Our Pre-CanSkate program is an introductory session taught by professional coaches. It is taught in a flexible manner, and is designed to be an enjoyable time for preschool children (ages 3-5) while they learn the fundamentals of skating. Pre-CanSkate precedes the beginner skating program, CanSkate.
Equipment for Pre-CanSkate:
- Helmet: CSA approved helmets are mandatory for Pre-CanSkaters.
- Skate guards: All skaters must have skate guards on their blades when not on the ice, including in the arena lobby.
- Skates: We recommend “lace-up” skates, as they provide the best support, allow proper movement, and accommodate adjustable fit. The skate’s boot must be firm, and must provide good support to the foot and ankle.
- Warm clothing: Skaters should dress warmly and comfortably to enjoy their skating experience and enhance their skating skills. Snow pants or nylon pants over top of layers of clothing are a good idea as they provide warmth and dryness during the session.
For the safety and well being of all of our Pre-CanSkate skaters, parents must stay in the arena where their child can see them at all times, and skaters should never be left at the arena alone.
