The CanSkate program is for skaters who have completed the Pre-CanSkate program and is beneficial for any skater with an interest in ice sports (hockey, ringette, figure skating or speed skating).
Participants are placed in groups according to ability and earn badges while they learn fundamental skating skills. The CanSkate program emphasizes fun and continuous movement and is taught in a group lesson format.
Familiar with CanSkate? This is CanSkate – even Better! Skate Canada has developed a new CanSkate program based on Sport Canada’s long term athlete development (LTAD) principles. Exciting 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. The result is a dynamic new program that prepares all skaters for virtually every ice sport.
THE BEST RESULTS
The Cochrane Skating Club is pleased to offer the CanSkate program to Cochrane and surrounding areas.
What do you need to participate? All you need are skates (no molded plastic skates please), a CSA-approved hockey helmet, long pants, mittens, warm sweater or jacket. Dress in layers – it will get warm! See our CSC CanSkate & PreCanskate Pre-Season Info Handout for more information on equipment fit. Please note – the helmet policy is strictly enforced. No bike helmets are permitted. Please read carefully to avoid disappointment.
What is the schedule? What is the cost? Please see the Schedule & Pricing section for more information.
What happens on the first day? Please arrive with ample time to get your child ready. When you arrive, pick up your name badge and look on the rink screen in the lobby to see what dressing room has been assigned for your class. When you skater is ready, please do not go onto the ice until a coach has opened the rink door (this applies to all future classes as well). The first day can look quite hectic. There can be some switching of group and adjustments to ensure all skaters are in appropriate groups according to skill level.
