Winning legacy and bright future
Founded in Orillia, Ontario in 1973 by Doug Leigh and Tom Harrison, the school moved to Barrie in 1988 to accommodate the needs of world class skaters while establishing a campus at the Allandale Recreation Centre. Home to National Champions, Olympic medallists and World Champions from around the world, the school has seen success in Singles, Ice Dance and Pairs with champions like Brian Orser, Elvis Stojko, Jeff Buttle, Jennifer Robinson, Jacinthe Lariviere & Lenny Faustino.
David Islam and Paul Matheson became the co-owners in June 2017 to continue the strong legacy that has been built at the Mariposa School of Skating.
