In addition to coaches, there are Program Assistants, also known as PA's. Program Assistants are individuals who have been trained by the Drayton Valley Skating Club's CANSkate Administrator to assist in the delivery of the CANSkate program. They are all graduates of the CANSkate program, and many have continued their training in our STARSkate program.
