Make Ups for Missed ClassesSkaters sign up for a specific session and cannot be accommodated on another session if they have to miss a day for any reason unless prearranged with a coach.


The Pre-CanSkate program is an un-parented program designed for children 3 to 5 years of age, who have never skated before or who are not yet confident on the ice. We accept younger skaters at the discretion of the coach. This program teaches children the basics of how to get up when they fall down, how to move forward, basic backward movement and how to stop. Lessons are taught by Skate Canada Certified Professional Coaches and trained Program Assistants in a group format so children must be somewhat independent and not require one-on-one supervision. These sessions are shorter in length to accommodate the younger skater. Skaters will learn in an energetic, fun environment using skating aids and toys with the goal of having fun.

There are 8 basic skills for the skaters in this program:

  1. Fall down and get up
  2. Balance on 2 feet
  3. Move forward
  4. Make snow
  5. Move backward
  6. 2-foot twist
  7. 360° march
  8. 2-foot jump
