CanSkate Learn-to-Skate Program

CanSkate is a dynamic learn-to-skate program for ages 4+ that focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. Based on Sport Canada’s long term athlete development (LTAD) principles, CanSkate centers on physical literacy and the fundamental skills needed to take part in any ice sport or to skate as a recreational activity. Exciting new features of the CanSkate program include a fresh new look, new awards, and most importantly a tested and proven new curriculum and delivery methods that guarantee skater success in developing stronger basic skills and developing them faster. 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.
ALL CANSKATE SKATERS MUST HAVE: Good quality Hockey or Figure Skates,
a CSA approved Hockey, Skating or Skiing Helmet (Bike helmets are not allowed) and Mittens and or gloves.
