(formerly Learn to Skate)

The Pre-CanSkate program is an un-parented program designed for children 4 to 5 years of age, who have never skated before or who are not yet confident on the ice. This program teaches children the basics of how to get up when they fall down, how to move forward, basic backward movement and how to stop. Lessons are taught by Skate Canada Certified Professional Coaches and trained Program Assistants in a group format so children must be somewhat independent and not require one-on-one supervision. These sessions are shorter in length to accommodate the younger skater. Skaters will learn in an energetic, fun environment using skating aids and toys with the goal of having fun.

There are 8 basic skills for the skaters in this program:

  1. Fall down and get up
  2. Balance on 2 feet
  3. Move forward
  4. Make snow
  5. Move backward
  6. 2-foot twist
  7. 360° march
  8. 2-foot jump

What do you need to participate?

All you need are skates, a CSA-approved hockey helmet (preferably with a cage), long pants, mittens, warm sweater or jacket. Dress in layers – it may get warm!

We DO NOT recommend the "adjustable or expandable" skates like those pictured below:
