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.

In Short:​

  • 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.

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.

Details:

20 sessions (45 minutes each)

Juniors/Seniors STARSkate

Description: For those skaters who wish to progress beyond the levels of CanSkate. STARSkate offers opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating. Unique in Canada, this program teaches figure skating skills in a group and/or private lesson format in a progressive and sequential manner and includes specifically designed awards and incentives. Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada Tests through a nationally standardized testing system. Skaters who have mastered figure skating skills in STARSkate may also choose to pursue synchronized skating or pairs skating.

Junior skaters can still work on CanSkate skills in the Junior program before moving into the STAR levels.

Sessions to start October 4.

Day/Time: Sundays/9:00 - 11:00 AM

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL PROGRAMMING:

  1. Skate Canada Insurance/Membership Fee is non-refundable and will be added on to all registrations, payable once per year: $45 per skater.

  2. All programs are subject to change and are dependent on the number of registrants

  3. All programs are un-parented unless otherwise specified.

  4. For updated program times and schedule please refer to our Calendar & Events Page

  5. NEW MULTI-CHILD REGISTRATION DISCOUNT AVAILABLE: If you register 3 or more children into an NSC program you are eligible to receive either $50 off (for half season registration) OR $100 off (for full season registration)

Example: you have 4 children: 2 children are registered in CanSkate and 1 child in Junior STARSkate; all three are signed up for a full season with lessons on Sunday.

So... 2 x $300 (Sunday CanSKATE) = $600 + $700 (STARSkate) + 3 x $45 (Mandatory CanSkate Fee) = $1435 - Minus $100 (discount) = $1335 total registration due
