This program is the entry level for beginners who are at least 3 1/2 years as of July 1st. Children are placed into groups according to ability and taught by a Professional Coach and assisted by Program Assistants. The focus of this program is to make skating fun! 

Skating skills taught range from learning to stand and balance to going forwards and backwards. The Pre-CanSkate program is a readiness vehicle to prepare skaters for CanSkate. Once the skaters have passed the set criteria and mastered the essentials needed to move safely and effectively on the ice they can be moved into a CanSkate Stage 1 group on that same session or another club CanSkate session if space permits.

All skaters must have a CSA approved ice skating helmet. Bike helmets are not acceptable. Parents are not permitted on the ice with their children.  Some parents also have their children wear other protective equipment like knee and shoulder pads.  Skaters should be dressed warmly but not in clothing that is restrictive. Parents of Pre-CanSkate children must have someone at the arena that is responsible for their child while he/she is on the ice.

Sessions are 18 weeks in duration and each Pre-CanSkate session is 40 minutes long.  

During the first 5 minutes of the session coaches and program assistants will setup and prepare for the 30 minute lesson followed by tear down during the last 5 minutes of the session.  

Program Cost: $305.00
