Skaters will also have the opportunity to learn skills that aren't necessarily within the CanSkate report card parameters. Although they won't be assessed on these specific skills - these learnings are considered a key component to an Academy CanSkaters future success and will be help the skater in mastering skills to be used in later CanSkate levels or StarSkate.
CanSkate ribbons and badges will not be the focus of the Academy session. Our Academy skaters will have the opportunity to gain these ribbons and badges. As our Academy skaters skate twice a week (Academy + one additional CanSkate session) , they will have the opportunity to work primarily on their ribbons and badges in their second weekly session (Accelerated CanSkate or regular CanSkate).
