Learn to Skate

CanSkate is a dynamic learn-to-skate program that focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. CanSkate is for beginners of all ages, children or adults, as well as for those wishing to improve their basic skills whether their focus be for figure skating, hockey, or just skating for fun. Our instructors are NCCP-trained professional coaches, assisted by trained program assistants.

Lessons provide a complete series of balance, control and agility skills taught in six stages of learning that pertain to hockey and figure skating as well as 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.

All you need are skates, a CSA-approved helmet, long pants, mittens, warm sweater or jacket. Dress in layers – it will get warm!
