In her spare time, Danielle enjoys spending time with her family, including her son, Preston, baking, scrapbooking, and traveling.

Coach Lori is a lifelong resident of PA who commutes from Bethlehem. She spent her youth skating all over the Philadelphia area as a singles skater and in a dance pair. She graduated from West Chester University. After a 17 year break from skating she returned to be a full time coach and has been doing so for the last 15 years. Her skills cover Freestyle, Moves, Beginner Dance, Hockey, and now she’s excited to add Synchro to her list!

Coach Tori started skating when she was 18 months old! Following in her mothers footsteps she became a coach, too! She passed her USFS Gold moves in the field and Freestyle tests, competed as a Senior lady, graduated from high school and left to tour with Disney On Ice for three years. She performed all over the US, Australia, Mexico, Canada and Europe in Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo and The Hundred Years of Disney Magic! She was privileged to work with skaters from all over the globe as well as many well known Choreographers. After returning from the show Victoria earned a degree in Dance where she learned many different styles of dance. She uses these each day on the ice! Tori is married to Rob Lyons and has a beautiful daughter Noelle! She loves wearing all of her "hats!"

Aggie Richhart was born and raised right here in PA. The first skates on her feet at the age of 6 were roller skates. She is 1 of 5 children and her whole family competed in roller skating including mom and dad. When Aggie was 11, her family hung up their roller skates and she decided to switch to ice skating along with her younger brother. Her brother later switched to hockey and Aggie trained for 1 year at the small hometown rink. She then moved to Wilmington Delaware to train for a career in figure skating. Within 4 years Aggie achieved a gold medal in figures and free style, passed 2 pre-gold dances and later passed her Bronze pair test. She competed at the senior level for 3 years. At the age of 19 she began teaching and loved every minute of it. Soon after, got married and raised 3 boys. Of course none of them would figure skate. She had 2 hockey players and a soccer player. Her hockey players encouraged her to also teach power skating. In 2008, Aggie was asked to assist with coaching a synchronized skating team. She said, sure! Well, sure enough she fell in love with yet another discipline of skating. The following year coached a team of her own and has been coaching synchronized skating ever since. When not on the ice, Aggie loves spending time with her family, driving her waverunner, water skiing and relaxing at the family camper in the Pocono mountains.

The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.
