Pre-CanSkate and CanSkate

This program, coached by NCCP-trained professional coaches and assisted by trained program assistants, is for beginners of all ages who wish to improve their basic skating skills. This program gives your skater confidence on the ice, whether their focus is hockey, ringette, figure skating, speed skating, or just having fun!

Pre-CanSkate is delivered weekly in 30-minute group lessons. CanSkate lessons are delivered through 1-hour sessions in a group format weekly. Skaters progress through a series of balance, control, and agility skills taught in six stages.

What do you need to participate?

A CSA-approved hockey helmet, mittens, and layers are all you need! Skating attire will change as your skater progresses. The CanSkate program recommends long pants, snow pants, and jackets; mittens and a CSA-approved helmet with a faceguard are required. Skaters pursuing hockey, ringette, and speed skating are encouraged to wear hockey skates throughout the Pre-Canskate and Canskate programs. Skaters looking to pursue figure skating are encouraged to wear well-supported figure skates. Any questions about skates or sharpenings can be directed to coaches or executive members.
