Off Ice Coaching

Lisa Eldrige

Hi my name is Lisa, I will be running the off-ice sessions for the Intermediate, Senior and High Performance groups. I am a CSEP certified personal trainer and I have been working as an athletic trainer for the Alberta Sport Development Centre since April 2016. As a trainer for ASDC, I have worked with a variety of athletes around the region from various sports. I have been involved with sport my entire life, hence why I am very passionate about my career and giving back to the sport community. When I am not training athletes or clients, I am coaching gymnastics.  I have been coaching for the past 9 years and during that time have coached recreational, developmental, and competitive provincial /national level athletes. Along with my CSEP-CPT certification, I have received my Fitness Leadership Diploma through the Grande Prairie Regional College and a variety NCCP certificates. I am trained in NCCP foundations-Active Start, Artistic, and Trampoline, certified level 2 artistic and trampoline, and trained level 3 trampoline. This is my second year returning to work with the figure skating club. I really enjoyed working with the figure skaters last year. I think the sport is amazing and I enjoy training athletes who train in another form of an artistic sport. Physical preparation is a key component for success in sport and I am excited to play a role in preparing these talented athletes for success. I look forward to meeting all of the new athletes, as well as continue to work with the returning athletes!
