About the National Performance Centre
The National Performance Centre was founded by Skate Canada in 2014 with the mandate to support Skate Canada coaches and skaters along their path to personal excellence. These unique centres will play an integral role in supporting Skate Canada’s long-term strategy for developing athletes. The "in-house" and "out-reach" development programs, seminars, workshops, and research studies will help ensure Canada remains on the forefront of the world stage for skating excellence.
