CANSKATE is Skate Canada’s flagship learn-to-skate program. It teaches the fundamentals of skating in a progressive and sequential manner. Designed for all ages, the focus is on fun, participation and basic skill development.
Pre-CanSkate is a 30 minute learn-to-skate program, especially designed for those participants who are 3-5 years of age, who have no skating experience. 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 1:8. Skaters who master PreCanSkate skills are moved to CanSkate level as soon as they are ready.
CanSkate Power program follows the same format as the CanSkate Stage 1-3 program. Skaters in the CanSkate Power program will learn the basic fundamentals of skating forwards, backwards, stopping and turning that will enhance their skills for hockey or ringette. A CSA approved hockey helmet is required for all participants. Participants must be in hockey skates and use hockey/ringette sticks and gloves.
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. Adult Canskaters must be wearing a helmet on their sessions. Please read the Helmet policy on this page.
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.
Please add $44 Skate Canada Fee to first registration for each skater (covers SC Membership for full year 1 September – 31 August). If your contact address is not in Mississauga, please add the non-resident fee ($30 per session to a max. of $60 per skating season for each skater)
This season MFSC is participating in the Skate Ontario Promotional Contest. Each skaters will receive a booklet of 20 raffle tickets valued at $40.00 that they may sell or keep. The $40.00 will be charged at the time of registration. If the skater sells all of their tickets the $40.00 goes back to the skater. A draw will be held in June 2022. These funds help to subsidize ice and program costs.
Parents accompanying a child on the Parent and Tot session must pay the $44 Skate Canada Fee for each parent attending; there is no skating fee for the parent(s). Parents must be wearing a helmet to be on the ice with their Tot.
