Pre CanSkate is designed to help skaters learn the basic skills needed to begin a CanSkate program. In the Pre CanSkate setting your child will receive more individualized attention from our trained program assistants (PA). We have decided to include the Pre CanSkate Session on with Stage 1 to help ease transition. This is also the case with our PAs. There will be one program assistant to every 2-3 skaters so that the transition into stage one will help your skater to develop more independence. Due to availability of PAs we ask that any skater under the age of 4 after Dec. 31 be accompanied by a Skate Canada Registered adult.
