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 a full 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. With a maximum of 10 skaters per group (regular CanSkate) and 6 skaters per group (FastTrack). The 30 minutes CanSkate for tots is open to children ages 2-5, and covers levels Pre-Canskate to State 2. 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.
