CSC Coaching Staff
Since 1992 the Clavet Skating Club has attracted high calibre coaches who help us support the philosphy of skating is fun to learn, inspirational to watch, and requires the training and athleticism of any rigorous sport along with the grace and agility of a ballerina, the speed of a sprinter, the creativity of an artist and the talent of an entertainer.
Laura Marquette - Head Coach
Skating has been my passion since I was young: as a coach, it is so rewarding to come to the rink each day and see the skaters grow and develop their own love for this sport! Over the past 15 years, I have been fortunate to attend a number of different seminars and coaching projects and currently sit on Skate Canada's National Coaches Core Committee, as well as support the development of new coaches across the country as a CanSkate and Regional Coach Course Facilitator and Coach Evaluator. I have received both my B.A and B.Ed. from the University of Saskatchewan, and currently coach and support our STARSkate programs, Rising STARSkate programs, CanPower, program and CanSkate program. I live in Saskatoon with my husband, son and our dog.

Lauren Mitchell - CanSkate, Rising Star and Jr. StarSkate Coach
My skating career started at the Clavet Skating Club where I developed a love for the sport! I started coaching to share my passion for skating with others. Throughout my years with the club, I have had the opportunity to develop life long friendships, memories, and skating achievements. During my time as a skater, I successfully passed two Gold level tests. Now, as a coach, I am both CanSkate and Regional Coach certified. When not at the rink, I am a student at the University of Saskatchewan, in the College of Agriculture.
Shelby Sawatzky - CanSkate, Rising Star and Jr. StarSkate Coach
I have been coaching for 9 years and am Regional Coach Certified. I am also CanPower Certified. Away from the rink, I have completed my Bachelors of Education specializing in Elementary Education. I am currently teaching grade 4 in Clavet.
As a skater, I have accomplished my Gold Freeskate Dance and Skills. I spent 10 years on Skate Canada Saskatchewan's High Performance Team.
My coaching philosophy is that skating has given me so much that I want to give back through the power of instruction. I coach with energy, honesty and excitement. I strive to provide a safe space for children to be themselves while ensuring work ethic and positive self worth that lasts a lifetime.
