"I've watched Holly work with kids with her learn 2 skate program for several years and continue to be amazed at how quickly she helps inexperienced skaters learn to skate. Learning fundamentals at a young age is so important and she does an awesome job with the kids helping then to learn while having fun!"

Brady Peterson


"As the former Director of Hockey for Chisago Lakes Hockey Association (CLHA), I knew right away that partnering with Holly was the right move for us.  Over the years, we've built a strong relationship that benefits dozens and dozens of area kids each year.  Over this time registration in our association for the youngest kids has doubled!  This is largely attributed to our relationship with Holly.  What takes 10 of our coaches, Holly can do by herself!  She's awesome!"

"Great experience,  kids learned a lot to be ready for hockey,  excellent coach and very good with the kids."

My Story

My Passion

Ever since I was a very little girl I LOVED to ice skate. I would skate before school, during lunch time and then once again after school. My family lived in northern MN close to an old outdoor rink. Even though I was skating indoors often with clubs and classes, I would head down to that rink for more time on the ice and bring as many friends as I could. 

Next Steps

As I got older, I skated in lots of figure skating competitions of precision, singles and shows. At one time; I was skating through 4 different city clubs. I LOVED every moment of it.

Teaching, Natural fit

My family, abilities and my love for the Lord were growing. All I wanted to do was teach my own children and everyone else my PASSION. I owned and operated Cloquet Skating Club until I  moved closer to the cities, then built Ice Buddies in Wisconsin and Minnesota, also started and ran many Learn 2 Skate classes. Hockey and recreational skating became my new study!

Welcome to the next CHAPTER of learning, growing and advancing your skating skills!
