CanSkate Program

CanSkate group lessons are for ages 5 and up,  with a focus on fun, fitness, and participation!

The CanSkate Program stresses progressive learning through fundamental movements explored in 6 stages of learning: forward/backwards skating, stopping, turning, spinning, jumping, and gliding. Each of the 6 stages has a primary focus; once a skater masters the skills at a stage, they are awarded a badge. 

The program is taught in Group Lesson format by Professional Club Coaches helped by trained volunteer Program Assistants (PAs). Our coaches and PAs work as a team to ensure that skaters have fun and achieve success on the ice.  Continual assessment will be done by our Professional Coaches throughout the season. Badges and Progress Report Cards will be given out at the end of each session. 

CanSkate is a feeder program for the PreSTAR and STARskate programs. As well, it will help skaters develop basic skating techniques necessary for ringette and hockey. 

**CSA approved skating helmets are mandatory for all skaters** 

Please dress your skater in warm, ice-friendly clothing. No scarves. Molded or plastic skates are NOT recommended. Skaters must be 5 years of age by December 31, 2023.

Year End Carnival - March 3, 2024

To showcase our skaters, we hold a year-end Ice Carnival. This annual event includes skaters from ALL programs enrolled in Session B. It is an excellent way to finish the season, and a real hit with participants and spectators alike! Skaters have group routines choreographed, and costumes, provided by Lacombe Skating Club, for the show. 

Participation in Carnival is completely optional, however we ask you let your coach know as soon as possible if your skater will not be participating. Lessons do continue for all skaters, and lesson format may take on a follow the leader type structure as routines, for those participating, begin to take shape
