Morgan Privett

My name is Morgan Privett and this will be my second year coaching in Yankton. I graduated in 2013 from Yankton High School. I am currently a second year student at USD working on a business major. I have been skating for about 5-6 years in the Yankton program. I am a Freestyle 5 level skater. I competed for three years. In high school I was a student coach my senior year, helping with all levels. Last year I was a coach for the second semester of the Yankton Program. My favorite levels to coach are freestyle 1 and above. As a coach, I want to encourage my skaters to put forth there best efforts, while having fun and enjoying the wonderful sport. This year I plan to become a private coach for my first year. I am overjoyed to start a season with many opportunities to offer all the skaters. I provide private lessons for skaters who are interested in private lessons and/or competing at competitions.
