Connaught Skating Club proudly presents Canskate, the Skate Canada designed  “Learn to Skate Program” for all. This innovative and progressive ice skating program can take you from your first steps on the ice through to involvement in the ice sport of your choice.  Canskate provides the fundamental skills required for all types of ice sports: hockey, ringette, speed skating and figure skating. Group lessons include 45 minutes of professional coaching, from one of our Skate Canada Nationally certified coaches, to enhance the fun factor and create a great learning environment. Badges and certificates will now be awarded upon achievement of various levels within the program. There will be special event days, themed days and on-ice parties, music and fun throughout the sessions.

Please note: 

Rental skates and helmets are not available during our sessions - you must bring your own equipment.

All Parents/Guardians are responsible for their children while at the arena. Do not leave your children unattended. The Club is not responsible to provide child supervision.

Helmets:  On July 1, 2011 Skate Canada implemented a helmet use policy. In order to participate in the Canskate Program, all skaters who have not achieved Stage 5 in the CanSkate program or who lack good balance and control must wear a CSA approved hockey helmet while on the ice - not a bike or ski helmet.
