Pre-Canskate:

The Pre-CanSkate program is designed to assist younger skaters, ages 3 and 4, to learn to skate.

Participants learn to walk and gain balance to progress to gliding and then towards the fundamental movements on the ice.

The goal of the Pre-CanSkate program is to introduce skaters to their equipment and ease those who are uneasy about skating and being away from their parents into our programming. The goal is to work with the skater as they work towards their Pre-CanSkate ribbon.

These sessions are taught in a group lesson format both on and off the ice by NCCP Nationally Certified Professional Coaches.
