The Pre-CanSkate program is an un-parented program designed for children 3 to 5 years of age, who have never skated before or who are not yet confident on the ice.
Approved "CSA Hockey Helmets" is mandatory, and children will not be permitted on the ice without one. Bicycle helmets, ski helmets, or any other helmet other than an approved "CSA Hockey Hemet" will not be acceptable
This program teaches children the basics of how to get up and fall properly, how to move forward and backward, basic balance movements, and how to stop
Lessons are taught by Skate Canada Certified Professional Coaches and Trained Program Assistants in a group format
These sessions are shorter in length (30 minutes) to accommodate the younger skater
Skaters will learn in an energetic, fun environment using skating aids and toys with the goal of having fun
Children must be toilet trained
Once a participant has gained confidence and shown skill in gliding on each foot, stopping, and getting up from a down position they can move on to the CanSkate program
Skaters are to be dressed warmly for classes including waterproof mitts or gloves. Snow Pants are also recommended
