CANSKATE POWER (AGES 5 AND UP)
CanSkate Power program follows the same format as the CanSkate Stage 1-4 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. Lessons are taught in a group format by a Certified Skate Canada Professional Coach, with a group size of no more then 10 skaters. A CSA approved hockey helmet is required for all participants. Participants must be in hockey skates and use hockey/ringette sticks and gloves.
POWERSKATE (AGES 5 AND UP)
Skaters must have completed CanSkate Power Stage 4 or CanSkate Stage 4 or equivalent.
The PowerSkate program has been designed to focus on the development of 15 basic skill sets divided into three fundamental areas: Balance, Control and Agility. Recognizing that skating is a foundational skill for hockey and ringette, this program allows for the opportunity to focus on skating outside of the game or practice. The program is designed to allow flexibility for progression or an increase in intensity as needed, to cater to the level of skaters in the program. Taught by NCCP Certified Professional Coaches. A CSA approved hockey helmet is required for all participants. Participants must be in hockey skates and use hockey/ringette sticks and gloves.
