Cambridgeshire Artistic Roller Skating Club was formed in March 2017 and we begun our sessions in August 2017. We now have a team of improver skaters and continue to grow in numbers with our grades skaters. As a club we are very proud of where we are now and proud of the skaters we have as members of our club. We aim to provide a fun and friendly environment for skaters to learn, make friends and eventually compete to the highest standards.
Zoe King - Head Coach
I have been skating ever since I was 12, so at the age of 27 I have been around the skating world for what seems like a lifetime! I could never imagine my life without skating. I am a preliminary standard skater for figures and freestyle, but my main focus is on dance, in which I am silver standard. I compete in the British Championships every year and have represented my country competing internationally. I have also trained with international coaches abroad.
I have a passion for coaching and I began coaching other skaters during grades sessions when I was 15. I love seeing skaters improve, and also finding fun ways for them to learn. Our first stater session was an amazing success and I absolutely loved every minute of it. We now have our regular grades sessions and have so many skaters attending these, and so many improvers.
I work full time as a Critical Care Nurse which I enjoy very much. I am very excited that I am starting my own club with my best friend Rachel too!
Thank you everyone for your continued support.
Chris Farrier - Coach
I haven't been skating all that long but I now cant wait to get my skates on! Having been to an International Gala as a spectator watching Zoe skate, I could see the passion she has for the sport and the hard work she puts into her routines. I am a firm believer in working hard to achieve your goals. Ever since then I have been learning how to skate and I have now competed at four competitions in figures and dance events.
I work full time as a police officer, trying to juggle the hectic life of shift work around time outside work skating and doing other things. I am fully committed to helping our club grow and coach skaters to the highest standards.
I am very excited to be part of this club and the project we have embarked on. It is great to see everyone every week and see them enjoying themselves. Our aim is to make our club a fun and friendly atmosphere whereby they can learn to skate and progress.
