Pre-CanSkatePre-CanSkate is geared to our youngest skaters starting at the age of 3 years old in the year of registration. This is also set at only a 30 minute session so not to overwhelm our new skaters.
In this group the skaters learn the very basics of skating such as moving forward and backwards. They also learn how fall down and get back up. There are many skills that they will learn before progressing to our CanSkate session where they will continue building on these skills while learning new skating skills.
Once the skater has mastered their
Pre-CanSkate skills they are then moved up to the CanSkate groups.
In this program the skater builds upon the the basic skating skill they have learned. The skaters start to build up their agility, balance and control while skating. This is necessary for those who wish to go on further in figure skating, hockey or ringette.
They will earn ribbons and badges once they have mastered a skill. These skills start at level 1 and go up to level 6.
