This Skate Canada learn-to-skate program is specially designed for
beginners who are 3-5 years of age.  
Fun and continuous movement is
the focus while learning basic skating skills such as balance, skating
forwards, backwards, and stopping.  Lessons are led by NCCP certified
professional coaches and assisted by qualified Program Assistants.
Progression to the CanSkate program is encouraged on the Coach's
recommendation.  Helmets are
mandatory. Skate Canada and the
Niagara-on-the-Lake Skating Club recommend all Pre-School
participants wear a CSA approved
hockey helmet.
Pre-CanSkate & CanSkate Information
Parents/Guardians of Pre-CanSkate and CanSkate skaters must
remain at the arena during lesson time for their children's safety and
most of all your encouragement.  A large bulletin board is at the
information table every Pre-CanSkate and CanSkate session.  Please
review the board weekly for upcoming events, ice cancellations or
changes. Make sure you check the calendar given to you at
registration for club activities and other updates.
