Learn to Skate Programs


Due to uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic a final draft of our winter calendar is not currently available.  We are hopeful that an update will be available by January 4th.  


Skating is one of the most popular sports in the world today. In Canada more than six million people lace up skates every year, and there are many winter celebrations that feature skating. Through the inclusive programming we offer, we encourage people to become involved and stay involved for life. 

Pre-CanSkate programs are un-parented and designed for children 3+ years of age who have not skated before or who are not yet confident on the ice. 

PreCanPower is an introductory power skating program geared to skaters typically between 4 - 6 years of age who are interested in or currently in a first time hockey or ringette program.  This is NOT a Learn to Skate program; skaters should be able to skate forwards and backwards PRIOR to registering and/or have passed the PreCanSkate program. 

CanSkate is a learn-to-skate program for beginners of all ages as well as for those wishing to improve their basic skills.
