one. She has been teaching for 13 years.
Jen started skating at the Scarborough Figure Skating Club when she was four and became an amateur coach at the club. During her university education, she funded her studies by coaching a Learn-to-Skate program in Halifax. Jen returned to Toronto, where she has been coaching skating since 2003. When Jen’s not coaching, she works at Rogers Sportsnet.
SFSA has a Student Volunteer program. The Skating Assistant Volunteers, usually made up from advanced level participants in the program, assist the Instructors with inexperienced skaters by offering them more individual attention. Each Volunteer can log their time and apply it towards their secondary school volunteer hours required for graduation. This program was introduced in 2001 and is now a permanent fixture of SFSA. These Volunteers, who also take their own advanced lesson each week, spend a full three hours on the ice with the Instructors every Sunday.
We would like to thank David LeBer for his work in setting up this website.
