Pre-CanSkate (Ages 3 to 5)

Pre-CanSkate is a 30 minute learn-to-skate program, especially designed for those participants who are 3-5 years of age. Lessons are in a group format and led by an Nationally Certified Professional Coach with the assistance of trained Program Assistants. The coach/program assistant to student ratio is 1:6. Skaters who master PreCanSkate skills are moved to CanSkate level as soon as they are ready.

Adult Canskate (Ages 18 and up)

Adult CanSkate is a 40 minute session that follows the same format as the CanSkate program, with the exception of badges and incentives. Lessons are in a group format and led by an Nationally Certified Professional Coach. No previous skating experience is required. Please read the Helmet policy on this page.

Parent and Tot Skate (Ages 2 to 4)

Parent and Tot is a 30 minute session designed so young children can experience skating for the first time in the company of a parent.

The same parent must accompany the skater on the ice for each class. The parent must be able to skate forwards and backwards, and stop on the ice, and must wear a helmet at all times.
