CanSkate

CanSkate is a dynamic learn-to-skate program that focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. Based on Sport Canada’s long-term athlete development (LTAD) principles, CanSkate centers on physical literacy and the fundamental skills needed to participate in any ice sport or skate as a recreational activity.


Who teaches it?

NCCP-trained professional coaches, assisted by trained program assistants (PA).
 

What will you learn?

A complete series of balance, control, and agility skills are taught in six stages of learning that pertain to hockey, ringette, speed skating, figure skating, and general recreational skating. CanSkate uses nationally-tested and proven curriculum and delivery methods that guarantee skater success in developing stronger basic skills and developing them faster.
 

What can you expect?

Action, movement, and fun! Lessons are given in a group format with a coach-to-student ratio of a maximum of 1:10. Skaters progress at their own rate, and coaches make sessions active using teaching aids, upbeat music, and various activities that create a motivational environment and promote learning. Badges, ribbons and other incentives are used to benchmark skaters’ progress.

 

How to dress for the ice:

  • long waterproof pants
  • waterproof mittens (NO hockey gloves)
  • warm jacket
  • No elbow pads, knee pads, or hockey gear

Equipment you will need:

  • Lace-up skates (we DO NOT recommend "Adjustable or Expandable" skates)

     

  • A CSA-approved hockey helmet with a cage. Please read Skate Canada's helmet use policy
