A bit about Holly...
I live in Milden with my husband Travis and our daughters Ella and Taylor. I grew up in Milden and we moved back in 2010 to build our family and business. I have been coaching since 2003 and worked with smaller clubs as well as the Lethbridge Skating Club before moving back to Sask. I now coach in Outlook(2012), Rosetown(2011) and Milden(2011) and enjoy teaching all levels of the sport.
In addition to my on ice coaching I am involved with the development of skating in Saskatchewan. I have sat on the Coaches Core Committee and the Skating Programs committee for 4 years and enjoy getting to be involved with the planning of events and programs in our province.
I enjoy all aspects of the sport but my passion is synchronized skating after competing for 7 years and attending Nationals twice with my team. My coaching philosophy is to encourage skaters to take advantage of every opportunity that is available to them. I want skaters to grow, take risks and become hardworking and responsible athletes.

A bit about Kalene...
Hi Everyone! My name is Kalene Eliason and I am entering my 2nd year coaching with the Outlook Skating Club. I grew up in Rosetown, Sk where I began skating at age 4 in the Canskate Program. I continued with the Rosetown Elkette Sating Club until the age of 18. I have numerous years of coaching experience with the Rosetown Skating Club’s Canskate Program as well as coaching with the Biggar Skating Club from 2009-2011 in their StarSkate Program. Aside from coaching, I competed throughout my teenage years at regional and provincial competitions. In 2006, I attended the Saskatchewan Winter Games to compete in Freeskate and was invited to the join the developmental team for Skate Saskatchewan. I always had a passion for dance and was able to achieve my Gold level dances in my graduating year. After a few years off the ice, I was reminded how much I love skating and coaching with joining Outlook’s club last season – I look forward to this upcoming year!
We are super proud of the program assistants who volunteer their time on the ice for hundreds of hours each year mentoring the next generation of skaters in the CanSkate program. We have close to a dozen program assistants each year!
