Janelle Friesen

Janelle started skating at the age of 2 and skated for 17 years before she decided to stop skating and start coaching. She is a triple gold skater, meaning she completed her gold dances, gold skating skills and gold interpretive. When Janelle is not at the rink coaching, she works full time, enjoys watching hockey, camping and riding motorcycle with her husband in the summer and spending time with family and friends.

Janelle is the head-coach for the Winkler Skating Club, managing the CanSkate, GroupSkate and AdultSkate programs. Janelle is also training two new coaches for the Winkler Skating Club and enjoys mentoring young skaters in their skating journey.

Janelle also offers private lessons for skaters wishing to have a few extra lessons in preparation for tests and competitions:
