Team Coach - Anne McGraw

NCCP National Level Certified Coach (Formerly NCCP Level III)
 

I am level 3 certified in 2 disciplines, single and Ice dancing. My passion is competitive Ice dancing, choreography, edges, movement and polishing. I'm a perfectionist with a lot of patience! I did all my training as a skater in Quebec and taught there until I moved to BC in 1986. I taught in multiple clubs in the lower mainland for 3 years and I was also a part of a traveling ice show on plastic Ice until I moved to PG in 1989. In PG I took skaters to a national level in singles and Ice Dancing and I choreographed for national level Pair teams, all with the Spruce City SC. The highlight of my career was to be selected for the BC Apprenticeship program at Worlds 2001 in Vancouver. It was an honor and an unforgettable experience. In 2002, I moved to Kelowna and decided to take a step back from the sport to be more involved with our 3 sons, now age 26 and twins age 24. I have been freelancing with the Mt Boucherie SC on and off since then. I live a very active life and my husband and I love to travel. You might find me at Spinco, hiking knox mountain or at the Pilates studio but in the winter, you will find me on a tropical beach :)
