CanSkate is Skate Canada’s flagship learn-to-skate program for beginners of any age that teaches fundamental movements and basic skills.
PreCanSkate – Ages 3-4 with little or no skating experience. PreCanSkate teaches skaters how to get up after falling, and how to get moving around the ice. We play games and have lots of fun on this session. (PreCanSkate is offered during regular winter season only)
Parents can choose to be part of PreCanSkate or enjoy watching from the bleachers. Just remember that all parents must also wear a CSA approved hockey helmet on the ice.
CanSkate – Ages 5 & up with little to no skating experience. (offered during Winter, Spring & Summer)
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.
