Kimberley Skating Club has worked hard to build a strong, enthusiastic club. Its strength is not just in the skater’s technical abilities and accomplishments, the atmosphere at the Civic Center in Kimberley when the skaters of all levels take to the ice, is one of energized fun. Every skater is encouraged to do their best and is given constructive feedback and the tools to help grow into healthy and happy skaters.



Suzanne McDonald (Starskate coach)

Suzanne has been a Skate Canada Coach for 36 years.  She first started coaching in Alberta, working with the Lethbridge, Taber, and Leduc Skating Clubs.  Being an avid skier and snow boarder, Suzanne chose to move to the mountains and has coached in Fernie, Trail, Castlegar and in Cranbrook, where she coached for 20 years.  Kimberley is where Suzanne has called home for the past 20 years.  

Suzanne is both a Competitive and Starskate Coach as well as a CanPowerskate Coach for hockey players.  She has instructed skaters at the Gold Levels in every discipline through her coaching career and her skaters have done well at both Regional and Provincial competitions in Alberta as well as British Columbia.  Suzanne loves to see skaters accomplish their goals in any aspect of skating and has had lots of fun coaching children in the sport.  

The Kimberley Skating Club is excited that Suzanne is returning to the rink to offer her expertise. Suzanne will be able to provide Kimberley skaters with the motivation and ability to reach any goals they set for themselves.
