The Pre-CanSkate program is an unparented 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. If your child is able to focus for 30 minutes in a group setting under the direction of the coach, then he/she could give it a try at 3 years old at the start of the program.

Skaters should be able to participate without a parent on the ice.

What do you need to participate?

How to dress for the cold ice:

  • waterproof long pants,
  • waterproof mittens (NO hockey gloves),
  • warm jacket.
  • No elbow pads, no kneepads, no hockey gear. 

Equipment you will need:

Please read Skate Canada's helmet use policy. 


Please note that some ice times may be canceled and/or changed to accommodate the number of skaters registered.  Make-Ups for Missed Classes: Skaters sign up for a specific session and cannot be accommodated on another session if they must miss a day for any reason unless prearranged with a coach.
