Liane Davis Knows How To
New Instructor –Liane Davis introduces Kim Casavant
Kim grew up playing both hockey and ringette. I met her in 1992 when I was hired to work with her team for the season. We kept in touch and when she was attending the University of Regina, I hired her to help me teach some of my winter programs. She was excellent with our learn to skate up to, and including, our advanced power skating students. I would have kept her as my assistant but,In 2001, she married and moved to Tisdale. She continued teaching skating and, since then, has been very busy working with players of all skill levels.
For many summers she has been on the ice with me assisting with all of my groups from Atom through to Pros.
I believe that I have finally found the right person to start taking over some of my groups. Contrary to rumors, I am not retiring, I just want to work less during the summer. I am confident that Kim will do a great job as she begins teaching the formats of my classes.
