Pippa Teague

Personal Profile:
I have been coaching and skating in professional shows since 2000. I love performing! I have skated with various European shows, Disney on Ice and have been involved with shows in the New England area too. I was part of the skating cast of the 2016 opening ceremony for the World Figure Skating Championships. Since moving to Boston I have been involved in Theater on ice and coached the Novice team to a silver medal in 2018 and pewter medal in 2016 as well as skating on the Senior team for 5 seasons. I was part of the choreography team for Ice Chips 2012-2018 and Frog Pond Christmas show. I enjoy assisting skaters to achieve their goals whether it’s passing their tests or doing well at competitions. I enjoy coaching all ages and levels as long as you are passionate about the sport and want to learn. My coaching focus is moves, freestyle, choreography, spinner and off ice strength and conditioning. I have a PSA rating in moves (certified) and group (registered) and am a certified personal trainer.

Outside of skating, I like to enjoy the outdoors -snowboarding in the winter and hitting the beach in the summer!

Coaching Philosophy:
I want to pass on the knowledge and passion I have for figure skating to all who want to learn, making them the best athletes they can be. Skating is more than just a sport. It teaches discipline and gives people a huge sense of character and achievement, both physically and mentally. I have a strong athlete focused coaching style and strive to make sure skaters are achieving their goals whilst maintaining a positive attitude and love for the sport.
