Canskate is a dynamic learn to skate program that focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. This program focuses on the development of three fundamental movements (balance, agility and control) organized into six stages of learning that pertain to hockey, ringette, speed skating and figure skating. This program is for beginners of all ages, children or adults looking to take part in any ice sport or to skate as a recreational activity. Lessons are given in a group format with a coach to skater ratio of a maximum of 1:10. Skaters progress at their own rate with badges being awarded once the skills on each stage are mastered. CSA approved hockey helmets are mandatory for skaters in stages 1 – 5. Private or semiprivate lessons can also be arranged with one of our certified professional coaches at your discretion.
