PreCanSkate & CanSkate / Learn to Skate
Pre-CanSkate is for skaters between the ages of 3 and 5 years who are BRAND NEW to the world of skating, skaters who aren’t confident, participants with special needs, or skaters who need a quieter/less energetic setting in which to learn. We will have a 1 coach: 5 skaters ratio. Pre-CanSkate will be play based with a big focus on FUN. Participants will enjoy games, toys, creative circuits and much more.
Participants in this program will learn to stand! Yahoo! Once that is out of the way, they will learn how to move forward, backward, sideways, make snow, turn, jump and glide. This program is geared to help skaters build basics so that they can move into our CanSkate program.
CanSkate got a makeover! Exciting new features include a fresh new look, new awards, great tools for coaches and most importantly a tested and proved new curriculum and delivery methods that guarantee skater success in developing stronger basic skills and developing them faster. But there's more! The new program also includes specific skills that pertain to hockey, ringette, speed skating and figure skating. The result is a dynamic new program that prepares all skaters for virtually every ice sport.
