All of our club programs follow the guidelines and standards set forth by Skate Canada, our governing body.
Our PARENT AND TOT program is designed for ages 3-5 and teaches basic skating skills through fun and play in a group setting. CSA approved hockey helmets are mandatory and a chin guard or facemask is strongly recommended. One parent is required on the ice with their child. Skates, helmets, and basic skating ability are the requirements for the parent who will be accompanying their child, as there will be no "hands on" help from the coaches due to COVID restrictions.
CANSKATE is a basic Learn-To-Skate program for beginners that will teach fundamental movements and basic skills in a group setting with the use of circuits. Skaters must be able to skate on their own and follow direction. This program prepares kids for any ice sport whether it is hockey, ringette, speed skating, figure skating, or just pleasure skating for fitness and fun. Skaters advance through 6 CANSKATE badge levels by achieving ribbons for Balance, Control and Agility at each level. CSA approved hockey helmets are mandatory and a chin guard or facemask is strongly recommended.
Our JUNIOR/SENIOR STARSKATE program is a concentrated Figure Skating Program with individual practice and private/semi private instruction in Free Skate, Ice Dance, Skating Skills, and the option of Artistic. Skaters progress through the Skate Canada tests with the ultimate goal of achieving their Gold Test levels and have the opportunity, if they wish, to attend various competitions throughout the season.
