Session Descriptions

Pre-CanSkate

Skaters will be taught the basic skating skills - how to stand, fall down, get up, balance, move forward and backward - with a focus on continuous movement through fun activities to keep skaters interested in learning. 
The skater to coach ration on the ice is 10:1 or less. (Not a prerequisite for CanSkate). Skaters must turn 3 years old by the end of skating term. (March 2020) Skaters are awarded ribbons for basic skills.

CanSkate

This program is designed for beginners of all ages. The focus is on fun, participation and basic skill development. Returning skaters (Stages 1 to 6) and those skaters new to the program but can at least stand and move forward on their own with little to no help. (Coach ratio on this ice is 10:1 or less). Skaters are awarded Badges & ribbons for basic skills.

Bronze Development

The bronze development session will allow our STAR 1 – 3 Level Skaters the chance to work on the fundamentals of skating in a group setting. During this sessions skaters will be divided into groups that will rotate through stations that are led by professional coaches and focus on things such as Skating Skills, Turns, Dance, Field Movements, Basic Spin Technique and Basic Jump Technique. Coaching fees and ice time are included in the cost. Max 26 skaters.

Freeskate (Bronze, Silver, Gold)

During a session labeled as a Freeskate session skaters are overseen by their private coaches. The registration fees for these sessions covers the ice time only. Coaching fees are billed separately by the coaches according to the arrangements made between the skater and coach. (If there is a group session in conjunction with this Freeskate session the cost of this will be included as well - Please see below). It is up to each skater’s coach how their lesson time and structure is organized.

Group Sessions

We are pleased to offer group sessions throughout the week for all STARSkate/Competitive levels. These sessions will be led by our club’s professional coaches and will rotate through lesson topics that include Jump Technique, Edge Development, Basic Synchro Skills, Dance Elements, Endurance, Building Power, Creative Expression and more. There will also be numerous warm-up and cool down exercises done in the group session format.

The registration fee for this session covers ice time and coaching and is included in the cost of the corresponding freeskate session for that day.

Spin Sessions

The Spin session will give our skaters an opportunity to work on their spins in a group setting. During this session led by our professional coach’s skaters will be placed into groups based on level which will rotate through several stations that will cover all basic spin variations, technique, variations and much more. Coaching fees and ice time are included in the cost. Max 24 skaters for Gold/Silver and 30 Skaters for Silver/Bronze.

Skills Development

The session is run by two coaches, and each week one coach will lead the session while the other focuses on corrections and provides more individualized attention. During the year, skaters will develop their edge quality and turn quality, power, expression, posture, knee and ankle bend, extension, synchronicity, musicality and timing. This year we have two Skill Development sessions: Juvenile/Star 4+ session for skaters at the Juvenile synchro and/or STAR 4 Skills level and up; the Star 1-3 session is for skaters from Beginner through Pre-Juvenile synchro and/or STAR 1-3 Skills levels. These sessions provide an opportunity for less experienced skaters to learn from those with more experience, and more experienced skaters have an opportunity to focus on individual improvement.

Off-Ice Training

Off-Ice Training is provided in a group setting, usually in our warm room. During the session skaters will work on agility and strength training, core and balance work, athletic/skating related games specific to skating skills. 

Off-Season Skating Schools

Our Club season generally runs from October through March/April. During our off-season there are a few organizations that provide off-season skating schools that our skaters may access. Please visit our Off-Season Skating Schools page for more information on sessions and how to register.
