CanSkate (Ages 4 and up)

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:  All classes have been cancelled until early January.  Registration for January will begin Mid. December.
