NEW for 2020/2021!

Parent + Tot PreCanSkate (Ages 3-5)

 

A program developed to allow a family member* to assist in their young skaters development. This program allows the skaters to receive hands-on assistance from a family member who they know, trust and is in their cohort.  

This 30 minute Parented program focuses on learning through FUN! High energy music, actions songs and toys create an inviting learning environment for any preschooler learning to skate.

Adults and skaters will participate in small group lessons led by an NCCP certified professional coach. Upon mastering the skills in this program, skaters will move into our CanSkate program.  

Both the skater and the family member must be registered with Skate Canada ($45 per person). As such, the same family member is required to attend each class. “Parent” may include members of the skater’s household or members of their social circle that can be responsible for the skater. When registering for this class, please be sure to add the TOT class ($165) and the corresponding PARENT class ($0) to your cart.

Note:  Parents/adults must be 18 years of age and have basic skating skills (balance on 2 feet, move forwards and stop). CSA approved helmets are required for both parent/adult and skater. 

Note: Skaters must wear lace up skates and a CSA approved helmet. Bike helmets are not allowed and buckle type skates are not recommended for this program.

 

CanSkate (Ages 4+) - Canada's Flagship Learn to Skate Program

 

CanSkate uses a badge and ribbon award system to help reward skaters for achieving different skills in three areas:Balance, Control and Agility. LFSC CanSkate Sessions ensure each skater receives instruction in each of the skill areas each and every skating day. Lesson time is maximized to provide the most instruction possible.

CanSkaters start with basic skills and progress to more advanced skills as the session goes on. These skills will allow skaters to enjoy skating as a life- long activity.  It is beneficial to have these basic skills before moving onward to figure skating and or hockey. 

Skaters need to be able to move forward on the ice independently.

COVID-19 UPDATE: All participants must be able to fall down, stand up, and move forward on ice unassisted. Coaches will not be permitted to give hands on assistance due to social distancing regulations. 

Note: Skaters must wear lace up skates and a CSA approved helmet. Bike helmets are not allowed and buckle type skates are not recommended for this program.
