CanSkate is a dynamic learn-to-skate program that focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. Based on Sport Canada?s long term athlete development (LTAD) principles, CanSkate centers on physical literacy and the fundamental skills needed to take part in any ice sport or to skate as a recreational activity.
A complete series of balance, control and agility skills taught in six stages of learning that pertain to Hockey, Ringette, Speed Skating and Figure Skating as well as general recreational skating. CanSkate uses nationally-tested and proven curriculum and delivery methods that guarantee skater success in developing stronger basic skills and developing them faster.
It is MANDATORY to wear a Helmet on the CanSkate ice time for stages 1 - 5.
Private and semi-private lessons can be arranged additionally between the skater, parent and coach of your choice. Please see our CanSkate Liaison or the CanSkate Administrator for details.
