Progression Chart

CanPowerSkate consists of skills divided into six levels, arranged in progressions that gradually increase in complexity. Levels 1 to 3 focus on the fundamentals of skating and Levels 4 to 6 place additional focus on the acquisition of efficient technique, speed, agility, technical aspects of stride and acceleration and skating with the puck/ring. Skaters are evaluated on skill level and are timed as they perform a test involving skills in a course-like pattern. The skater receives a mark combining his skill performance plus test time. This determines whether the skater receives a Bronze, Silver or Gold award bar for that Level.
