Fliteway is a non-for-profit organization dedicated to providing skating opportunities to children of all ages, levels and abilities.   Located in North Edmonton, Fliteway offers a wide range of programming and services to meet all your skating needs.    

Pre-CanSkate (Ages 3 to 5 or first time skaters ages 6 to 9)

Pre-CanSkate is a learn to skate program for ages 3 to 5. Pre-CanSkate is designed to give skaters a positive first experience on the ice.  Skaters learn through creative activities and teaching methods which are age appropriate.  This program will focus on positive reinforcement, basic skating skills, and will prepare children for Fliteway’s Skating Club CanSkate Program.   All sessions (classes) include a 15 minute off-ice warm-up, and 30 minute on-ice instruction.   Skaters will be placed in small groups according to age and skating level.  Pre-CanSkate is also for children ages 6 to 8 who have never been on skates or ice before.  

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.
