Coach Nat

Coach Nat co-founded the iconic DC-ICE Speedskating Club in the Summer of 2002 with several parents living near Fort Dupont Ice Arena in Washington, DC, along with FDIA's innovative Learn To Speedskate program, which introduced future Olympian Maame Biney to the sport.

Coach Nat's first job was coaching the historic Evanston Speedskating Club outside Chicago, which included future Olympic Champion Shani Davis.

Almost two decades later, Coach Nat continues to share the joy of skating and philosophy of Olympism with hundreds of youth each year.
