Pre-CanSkate is for skaters 10 years and younger who have no experience skating, or cannot stand or move on ice yet. (Must be 4 years old by the start of the program.)  IF your skater is over 10 years of age, the Adult/TeenSkate program is available for beginners.

Skaters will learn in a group format and be introduced to basic skating skills and movements. The skaters will progress in a fun, friendly, and high energy environment, working on skills like balancing, falling/standing, and moving forward. Once a skater has completed the program they will move on to CanSkate.

Skaters in a 10 (or longer) week program will receive an assessment at the end of the season.

Skaters in a 10 week program will receive an assessment at the end of the season.

Children must be three years old by the start date of the program.

Parents/Guardians must be registered in Parent n' Tot Parent Registration and covered by a Skate Canada Insurance fee, prior to stepping on the ice. Skates are mandatory for parents.
