Why Mariposa School of Skating?
Pathway of Excellence
Something For All Ages and Levels
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. We were the first municipal rink in Ontario to put ice back in to re-start our skating programs on June 15th during COVID-19 and have partnered with the City of Barrie and SMDHU to ensure the safety of our skaters and coaches.
Our Internationally renowned school is THE destination for skaters looking to improve their skating!
Through our Performance Galas with the Barrie Huronia Rotary Club, our golf
tournament, Innisdale Secondary School Christmas shows and more. We have collected $1million for RVH, over $180,000 for the Alzheimer Society, $100,000 for the building of the Barrie Molson Centre and more.

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.
