What is Teen Learn to Skate?
This program is designed for skaters 14 to 18 years of age who are interested in learning to skate but not comfortable learning on a traditional CanSkate session with younger skaters.
This session will focus on teaching skaters the fundamentals. This will allow them to be more comfortable going skating with friends or moving on to figure skating or hockey programs.
What equipment do skaters require?
- Skates: we recommend either hockey or figure skates (not adjustable skates). Please take the time to have your skater fitted properly and ensure new skates have been sharpened before your 1st session. Stability attachments on blades are not permitted, nor are chairs or other skating aids.
- A CSA approved hockey helmet is mandatory. Bicycle or skiing helmets are not acceptable. Your skater can wear a hockey helmet with or without a cage.
- Clothing appropriate for the cold that is comfortable to move in. We suggest skaters dress in layers and wear gloves or mittens on the ice.
Who is on the ice with the skaters?
All of our programs are taught by coaches certified with Skate Canada and the Coaching Association of Canada. They are also First Aid certified.
Currently this session shares the ice with our Adult skaters.
