Katie Rauber

Learn ToSkate Camp - SNOW PLOW SAM - BASIC 3

As one of the first members of Southern Valley Figure Skating Club, I have been active in skating for 35+ years in some capacity or another. I represented SVFSC for most of my competitive skating career and started my coaching career in the first apprenticeship program offered by SVFCS. This taught me the fundamentals of teaching that helped coach, guide and build a successful skating school in Brookings, SD, Huron, SD and Watertown, SD. I've also judged Leap N' Compete competitions for SVFSC for several years. Skating, in all forms, is a right of passage for so many people in the area and I am happy to be a small part of keeping the tradition alive by offering lessons to those who want to learn.
