Cindy Smith Schrader, daughter of Janis and George, began her coaching career in 1983 after retiring from the competitive ranks. Schrader has been involved with the sport for over forty years and has always coached at the Chester Artistic Skating Club since her coaching career began. She loves teaching beginners just as much as she does those in the higher ranks of the sport.
Cindy skated in all disciplines of roller figure skating and was a champion on the regional and national level on numerous occasions. She experienced the thrill of representing the USA at the World Championships six times winning two gold medals, one silver and one bronze. She also received many other medals in international competitions such as the Pan Am and World Games.
Schrader and her partner, Mark Howard, competed on the world stage in Lisbon, Portugal (1978), Altenau, Germany (1979), Bogota, Colombia (1980), Nelson, New Zealand (1981), Bremerhaven, Germany (1982) and Fort Worth, Texas (1983).
