Signe Ronka (born April 23, 1988 in Riga, Latvia, moved to Toronto at age 3) is a Canadian figure skater. She trained at the Granite club in Toronto with coaches Ellen Burka and Marcus Christensen. Signe is the 2002 Canadian Junior bronze medalist. She has won several medals on the Junior Grand Prix circuit as well as a gold medal at the 2002 Triglav Trophy in Jesenice, Slovenia. Signe qualified for the Junior Grand Prix Finals in 2002 as well as made the Junior World Team and Junior National Team.
Ronka retired from competitive skating in 2006 where she ended her career with a 10th place finish at the Canadian Championships in senior ladies. Once retired from competitive, she went on to skate for the University of Toronto Varsity team where she placed 1st at the 2007 and 2008 OUA Finals. In 2008, Signe received the Competitive Athlete of the Year award from the University of Toronto.
Signe was selected to skate at the Canada's Wonderland "Endless Summer" ice show, where she skated for two seasons (2007–2008).
Currently, Signe is a coach/choreographer at East York skating club as well as the Granite Club in Toronto, Canada.
Signe has developed a unique off-ice program for figure skaters - "Figure Skater Bootcamp" - that entails cardio, agility and strength training, while incorporating off – ice jumping.
DVD "Reach New Heights" developed by Signe has been released to enhance performance on the ice by training efficiently and effectively off the ice. Includes a variety of sequenced exercises (warm up, sit spin, flying sit spin, flying camel, jumps, and strength and conditioning exercises) in order for skaters to train specific muscle groups for the skills performed on the ice.
