Sadie Finnebraaten

Canskate Certified Coach

My name is Sadie Finnebraaten and I’m 16 years old and in grade 11. I’ve been skating since I was 3 years old. I started at the Beaverlodge club and then transferred to the GP Skating Club when I was 9. I’m currently competing at the women’s Gold Freeskate level after leaving the Novice competitive stream. I have completed my Gold Artistic and Gold Skills testing and am currently working towards my Gold Freeskate and Gold dances. I also enjoy riding and showing my reining horse, dirt biking, and wake-surfing. I am currently coaching the Canskate and Pre-Canskate levels. My favourite thing about coaching is getting to interact and help the little ones make their dreams come true.
