"I have been bringing skaters to the Mariposa Seminar for 18 years. Every year is a fabulous experience for both my skaters as well as myself. It never ceases to amaze me how professional everyone is and how willing this team of coaches is to share information to both the skaters as well as the coaches at the seminar. It is a great networking experience for me and I have met wonderful coaches that I am proud to call my friends from all over United States and Canada. I would highly recommend The Seminar to any coach to bring their skaters and be part of next year's seminar!"

− Charleen Cameron, St. Margaret's Bay Skating Club

"Kudos to Mariposa .. While you continue to provide 'standard of excellence,' your seminar encompassed a healthy and positive atmosphere. You may call me a 'den mother', but as such I was required to be in attendance at the rink every day, all day, with a watchful eye on different levels of skaters. No matter the age, the home club location,. it was all so heart warming to watch figure skaters on the ice working so hard, but then back in the dressing rooms it was evident the skaters had formed friendships and families left sharing contact information to keep in touch with one another.
