Coach Wincy

Instructor

Wincy has been passionately involved in skating sports her whole life. Starting at the age of 4, she has pursued figure skating, inline and quad skating for competition, performance, enjoyment and health. Skating has given her a life-long medium to express herself, and a love for movement, which has added value to every aspect of her life. Through coaching and certifying others to coach, she endeavors to share this opportunity with others. 

Having Bachelors in education and kinesiology, Wincy’s coaching philosophy reflects these ideals. She believes that teaching accurate foundations, and focusing on each student’s overall development, can encourage sports as a tool for life-long personal growth. For over 18 years, Wincy has been working and volunteering as a coach, instructor, trainer and educator in various fields, and has worked with thousands of kids and adults of diverse ages and abilities.
