CanSkate - LEARN TO SKATE program
CanSkate is Skate Canada's learn-to-skate program for beginners from age 4 to 12. It teaches fundamental movements (forward skating, backward skating, stop, turn, spin and jump) as well as many other basic skills. Skaters are grouped by age and skill, beginning in Stage 1 and progressing through Stage 7. The CanSkate program emphasizes fun and continuous movement and is taught in a group lesson format by professional Skate Canada coaches and assisted by trained Program Assistants. Badges and awards are used to motivate skaters to achieve and develop their skills as well as to keep interest high. CSA approved helmets are mandatory until the skater has passed Stage 5. Skaters must have their own skates (figure skates or hockey skates).
Summer 2017 registration will open in June 2017.
