CANSKATE is our flagship learn to skate program, designed for beginners of all ages.

When you sign up for CANSKATE you will be in a program that focuses on fun, participation, and basic skill development. You will earn badges and other incentives as you learn fundamental skating skills. Lessons are in a group format and led by a CANSKATE Certified Professional Coach. Professional Coaches are assisted by trained Program Assistants(PA's). The Coach/student ratio is 1:10. Skaters progress at their own rate and coaches make sessions active using teaching aids, music and a wide variety of activities that create a fun environment and promote learning. CANSKATE is the feeder program to all other Skate Canada Skating Programs.

Program consists of: Stages 1-6 levels, and current fundamental movements plus four new components have been reconfigured into three fundamental areas. Balance, Control, and Agility.
