“I’m grateful for all coaches I’ve worked with but I’ve never met a coach so enthusiastic with a wealth of knowledge who will work as tirelessly on coaching me as I do for my skating! She’s the real deal.”
“Jill is passionate about ice skating, coaching, and her students. This passion is contagious, as exhibited by her student’s enthusiasm for skating. She is a hands-on coach who spends her time on the ice with her students, modeling the skills she teaches…"
“Jill exudes enthusiasm for the sport of Figure Skating. She encourages success in others and shows them the many ways they can work towards improving their goals. Jill surrounds herself with supportive and energetic coworkers who share her teaching style.”
For 20+ years, Jill Mintz-Hodyl has been sharing the gift of learning to ice skate with people of all ages.
Jill's father taught her the sport and art of moving across the ice at a young age. These special memories forged her passion for teaching others how to ice skate.
Along with her team of professional coaches, Jill hopes that the lessons students learn on the ice will serve them well, on the ice and beyond.
Learning how to ice skate is truly a gift that keeps on giving.
