I coached at Ice Vault when it first opened, before I relocated.  It's a beautiful facility and very busy.

Karen should think about reaching out to students at local colleges - many of them taught LTS before they went away to school.

Ice vault lost a lot of junior and regular LTS coaches this year because they either went away to colleges out of state, or graduated and got full time jobs  ;D

Same thing happened in our area, but the skaters who moved to this area to attend college helped fill the gap last year.  That's why I suggested the idea.

The downside to using HS or College skaters for LTS is that you have to be really flexible with scheduling or they'll just quit.  By the same toke, it bugs skating families to have a different instructor each week on a group lesson, especially if they have different passing standards.
