G2C Elite

G2C Elite is designed to support head coaches who have a vision of developing skaters from the grassroots stages to elite levels of competition.

We do this starting at the grassroots stage, with a focus on skaters that fit the profile of potential to become elite national, international, and world-level athletes.

G2C Elite Package

Our Elite package offers you a World/Olympic-level coach or choreographer on faculty for a minimum of 1 day, or up to 3 days (with a 5-hour minimum and 8-hour maximum per day).

Recommended number of participants: 6-15 skaters. They do not all have to fit the Elite profile; however, the focus will be on building the competitive skaters and scheduling should reflect the focus.

Schedule: TBD by the head coach and the requested G2C Elite faculty and will include, but not limited to:

  • 30-40 minute off-ice group class on jumps
  • 20-30 minute off-ice academic class on competition preparation
  • an on-ice small group of 2-3 skaters working on the same skills and private lessons, as ice times permit

Coaches have the option of doing one-on-one Q&A with Elite coach to review their training program for effectiveness and evaluate their skaters’ specific needs.

View Sample Schedules for more details, or contact Audrey Weisiger directly to inquire.

Fees: $125 per hour for instruction, plus transportation, lodging, and meals. The on-ice instruction can be during regular freestyle sessions with facility permission, which reduces the costs, as no ice rental fees are involved.
