The Pre-Canskate/Intro to CanSkate program is meant to introduce your child to the skating world with you at his or her side. The program is adapted from the CanSkate program, so you will see a lot of similarities and a few differences. The two main differences include the session length of 30 minutes, and the adult partner. We hope having a parent or family friend there alongside them will be a comfort. Due to insurance purposes, the same parent must accompany the skater, on skates, to each session.This program is for younger skaters as a parent or guardian (in skates) will accompany the child on the ice. It is not based on ability, but more emotional readiness. If your skater can manage being on the ice without a parent or guardian, you can choose CanSkate rather than Pre-Canskate.
Dear PRE-CANSkate Parents:
Welcome to Skate Brandon’s PRE-CANSkate program!
The PRE-CANSkate program is meant to introduce your child to the skating world with you at his or her side. The program is adapted from the CANSkate program, so you will see some similarities and a few differences. We hope that having a known adult alongside them will be a comfort. Due to insurance purposes, the same adult must accompany the skater to each session.
PRE-CANSkate will follow the Skate Canada delivery standards of CANSkate emphasizing fun and continuous movement, taught in a group lesson format, teaching fundamental movements (Balance, Control & Agility) and basic skills. PRE-CANSkate is taught by a Skate Canada Professional Coach. Awards and incentives are used to motivate skaters to achieve and develop their skills as well as to keep interest high!! PRE-CANSkate is the feeder program into the CANSkate program.
