This program teaches children the basics of how to get up when they fall down, how to move forward, basic backward movement and how to stop. Lessons are taught by Skate Canada Certified Professional Coaches and trained Program Assistants in a group format so children must be somewhat independent and not require one-on-one supervision. Skaters will learn in an energetic, fun environment using skating aids and toys with the goal of having fun.

Equipment Required: CSA approved helmet, Skates, warm clothing in layers.

*If a parent wishes to be out on the ice surface with their PreCanSkate child, this can be accommodated; please speak with a coach or member of the Nanton Skating Club Board for next steps. You can email the board here.

CanSkate

Description: CanSkate is a dynamic learn-to-skate program that focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. Based on Sport Canada’s long-term athlete development (LTAD) principles, CanSkate centers on physical literacy and the fundamental skills needed to take part in any ice sport or to skate as a recreational activity.

CanSkate is for beginners of all ages, as well as for those wishing to improve their basic skills whether their focus is for figure skating, hockey, speed skating or just skating for fun. CanSkate is taught by NCCP-trained professional coaches, assisted by trained program assistants.

CanSkate is action, movement, and fun!

Lessons are given in a group format with a coach-to-student ratio of a maximum 1:10. Skaters progress at their own rate and coaches make sessions active using teaching aids, upbeat music and a wide variety of activities that create a motivational environment and promote learning. Badges, ribbons and other incentives are used to benchmark skaters’ progress and reward effort and participation.

Equipment Required: CSA approved helmet, Skates, warm clothing in layers.
