PreCanSkate (Ages 3-5) is back!

 

PreCanSkate is for skaters 3-5 years of age.  This 30-minute program focuses on learning through FUN!  High energy music, actions, songs and toys create an inviting learning environment for any preschooler learning to skate. As skaters progress, they will be transitioned into the CanSkate program when ready.

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.  This is an un-parented program.  However, parents or guardians are requested to watch from the off-ice area in the instance that off-ice assistance is required (ie with the bathroom or skating gear).

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.

 

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.
