Rachel Schuehle

I have been coaching since 2006 and have coached with the Bismarck Figure Skating Club since 2012. I offer private instruction/lessons in the disciples of Freeskate, Moves in the Field, and Dance. My coaching philosophy focuses on empowering skaters to achieve their goals through dedication and perseverance. I place emphasis on understanding how skating builds upon itself and I encourage my students to develop a thorough understanding of how the each element works. I firmly believe that a successful season begins with strong communication between the coach, skater, and parents.

I currently have openings for new students. My lesson fees are: $36/hour.

I prefer to be contacted by text message, but email works too!
