CanSkaters

The skills taught in these programs are beneficial to all children regardless of which ice sport they prefer: figure skating, hockey, ringette, speed skating or recreational skating.

Our PreCanSkate program (formerly KidSkate) is designed for children ages 3 to 5 and is offered weeknights and weekends for 30 minutes once per week. The goal of this program is to help skaters develop balance and coordination with an emphasis on having fun through the use of music, games and toys.

Our CanSkate program is designed for children who are at least 5 years of age. Each session runs for 60 minutes and is offered weeknights and weekends with the option of 1 or 2 sessions per week. Children are separated into colour-coded groups based on their age and ability while progressing through six levels of skating skills at their own pace.


CSA-approved hockey helmets are mandatory.

Snow or splash pants and waterproof mitts are recommended. 

Parents MUST stay in the arena while their child is on the ice.
