Avery Bandel

With over 20 years of coaching experience scattered across 5 different states and 3 time zones, Coach Avery has seen and done a bit of everything. She has been on all sides of skating as a competitor, coach, and even a judge. She has directed countless shows, been the Director of Learn to Skate for several clubs, and even run an intra-state competition series for a few years. On a whim, she was convinced by a friend to enter an adult skating competition. Though she had been retired for 15 years, had no coach, and only 20 minutes of practice ice every week, she is a 3-time National Qualifier, 2-time National Medalist, and the 2015 Adult National Champion. Coach Avery loves to work with skaters of all ages and levels and strives to ensure her students love skating as much as she does.
Avery is currently accepting new private students.
