CanSkate for teenagers
The majority of skaters in our main CanSkate learn to Skate sessions are younger skaters- 11 and under. Older skaters often feel out of place in these sessions so we are offering a CanSkate programme specifically for the 11-17 age range (older skaters are eligible for our adult programme). This session operates in the Goulds arena on Thursday nights, 7:15- 8:20 p.m.
CanSkate is the Skate Canada flagship learn-to-skate program. It is geared to participants aged five and up, but can be adapted for any age. The CanSkate programme teaches fundamental skating skills like skating forwards, backwards, how to stop, turn, spin and jump. The skills are taught and emphasized through fun activities and continuous movement in small groups. Skills are assessed frequently, and there are many incentives available to reward participation. Badges are also awarded at each level. CanSkate graduates can progress on to other Skate Canada programs.
Instruction is on a group basis. Helmets are mandatory.
