This is a beginner level program for boys & girls starting at age 3 years. Skaters strive to achieve the Skate Canada badge levels 1 to 6. This 45-minute program combines a 15-minute warm-up and two 15-minute group lessons with a professional coach and help from our P.A.'s (program assistants). The CanSkate coaches evaluate their skaters on a day-to-day basis, and upon completion of the session will provide a report card outlining their progress.
This program is for skaters who have achieved badge level 5 or higher and want to move on to learn how to figure skate. Classes are 60 minutes in length and skaters will receive 15 minutes of stroking and two 15 minute group lessons per session, and the remaining 15 minutes is for free-skate to practice what they have just learned. Please note: the Saturday class is a 55 minute lesson, the stroking portion is 10 minutes.
