CanSkate is the official Skate Canada learn to skate program, preparing skaters of all ages for figure skating, hockey, speed skating, and ringette. Each block will offer all levels of CanSkate training, from first-timers to those ready to graduate to other programs. Skaters who commit to more blocks will see the quickest improvement in skating skills.
NEW FOR THE 2023-24 season We are offering two groups of CanSkate.
- Pre-Canskate for new skaters aged 3-5 years. This program will focus on fun, and making skaters comfortable on the ice. Lots of games and activities and a low coach to skater ratio.
- CanSkate for skaters aged 5+ or who have completed Stage 1 in the CanSkate program. This program will introduce more advanced skills, and prepare skaters for other ice sports in the future.
Coaches and program assistants will organize the skaters into groups based on skill levels and age. As skaters progress, they may be moved into different groups. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
