Sean is back for Summer! When he was here, all the way from Sweden, last January, his camp was the most fun on ice we’d ever had. Come and join us again for Sean’s Summer Skating Camp!
This camp is an intensive way to level up your skating skills ready for the new year of skating! Each day you will work on edges, turns, jumps, spins. You’ll have some fun with the Power Skating which will help to make you stronger and faster on the ice. Skaters will also have a daily ballet class to improve their carriage, line, extension and musicality and an off ice session to develop your strength and jumps.

Sean has 32 years experience coaching in five different countries. He is currently coaching in Sweden where he has resided for the last nine years. Sean trained in the USA under Mr Don Laws and was Australian Senior Mens Silver Medalist, Junior Mens Champion (5x) and represented Australia five times at the Junior World Championships (1983 – 1987). Sean was the first Australian to win an International Competition at the 1985 Miner’s Lamp, an invitational competition in Poland.

He is currently an International Technical Specialist for Figure Skating, Skate Sweden Education and Development Committee Member and renowned choreographer for Singles, Pairs and Synchronised Skating.
Kristin began skating at our original Cockburn Ice Arena when she was only 5. Her talent was quickly identified by coaches, Valentin Kadzevitch and Irina Starovskaya. She became a strong member of their very first talent development group in 1996.
Kristin’s classical extension style and impressive skating skills were appreciated by local and interstate judges alike. She made the podium for every skate in every competition she was apart of. Kristin went on to train in the USA to develop her skills further prior to returning to Perth to begin her professional career.
Now a sought after coach herself, Kristin will join Sean for the Summer Camp in 2024.
