Our Coaches are Becoming Product Knowledge Certified

Written By: Riedell | April 25, 2014

With our all-new product line and website, new Ready-Set-Skate events and a growing list of skaters, Riedell has been busy staying at the forefront of the skating community!

We hosted our first Riedell Product Knowledge 2014 coaches seminar last week at the Schwan Super Rink in Blaine, Minn. Barb Yackel from the PSA, longtime friend of Riedell and figure skating ambassador, was there to introduce the event and help coaches understand more about the positive direction that Riedell Skates is headed.

Some of the topics covered in the seminar included:

  • All-new 2014 product line – Riedell’s newest lineup includes everything from recreational to instructional to competitive models. TriFusion reinforcement, maintenance-free blades and guaranteed lightness and strength make this lineup our best one yet!
  • Ready-Set-Skate – Riedell will help organize days to show up at skating facilities to give skaters and parents the royal treatment on skate fittings, appropriate styles for skaters’ levels, recommendations on where to purchase skates and a special skate package that will ONLY be available at the event.
  • Our skaters – Riedell supports some of the most hard-working and talented skaters in the world. We’re proud of what they’ve accomplished and where they’re going next!

We would like to thank and congratulate the coaches who joined us for this kick-off event and those who took this opportunity to become Product Knowledge Certified:

  • Kelly Crumpton
  • Valerie Turgeon
  • Jane Schaber
  • Amber Karcher-Ramos
  • Rene Gelecinskyj
  • Samantha Kirckof
  • Stephanie Eckardt

It’s important to keep our coaches in the know about what we’re up to here at Riedell Skates. If you’re a coach and wish to attend a Product Knowledge seminar to become Product Knowledge Certified, please contact Chris Chu at chrisc@riedellskates.com.
