Our Staff

Here To Serve You

Executive Staff

In the best combination of figure skating, hockey, and so much more, our executive staff has teamed up to provide you with the best programs possible! You won’t want to miss anything they do! 


No ordinary skaters or coaches!

We are in a unique situation in Austin, with many skaters and coaches joining the Chaparral family due to its proximity to the world- class University of Texas. We count among our current family and alumni not only skating coaches with impressive competitive and performance resumes, but also numerous highly skilled professionals, including Ph.D.s and college professors, doctors, attorneys, astronomers, engineers, archaeologists, and more. Our skaters tend to excel in high school and college, seeking rigorous curricula and honors programs.


We believe the dedication and discipline required to be successful in figure skating lends itself to other areas of participants’ lives, teaching them the life skills they need to be equally successful in these demanding vocations.
