Come Skate With Us!
CanSkate is a dynamic learn-to-skate program that focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. Based on Sport Canada’s long term athlete development (LTAD) principles, CanSkate centers on physical literacy and the fundamental skills needed to take part in any ice sport or to skate as a recreational activity.
The Pre‐Star program is available to those who have a desire to transition into the STAR Program as recommended by their coach. The fundamentals learned from CanSkate and Enriched are expanded on through group lessons with the opportunity for private lessons.
Skaters recommended into this program by their coach demonstrate natural skating abilities and are expected to progress quickly through the CanSkate program. The enrichment program offers the opportunity for skaters to be grouped with other identified young figure skaters in an accelerated learning environment.
STARSkate offers opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating. Unique in Canada, this program teaches figure skating skills in a group and/or private lesson format in a progressive and sequential manner and includes specifically designed awards and incentives.
