It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Skate Great's founder and director, Janice Smith, after a valiant 3-year battle with cancer.
Under her leadership, Skate Great became one of U.S. Figure Skating's largest Basic Skills programs in the country. During her 30-year coaching career in WNY she coached 30 skaters to their USFS gold medals and coached numerous skaters at the regional, state, sectional, and national levels.
Jan will be forever remembered for her devotion to the sport of of figure skating and her positive, lasting influence on the skaters she coached.
