Sporting gong for skate coach Clare

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

A SKATE coach from Uttoxeter has been named Sports Coach of the Year at a prestigious borough ceremony. Clare Hudson, from Uttoxeter, received the award at a glittering event hosted by East Staffordshire Borough Council on Friday night. The ESBC Sports Coach of the Year title is given to qualified coaches who have made an impact in their sport by increasing participation or improving individual or team levels and being committed to the highest standards of coaching.

Clare was nominated for her positive and encouraging attitude which has inspired, guided and influenced pupils at Uttoxeter.
A spokesman for Planet Ice Uttoxeter said: “Clare assists in helping her skaters achieve their personal goals and spends much of her time travelling around the country to support her pupils at competitions, events and tests.
“Her happiness and positivity is contagious on the ice and she is a much loved and valued coach at the Uttoxeter rink.
“We all wish her many congratulations on her very much deserved award.”
Clare began skating at the age of three and later took lessons at Oxford ice rink with World Professional Champion, Martin Minshull.
She has competed at national competitions and worked her way up to Inter Gold Level in the National Ice Skating Association tests.
Although she qualified as a skating coach at the age of 19, she embarked on a career in show skating at Alton Towers, travelled the world with Holiday on Ice and also took part in the Dutch version of Dancing on Ice.
After a short break to have her little boy, Cameron, Clare started coaching at the rink in Uttoxeter when it opened in 2012.
