I have always loved skating and started when I was three years old in Wapella, SK. I competed provincially and began coaching training 28 years ago. I love coaching and seeing my skaters become competent and confident on and off the ice. I have coached skaters who have become Olympians, drafted by the NHL, nurses and teachers who have grown into amazing members of the communities they live in.
You can find me in hockey skates or painted figure skates coaching PowerSkate, CanSkate and StarSkate in Brandon and Carberry. I am also Skate Manitoba's CanSkate Learning Facilitator and get the opportunity to train new coaches in Manitoba.
Foster the love for sport, no matter what sport.
Create a fun, supportive, encouraging and safe place for skaters to grow as skaters, athletes, students and people too.
As a coach - I promise to continually learn and grow. I will always do my best until I know better, when I know better, I'll do better.
Reflecting on my coaching career, I am extremely grateful to the clubs, my skaters and parents for their trust and support.
When I am not on the ice, you can find me at work as a creative writer at StarFM and Q Country. Spending time with my daughters, Rayna and Rochelle, and our dog, Ziggy. Running, hiking, biking, lifting weights or crocheting on my couch!

My name is Tia Huston and I am originally from Russell, MB. I am currently attending Brandon University taking education. Growing up I have always had a passion for figure skating and wanted to continue with this sport. So I took my CanSkate course and became certified! I helped out with skating in Russell before moving to Brandon and look forward to a great year with Skate Brando
