Pre-CanSkate is the starting point where skaters advance to the CanSkate program. Basic skills such as skating forward, backwards, turning, jumping and stopping will be taught in a group of a maximum of 5 skaters per group. A professional coach for each group will be on the ice during the entire session. Skaters will be grouped according to age and ability. Age appropriate toys, other props and visual aids may be used during the lessons. Circuits and trails will be drawn on the ice for skaters to learn and practice their skills.
Assessment will be an ongoing basis rather than having a set assessment day, allowing skaters progress at their own speed. Skaters who master their Pre-CanSkate skills will advance to the CanSkate program.
The CanSkate program is geared to beginners of all ages…children, newcomers to Canada and athletes with a disability (AWAD). Whether you are looking to improve basic skating skills for figure skating, hockey, ringette or speed skating, or wish to skate for recreation, fitness or fun, CanSkate will get you there.
Conducted in a fun, friendly environment, the CanSkate program showcases a comprehensive series of balance, control and agility skills, using a nationally-tested and proven curriculum that supports skater success in developing stronger basic skills on the ice.
Millions of Canadians, including World and Olympic figure skating champions and National Hockey League stars, have taken their first steps on the ice with the CanSkate program. Offered at clubs and skating schools across Canada and delivered by NCCP coaches, CanSkate will help you realize your skating goals.
