CanSkate is a nationally standardized Learn-To-Skate program founded by Skate Canada for skaters aged 5-12 years old. The program is designed to build foundational skating skills and abilities for those interested in pursuing hockey, figure skating, ringette, speed skating, or to simply learn how to skate! Skaters progress through the stages of the program by achieving ribbons in three categories: Agility, Balance, and Control. Following “circuits” drawn on the ice, every session guarantees skaters’ continuous movement. All coaches are trained through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), and the maximum ratio of coaches to skaters is 1:10.
