If your child is between the ages of 3-5 and is new to skating, this is the program for them! Our PreCanSkate program is designed to teach the most basic skating skills through games and songs that will get your child up and moving in no time. Skaters will work with a devoted coach and volunteers to learn how to stand, move forward, backward, jump and turn. These basics build strength, focus on balance and are the key skills needed to get moving.

Focused on the fundamental skating skills needed for hockey, figure skating, ringette or speed skating, your child will work through skills on edges, balance, stopping, speed, turns and much more. Each skill is taught through progressions and circuits, making repetition the key to strong, controlled skills over time. The CanSkate program consists of 6 stages which take time to progress through, but don't worry, your child will have tons of fun and always go home happy, and tired!

StarSkate

(Must have Passed Stage 6 CanSkate)

Register Now >

Focused on the Figure Skating stream Starskate develops Figure skating specific skills such as dances, figures, jumps, spins and movement as well as edges, stroking, balance and more. Star 1-5 is built through progressions so skaters are able to learn skills, and must be evaluated on them before they can progress to a more challenging version. This helps to ensure every skill meets a minimum level of quality before it becomes too challenging to correct. To make the most out of your skaters development at this level, we recommend adding a 15 minute private lesson with a coach during free practise time.

Off-Ice Training

Recommended for all skaters in the Junior Starskate and Star 1-5 programs.

Building strength gives our skaters confidence and determination, and is a great way to avoid injuries on and off the ice. Skaters require athletic clothing and running shoes to participate.
