PRE-CANSKATE


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 Intro.

Parent Letter

2018/2019

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.

-Please ensure your child/children have CSA approved helmets.

-Dress your skaters for the temperatures – layers are recommended but be sure they are able to move freely in the clothes they wear.

-Be sure to remember their mitts.

-NO GUM is allowed on the ice.

Our PRE-CanSkate coach this season is Kelly Walker and Lauren Doyle.  Kelly will be available by email skatebrandon@wcgwave.ca to answer questions you may have about your child’s progress or the program itself.  During the session ice time we would like her to focus her attention on the children in lessons.

*** NOTE ***

 IF YOUR CHILD(REN) ARE SICK OR NOT FEELING WELL, PLEASE KEEP THEM AT HOME UNTIL THEY ARE BACK TO 100%.  THIS WILL HELP NOT ONLY THEIR HEALTH, BUT ALSO THE HEALTH OF THE OTHER SKATERS, COACHES AND PARENTS.  YOUR SKATER WILL BE CAUGHT UP ON ANYTHING HE OR SHE MAY MISS WHILE GETTING BETTER.

 SKATE BRANDON IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CANCELLATION OF SCHEDULED ICE DUE TO TIME CONFLICTS OR UNFORSEEN EVENTS BY THE KEYSTONE CENTRE. 

REFUNDS WILL NOT BE GIVEN IF YOUR CHILD MISSES AN ICE TIME DUE TO A SCHEDULE CHANGE THAT IS OUT OF THE CONTROL OF SKATE BRANDON.

 If anyone has any concerns or comments, Kelly is available for questions or you may contact the Skate Brandon office anytime at skatebrandon@wcgwave.ca.  Good luck and enjoy your skating experience with us!
