This program is for participants who have never skated before or who are not confident with their balance on the ice. We usually take skaters at the age of 4/5. They should be able to stand up on their own on regular skates without help.
Parents do not go on the ice with their child(ren). The Pre-CanSkater's work on the essentials to move safely and effectively on the ice and will rotate through the learning stations.
It is MANDATORY to wear a Helmet on the Pre-CanSkate ice time.
For more information on the Pre-CanSkate Program, please see the Skate Canada website at http://www.skatecanada.ca/
All skaters (up to two per family) can pay a $60.00 non-refundable fundraising fee
