8 Points Centre of Excellence is a comprehensive figure skating program designed to integrate athletic training with academic success and family balance. Our program is for athletes and coaches who expect the very best from themselves.
At 8 Points, our mission is to provide an environment where skaters are encouraged to pursue personal growth and development opportunities in the achievement of their skating goals. Our program is run out of the Angus Glen Community Center and in partnership with the York Region District School Board and Bill Crothers Secondary School.
The program at 8 Points Centre of Excellence is unique within our community. We strive for athletic and academic excellence in an environment, which nurtures the well being of our skaters. Our program is intimate by design and fosters life skills such as collaboration, encouragement and motivation. Our holistic approach to training focuses not only on a skater’s development on the ice, but also includes off-ice training, nutrition and general wellness.
We have an incredible pool of coaching talent at 8 Points and we welcome new coaches and their students to train in a positive and supportive learning environment.
