Skate Canada Remembers Hall of Famer Ron Vincent

Skate Canada was saddened to hear about the passing of esteemed Hall of Fame member Ron Vincent on October 8, 2023 at 96 years of age. 

Vincent’s dedication to the sport of figure skating spanned decades, first starting as an athlete and moving on to become a performer, a coach and an administrator. 

While his contributions to the sport were immeasurable, one of his key achievements was spearheading the development of courses for the National Coach Certification Program (NCCP). Vincent was a well-respected coach who stressed the importance of coaching standards and his tireless efforts helped Skate Canada become a leader in national coaching certification programs.  

As a Hall of Fame member, he leaves behind a legacy that will continue to inspire and shape the future of figure skating in Canada and beyond.  

Skate Canada would like to offer its sincere condolences to Ron’s family and friends.

    I so enjoyed working with Ron at Canada Ice Dance Theatre. I’ll always recall him saying, don’t look down at the ice to see if you spin has travelled, instead .. assume it to be centred. RIP.
