CanSkate Programs

CanSkate is Skate Canada’s learn-to-skate program, designed for beginners of all ages. When you sign up for CanSkate, you will be in a program that focuses on fun, participation, and basic skill development. You will earn badges and other incentives as you learn fundamental skating skills. Lessons are given in a group format and led by an NCCP certified professional coach. Professional coaches are assisted by trained Program Assistants or PAs. The coach to student ratio is a maximum of 1:10.

Skaters progress at their own rate and coaches make sessions active using teaching aids, music, and a wide variety of activities that create a fun environment and promote learning. 

 

CanSkate is the feeder program to all other Skate Canada Skating Programs. The CanSkate program curriculum is organized into three Fundamental Areas, divided into six stages of learning. 
   
The Fundamental Areas are: 
                 • Balance: concentrating on most forward skills, pushing technique, and edges. 
                 • Control: concentrating on most backwards skills, stopping, and speed elements. 
                 • Agility: concentrating on most turning, and jumping skills. 
         
 The Awards Consist of:
          Three Fundamental Area ribbons for each stage 
          Six stage badges: to receive a stage badge, skaters must achieve all Fundamental Area ribbons (Balance, Control and Agility) for all 6 stages
