Trisha BeamClub Coach
I am extremely excited to start my beginning steps to become a Skate Canada Certified Coach.  It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, and to be able to do so in my own hometown club is sure to be a positive experience.
Currently I hold a NCCP Club Coach – CANSkate In-Training status.  I have previously volunteered as a Program Assistant for 7 years and have skated for 10 years with the Norwich District Skating Club. Skating will always be a strong passion of mine, and I hope to be able to guide our young skaters to achieve their goals and love the sport just like I do!  The joy of seeing their BIG smiles and giving them high fives when they have achieved a goal makes it all worth it!  I will be coaching CANSkate on Mondays and Wednesdays for the Fall/Winter Season.  I’m looking forward to a great season and the new experiences ahead!

I am happy to be back at the Norwich & District Skating Club this season. I skated with this club for 14 years and have decided to come back to my home away from home, where my skating career began. I have been a PA for 10 years. I currently have my CANSkate In-Training coaching status. Skating is my passion ever since I began and I love being out on the ice and seeing each skater smiling and achieving their goals. I believe that ever child should learn to skate and have fun learning a new sport. I look forward to seeing everyone out on the ice!  I will be coaching CANSKate on Mondays and Wednesday for the Fall/Winter Season.
