This year’s first group of CanSkate participants enjoyed their last lesson as family members also took to the ice to share in some festive fun.

It was a celebration of their achievements. Many of the skaters were new to the ice, some had tried it once or twice and others were quite seasoned.

Whatever the stage, it was obvious that each skater was proud of his/her achievements as they received various awards for control, balance and agility.

CanSkate offers a nationally tested and proven curriculum by Skate Canada. The professional delivery methods guarantee skater success.

The program also promotes, fun, fitness and participation as it introduces a lifelong activity at an early age.

About 95% of Canadian kids know how to skate or intend to learn. Skate Canada has been teaching Canadians how to skate since 1987 in over 1200 clubs across the country.

Kids receive professional coaching that provides them with the best foundation for any ice skating sport or recreational skating.

The skaters love the music, action and fun as they continuously move along the ice and learn new skills.

CanSkate is offering registration for the next lesson in January, 2016.
