Learn to Skate
This program is the entry level for beginners who are 3 to 5 years of age with little or no skating history. Children are placed into groups according to ability and taught by a Professional Coach and assisted by Program Assistants. The focus of this program is to make skating fun! Skating skills taught, range from learning to stand and balance to going forwards and backwards. The Pre-CanSkate program is a readiness vehicle to prepare skaters for CanSkate. Once the skaters have passed the set criteria and mastered the essentials needed to move safely and effectively on the ice they can be moved into a CanSkate program.
