Jennifer Brewin (formerly Jennifer Douglas), grew up and learned to skate in southern Ontario where she not only achieved Gold Levels in Figures (Skills), Dance and Freeskate but also competed in Dance and Freeskate.
Jennifer moved to Pentiction where she helped to partner students through their Gold dances. Upon her move to Salmon Arm, Jennifer began teaching with the Salmon Arm Skating Club. Since 1990 she has been a freelance coach, then assistant coach and, for the last decade, the Head Coach.
Jennifer is a Certified Skate Canada Coach for CanSkate, PreCanSkate, PowerSkate, and StarSkate programs. She has coached students to Gold Levels in Dance, Skills, Free Skate and Interpretive. Jennifer is Certified in First Aid and CPR.
Jennifer’s main goal is to teach people to skate, to enjoy it, and to be able to actively participate in skating from the ages of 3 to 83. There is a place for everyone. Developing a well-rounded individual and creating a positive sport environment is important not only to Jennifer but mirrors the philosophy of the Salmon Arm Skating Club.
We have a group of Progam Assistants that help with younger students in the Pre-CanSkate, CanSkate and PowerSkate programs. These Program Assistants have received training with our Club Coach, Jennifer. They work under her direction to set up and monitor stations. This year our Program Assistants include Jerra Creasy, Jennifer Fowler, Crystal de Boer, Amber Mackie, and many of our Sr. and Jr. StarSkaters!
