Cleve Shillingford, Club Coach, Powerskating, (250) 245-1415
Cleve Shillingford is a Skate Canada Power Skating Coach for the Fuller Lake Skating Club for over 10 years. He has taught kids of all ages and levels. His strength is in his ability to take kids that have difficulty skating and teach them to be effective skaters. He believes kids need to have fun when they are learning new skills. That keeps them coming back. Cleve is also the 2nd Vice President in charge of skating and development for Cowichan Minor Hockey Association. Many of his students have gone on to play competitive hockey. The kids are evaluated at every level and are given a report card at the end of the season letting them know what they need to work on. Cleve uses his 42 years of playing hockey both at the recreational and competitive level to assist him in letting his students know when a taught skill should be used when playing hockey. Cleve believes that being an effective skater not only makes the game more enjoyable but reduces the chance of the player being injured on the ice.
