CanSkate is Skate Canada’s learn-to-skate program, designed for beginners of all ages. This program focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. Skaters earn badges (7 in total) as they learn fundamental skating skills. Lessons are given in a group format and coached by an NCCP certified professional coach.
Skaters are encouraged to progress at their own rate and our coaches make the sessions active by using various teaching aids, music and a wide variety of activities that create a fun environment and promote learning.
Please note: As of July 1, 2011, Skate Canada requires all CanSkate and Adult CanSkate participants up to and including Stage 5 to wear a CSA approved hockey helmet while on the ice. The St. Thomas Skating Club is required to enforce this policy.
