About Mariposa School of Skating

The Mariposa School of Skating is a full service training centre. We welcome skaters of all ages and skating disciplines from our local area or around the world to train with us for any length of time.
We have a coaching team and a variety of diversity skating programs we excel at delivering, from elite competitive figure skating programs to learn to skate to hockey skating programs to our RVH Therapy on Ice.  Skating champions like Brian Orser, Elvis Stojko and Jennifer Robinson put Mariposa on the map as an internationally renowned school. Mariposa is a full-service training centre that offers top level instruction for every age and level of skater.

Why is this school important to us

Our adventure with Mariposa School of Skating started in 1998, when our family moved to Barrie
Our then little boy, wanted to try skating, and we wanted to keep him and his brother busy during cold winter months.  We reached out to the local skating club, that is still operating from the same facility.
Our older son Peter Gerber, two times Polish Ice Dance National Champion, started training there when he was 7 years old. He continued to do so for the next 14 years; with reminder of his skating career spent training in Novi, Michigan.  Years later, together with his wife Mariyah, they have launched a comfortable loungewear and athleisure clothing line, called The Match Me Boutique

Over the years, we have hosted many skaters from all over the world.  We had visitors from Europe and Australia; till this day, we welcome young skaters and their families from Mexico.  

The house is located 700 meters (765 yards) from Mariposa School of Skating.
