Maddie Bard

My name is Maddie Bard. I started in WTSC's own CanSkate program at four years old. I completely fell in love with the sport and haven't stopped skating since. I have been coaching CanSkate at WTSC since 2019 and recently became a Skate Canada Regional STARSkate coach. I have completed my gold interpretive. I am currently in school to earn my bachelors degree in Youth and Children's Studies and have further plans to become a teacher. I am looking forward to helping young skaters grow their passion for skating!

As a coach with Waterford Skating Club I look forward to taking on new students and helping them achieve their goals.  As a Skate Canada Nationally Trained Professional Coach with 40 yrs experience, I enjoy & have extensive experience working with all ages & abilities, from Learn to Skate – Gold Level, including Adults and Hockey Players up to NHL.  I am proud to say I have over 80 Skate Canada Gold Medalists: Figures, Free Skate, Dance, Artistic, Interpretive & Skills.  As a Skater representing Port Dover Skating Club I competed Internationally & won many medals & placed 6th & 8th at Nationals (Professional) then joined Delhi Precision (Synchro) Team where we became International Champions.  Also I had the opportunity to perform solo at Maple Leaf Gardens twice at AHL Toronto Marlies game and V.I.C.K.Y. show which was a benefit for visually impaired skaters.

Lastly I am very proud of my daughter Sophia who became a Skate Canada Quintuple Gold Medalist and for having the courage to skate with me to achieve our Skate Canada Couples Gold Interpretive.  Sophia has also taken her first steps to coaching after volunteer coaching for many years.

 

Looking forward to a successful year.

Courtney Mori

 

My name is Courtney Mori and I have been figure skating since the age of 3! I am currently a Skate Canada Regional Certified Coach and am qualified to coach any CankSkate or StarSkate level skater. My competitive singles skating career saw multiple Gold tests passed including Skills, Free Skate, and Singles Junior Competitive. I grew up in a small town and progressed to the big city of Barrie, Ontario where I was coached by elite professionals and skated alongside Olympic athletes.  When I’m not coaching, you can find me teaching as a Registered Early Childhood Educator. My coaching philosophy includes providing skaters with the tools for success in the skating world as well as life outside the arena. I am passionate about child development, nutrition, mental health, and physical literacy.  I am so excited to join the Waterford Tricenturena team to continue developing my coaching career, help our skater’s progress, and have fun!
