Summer 2015 was a very special summer for me. Not only did Kim Casavant join my team, but many groups were fortunate to also have Todd Liskowich (Peak Performance) and Brett Clark (former client and current Colorado Avalanche Development Coach) joining us on the ice.
Co-Instructor 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.
Kim filled, and had wait lists for, all of her 2015 classes!
