Welcome to the Coaches Corner!
The RSA values our coaches and are seeking ways to improve
our services to our SRSTA Members. As a start, we have created this page as a source to feed information to our coaches. As a coach/instructor, we
welcome your feedback on ways to improve our services to you. We look
forward to working with you to continue building a fun, safe program for
skaters of all ages and abilities!

a current Learn to Skate Teacher, SRSTA, SCA or RHCA member with the RSA, you will not be accepted into this members only group. At this time we are not accepting RSA Judges in this group.
New Achievement Program Forms
We have been working to revise the Achievement Program forms. Check out the link below to access the new forms and if you aren't happy with them, you can access the old forms there as well. I encourage you to give the new forms a try, as they were designed to cut back on the amount of repetitive information you have to fill out.
