CanSkate - Group Lessons


Our CanSkate group classes are designed for skaters ages 4-10 with prior skating experience.

CanSkate is the Skate Canada flagship learn-to-skate program, and children are divided into groups by skill level.

Skaters in CanSkate groups will advance through the six CanSkate stages, and earn badges and ribbons based on their mastery of the three fundamental skill groups of skating: balance, agility and control.

The coach to skater ratio in a CanSkate group is 1:10.  The grouping of the children will depend on their level of expertise.  All CanSkate groups are taught by Skate Canada trained and certified coaches. 

Equipment Requirements:

  • Skates (either hockey or figure skates- no skates with buckles/straps/second blade)
  • CSA-approved hockey helmet
  • gloves/mittens
  • warm clothing/layers
