PreSkate is the introductory level of CanSkate, the Skate Canada flagship learn-to-skate program. It is designed for 4 year olds (or those who will be 4 by Dec 31st) just beginning skating. Instruction is on a group basis, with professional coaches on the ice. The sessions mix fun and play, and are 30 minutes long. Helmets are mandatory.
PreSkate is held over twenty weeks starting in October in two 10 week sessions, before and after Christmas. Skaters who progress well may switch to CanSkate at any time on the recommendation of the professional coach.
Full details are available under Registration. For more information contact the Club Administrator at 579-1923.
Note: Due to liability issues and Skate Canada regulations, unregistered parents will not be permitted on the ice with the child. However, if a parent would feel more comfortable joining their child – they can be registered with Skate Canada and our club as a Program Assistant for a one time per season charge of $35.65. Insurance is not transferable between parents/guardian/grandparents, therefore, if a different person will be accompanying the skater on the ice – each individual will require the insurance.
