Preschool CanSkate & CanSkate
(CSA Helmets and masks are required for all skaters age 3-5 yrs)
(CSA Helmets are required for all skaters age 6 + yrs)
Preschool CanSkate is Skate Canada's flagship learn-to-skate program that is geared to beginners between the ages of 3-5 years, and must be potty trained. This program emphasizes positive learning through fun and play.
The CanSkate Program focuses on fun, fitness, and participation. The program stresses progressive learning through fundamental movements explored in 6 stages focusing on Balance, Control and Agility. As the skaters progress through each of the stages they may be awarded ribbons, once a complete stage is successfully achieved a badge will be awarded.
Both programs are taught in a group lesson format by Professional Club Coaches helped by trained volunteer Program Assistants. Our Coaches and Program Assistants work as a team to ensure that skaters have fun and achieve success on the ice. Continual assessment will be done by our Professional Coaches throughout the season.
Awards and incentives are used to motivate skaters to achieve and develop their skills as well as to keep interest high. Progress Report Cards will be used to update you on your child's continuing progress; mid-year and at the end of the season.
