Andrea Dorico (Base Coach)

Currently not accepting new students.




Number of Years Coaching Experience:

March Kanata Skating Club: 7 years





My coaching philosophy is primarily to bring out the best in each skater as they pursue their dreams. Using my own passion for the sport of figure skating, I will help skaters develop their own love and dedication. I believe in fostering a fun and positive environment while guiding skaters through the successes and challenges the sport brings. I believe life on the ice plays a huge role in the development of each skater off the ice and I wish to be a positive influence and role model throughout their skating experience.
