Skate Canada has developed a new CanSkate program based on Sport Canada’s long term athlete development (LTAD) principles. Exciting new features include a fresh new look, new awards, great tools for coaches and most importantly a tested and proven new curriculum and delivery methods that guarantee skater success in developing stronger basic skills and developing them faster.

 

But there’s more! The new program also includes specific skills that pertain to hockey, ringette, speed skating and figure skating. The result is a dynamic new program that prepares all skaters for virtually every ice sport.

 

Skate Canada is also proud to have all its programs taught by professional coaches who are specially trained and certified through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP).

Shooting Star

The Shooting Star program for children under 6 as of July 1st is designed as our fast track program into figure skating.  Skaters must be in figure skates and skate both Tuesdays and Saturdays.  Ideally participants have been on the ice for 1 lesson set at some point previously.  

 

A 15 minute off ice component is incorporated into this program to introduce parts of skating better suited for the floor at this stage and to start building strong habits required to move into future programs.  

 

Additional skating days are available in our “Bridge” program between Junior Star and Intermediate.  These may be recommended and are on an invite only option at this time.
