About Us

Kathryn Kavanagh has been running Skateboard and Inline Skate School since 2006 when she took over the school run by Gloria Floria for many years. Kathryn firmly believes in providing a safe and encouraging learning environment for skaters and scooters of all ages.  In fact, you're likely see her 2 children skating circles around her at Sherwood or Shell Park during classes.

Kathryn, who grew up in Montréal, Quebec, earned her Bachelor of Commerce from Concordia University, worked for many years in the computer industry as a programmer, purchaser, facilitator, business analyst and manager. She left corporate life, backpacked around South East Asia with her husband then decided to try her hand at being an entrepreneur. Running Skateboard and Inline Skate School has been a very rewarding experience!

Our coaches are a team of dedicated skateboarders, inline skaters and scooters who are passionate about their sport and are always working at taking their skills to a higher level. Many of them started out as beginners at the school themselves.  We are very fortunate to have attracted a great group of guys and girls who are serious about teaching the next generation.
