How much should a private kids sports coach charge?

Since the question of how much a childs sports coach should charge came in to skatersdad, I assume we should give an answer related to what figure skating coaches charge. The answer, like so many things, is that it varies and it varies quite a lot. At our club, coaches run about a dollar per minute. Some are more, some are less. Some are a lot more.

Usually a skater only spends part of their time on the ice with their coach and the rest of the time they work on their own, which helps to keep the cost down.
