2020-2021 Skating Season Registration Information
DUE TO CoVID-19 some of our Programs are not running for this season in order to satisfy the operating recommendations from Skate Canada and Alberta Health Services
We want the skaters in our club to be able to participate in sport and be as safe as possible while doing so.
Please see our COVID-19 updates below in RED.
Skaters and Coaches must arrive dressed and ready to take the ice (skates can be put on in the dressing room).
Doors to the THRC are only opened 15 minutes before the posted lesson time. Late comers must call the rink staff to be let in the doors.
the club must conduct contact tracing -- this means every lesson the parent who brings the child must sign in
any previous Pre-Canskaters will need to be evaluated to ensure that they can participate safely. The child must be able to move on the ice and get up with-out help (more to come on the evaluation process)
Coaches and Program Assistants will not be able to hold/carry the children to help them skate. Coaches and PA's must use verbal cues when instructing as much as possible.
Skaters must be as physically distanced as much as possible
Anyone participating in the activity (athlete, volunteer, official, etc.) should proactively and regularly check their health status (including taking their temperature and monitoring for any symptoms) in advance of arriving at the venue. Anyone due to participate who is feeling ill should not come to the venue.
If you or your child wishes, a mask or other face covering may be worn while on the ice.
ALL Registration will be ONLINE and email money transfers to the club are preferred.
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.
