Deyette Helminski

Learn to Skate Director, Learn to Skate Private Lessons

I’m Deyette Helminski, the Chippewa Figure Skating Club’s Learn to Skate Director. I was born in Andover, MN and moved to Cadott, WI in 1996. I have a wonderful husband (Matthew) and three handsome boys (Bryan, Justin, and Kyle). I fell in love with Figure Skating at 8 years old when I received my first pair of figure skates for Christmas. From then on, every winter I spent as many hours as possible outdoors at the skating rink or skating on a small pond behind our house. In college, I was introduced to the world of “Adult” Figure Skating, but it was short-lived due to moving to Grand Forks, ND to complete my Bachelor’s Degree. I’m a Medical Technologist and I currently work at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chippewa Falls, WI. I’ve now been skating for 12 years and “yes” I do compete. I served as the LTS Director for the club several years ago, but due to my career path at the time I had to resign. I’m very thankful to have accepted the LTS Director position again because I love seeing the smiles on the faces of children as they learn what seemed impossible is possible.  


Brittany Stelter

Learn to Skate Private Lessons, Junior Club Coach Private Lessons

Hi, my name is Brittany Stelter. I skated at the club for 11 years before moving away for college and traveling for work. Before leaving the club, I passed my Intermediate Moves in the Field and my Juvenile Free Skate. I hope to continue to compete as an adult and advance my skills while helping other skaters achieve their goals as well. I am a licensed Learn to Skate and Junior Club Coach through USFSA with 5 years of coaching experience while I was previously with the club.

I graduated from UW-Platteville with a Civil Engineering degree emphasis in Structural Engineering and spent a few years underwater diving and rope access climbing to inspect bridges all over the USA. Recently I came back to the area and found my true passion in raising cattle and began working for Equity Livestock Sales. I currently have my own herd of beef cattle and adorable calves! I also have a photography business and love capturing precious moments in life and nature.

I hope to help each and every skater reach for their dreams to become the best skater they can be. I have unique ways to look at each and every skill to make them fun while still perfecting the basics. Please feel free to text or call me at (715) 944-9146 or email me at
