"I truly love the Master Classes and receive so much more than coaching techniques from them. The support, advice and understanding from the other coaches (and of course Ben and Jadene) is the major reason I attend and love these classes. The "Coaches Circle" is truly a palpable force with Ben & Jadene as our Jedi Masters. 

Thank you for this gift."

"The axel class was awesome!! I enjoyed it and so did all of our skaters. I think that the skaters were able to take a lot of information with them that will help them with the success of their axel. The mix of on and off ice was great it gave everyone a chance to warm up as our arena was quite cold. The kids felt very comfortable with Ben & Jadene! Everything was well organized and ran quite smooth. I was able to spend most of my time enjoying the seminar and not running around doing organizational things. I would recommend the seminar to anyone and I hope that in the future we would have the opportunity to host another master class. [Other]... coaches are very interested in attending another seminar. Our parents mentioned that they would love to host again as it was minimal work for such a great outcome! We really appreciate having the opportunity to hold this seminar in Edson.

OK - THIS IS CRAZY!!! I AM NOT KIDDING…..
Tonight I had a young girl come skate….and she only skates 2 days a week right now….and she never has done an axel but she is a really nice jumper to begin with….but no one has ever really worked on the Axel with her either as she was a little timid about jumping…..so I have been working with her for the last 3 months….her first competition she came 2nd in Freeskate….Star 4 and she has never gotten a medal in freeskate before….so she was excited…..I thought that she might start to want to skate more and she was starting to get more excited about skating….so she couldn't come to the seminar on Saturday….so I said to her that I would like to introduce her to the 6 step/point system that we learned with Ben…..so I showed her and went through it with her….and then I put her in the harness to get her to get a feel for it…..she ended up landing 3 on her toe all the way around in the harness!!  I was excited….but I wanted to see if she could do it outside the 'help'….well didn't she start landing axel after axel afar axel…..she is sooooo excited that she can't stop texting me!!! Ha ha….. I am soooo proud of her ….. and absolutely amazed to see if right in front of my own eyes….it was unbelievable….I just got home….and haven't even changed yet….I had to let you know…. sorry to keep bothering you but you need to know that your seminars are working….your through process and creativity are beyond what I have ever thought could be so detailed!!!

Thanks!!!

Live, Love, Laugh, Skate!!

Eva Davies, Coach


I thought the SNAP class was excellent. I learned a lot, but also confirmed we are on the right track here at LFSC. I have been utilizing many of the ideas learned and seeing some success for our skaters already! (though I understand Rome wasn’t built in a day) The whole seminar was very motivational and has given all of us coaches new energy and enthusiasm while we are on the rink. I’ve noticed skaters reviewing techniques they learned as well, so glad we were able to attend! Please keep me in the loop if there are other seminars in the area!

Linda Mix-Kondratski, Coach - Leduc FSC, AB


I'd love to have you guys out here again for another workshop. The last one went over so well and everyone was so pleased with it! I'll keep you posted if it's something our club can accommodate.

Helen Ramful, Coach – Lloydminster, AB

Really liked the fact that they could watch themselves on tape. Loved the organization of the event, how skaters went on different sessions throughout the day. My daughter told me she learned a lot and wasn’t tired at all. Great Job!!

Leida Kodra, Skating Parent – Calgary, AB

I watched my single axel first and saw that my landing leg was very bent in the air affecting my air time. I worked on this and when I went again I did the best double axel I had done in a long time.

You guys ROCK! Thank you so much for being so amazing and passionate about our sport. Yes we are ONE team! …This is exactly what we need :)
