Cody Figure Skating Club has been so very blessed to have the Jewell family coach at the helm of the club for longer than most club members can even remember and although Kathie has retired from regular coaching in Cody, and the CFSC program now looks a little different, we have a schedule of fabulous visiting coaches (including the Jewells) coming to teach skating skills each week.
Coach Avery Bandel is joining us from Casper, Amy Malachowski is coming from Bozeman to teach all disciplines of figure skating, Kyla Jewel and Alex McCready still travel to our club to help our skaters with their long years of experience. and and how lucky are we that Coaches Macey and Tashi, both PSA qualified and USFSA registered coaches, are based right here in Cody and ready to coach our skaters, and offer private lessons through the week!

Visiting Coach: Kathy Jewell
Kathy is originally from Buffalo, New York but and currently resides in Montana where she was the cornerstone of the Figure Skating Club of Billings and developed the skating program in Cody, Wyoming.
Kathie is a US Figure Skating & PSA Registered Coach, CER certified, IJS Technical Specialist (non-qualifying).
She has thirty years experience taking skaters through their golds, and has taught regional, sectional and junior national competitors in freestyle, dance, and pairs.
Kathie’s emphasis is on freestyle and moves in the field. She enjoys teaching skaters of all levels with a variety of goals – be it recreational or competitive.
Visiting Coach: Kyla Jewell
Kyla Jewell hails from Billings, MT and started skating at the tiny age of just two.
She currently attends Montana State University in Bozeman, MT where she studies Mechanical Engineering, but having begun competing at such a young age, figure skating is her passion.
Kyla thoroughly enjoys competing, and coaching, and as a Gold Medalist in Moves in The Field at just 11 years old and Gold Freestyle at 16, its unsurprising that she travelled Europe fulfilling her dream of joining a professional figure skating show!
Kyla is a PSA Registered Coach, CER certified, and a USFSA registered coach.
Amy Malachowski has been coaching competitive and recreational skaters for ten years. She is a member of the Professional Skaters Association (PSA), US Finger Skating Association and the Bozeman Figure Skating Club. A Regional and Sectional competitor herself, she has coached many skaters to achieve Senior Level Tests and High Level Competitive Goals. Amy specializes in Free Skating, Moves in the Field, Figures, Us Figure Skating Basic Skills, Off Ice Jumps and Power Skating for both Hockey Players and Figure Skaters. She coaches all levels from recreational, testing and competitive skaters and is an accomplished coach with all ages from small children to adult students. Private Lessons or group lessons available.
Tashi was a late starter to skating at the grand old age of 9, but sure has made up lost time, and is a registered USFSA coach, also CER certified by the PSA as a skating coach, qualified in everything from safety, and test protocols, coaching ethics and child development in skaters, to stress and sport performance and designing practice routines/sessions.
She's currently taking a gap year to compile a film portfolio before taking her place in either film or broadcast journalism school. Her gap year also gives her time to skate in Sun Valley, ID where she is devotee of the beautiful outdoor ice.
Tash has her Novice MIF and Pre-Juv Freestyle tests, and has also competed successfully across the tri-states at many skating competitions, and at the State Games of America in Grand Rapids, MI.
