Equipment needed: hockey or figure skates with good support (avoid molded skates) and approved hockey helmet.
Program will only be offered on sufficient registration numbers.
CanSkate will look a little different this year because of restrictions due to COVID 19. We will not be running preschool skate and all skaters must be able to get up and move independently on the ice as well as use the washroom independently if needed.
The program for CanSkate includes 3 lessons from a coach in 3 fundamental areas, Balance, Control and Agility. The focus is on training a well rounded skater who has the skills to pursue any ice sport including hockey, ringette, speed skating and figure skating with the skills learned in the program. We follow a Long Term Athlete Development model to strive for success for our skaters not only during their skating season but into the future as well. The CanSkate program will run Friday from 4-4:45
Skates are available for rent, please contact coach Kimber at [email protected] to arrange a time to try on skates if needed, or she will be available the first night of skating from 3-4pm for skates. All rental skates must be cared for by wearing skate guards when not on the ice and they are only to be sharpened at The Sharpening Den in Moose Jaw.
