Carmen Van Wyk Club Coach 

Hello, my name is Carmen Van Wyk. I am 16 years old and have been skating at Norwich District Skating Club for 13 years. I have also been a PA here for four years. I am a trained CanSkate coach and I plan to be working toward and receiving my certification as a CanSkate coach during the time I coach here. I am so excited to coach here and be apart of this club’s coaching team. While I coach CanSkate I will also be PAing session one and skating on session 3 where I am working on my senior silver dance and gold freeskate. I am very eager to bring what I have learned as a skater and as a PA into coaching. I have always wanted to be a coach and it is amazing to finally be one.
