     You must be able to skate to qualify for this program (fall down and get up on your own, skate without needing anyone's help)     

CanSkate is the Skate Canada flagship learn to skate program.  Skaters must be able to skate independently to qualify for this program.  CanSkate focuses on fun, participation, and basic skill development. All classes are taught in a group format and are led by an NCCP certified professional coach. Skaters progress at their own rate in a progressive, and sequential badge program. CanSkate is an excellent starting point for children interested in pursuing figure skating, hockey, ringette, speed skating, or just an interest in acquiring basic skating skills. 

COVID-19 Protocols and Procedures

  • please come with your skates on (skate guards required)
  • masks must be worn into the arena and put back on immediately after the skater gets off the ice
  • skaters do not have to wear masks while on the ice
