Meet Miss Caroline

By June 15, 2009

Follow me on:

Many skaters and skating families in Memphis, Tennessee know Coach Caroline Mirelli as Miss Caroline. She teaches new skaters and old ones to respect and love both quad and inline roller figure skating. Although Caroline Mirelli has developed more inline figure skaters than most roller sports coaches in the United States, she works to promote and recruit for all roller sports, is very active in both inline and quad figure skating and successfully starts and develops new skaters in both disciplines every season.

She has received many Regional and National Awards for her competitive contributions to our sport. But if you steal one of her precious coaching moments and talk to her, you'll find that her most treasured skating rewards are the smiling faces of her well-trained students.

I have looked up to Caroline since I was a little girl. I traveled from Florida to Tennessee just to get coached by the best, and that coach is Caroline. I am now in my 40`s and she is still one of my mentors and close friend. I do reminisce a lot about my skating in Memphis and the fun I had as a child. I miss you Caroline!!!
