Our STARSKATE Base Coaches

Ashley Holmes 

Coaching Philosophy

To create an environment that allows each skater the opportunity to nurture their dreams as an athlete. As coach, motivator and role model, I encourage skaters to develop a love for skating. It is this love for the sport that will ultimately guide the skater through the successes and challenges of their career. I believe it is important to acknowledge each skater's effort and to celebrate every achievement as it is both of these elements that act as stepping stones toward accomplishing a higher goal.
