All of our club programs follow the guidelines and standards set forth by Skate Canada, our governing body. Our season runs from the beginning of October to the end of March.

Our PRECANSKATE program is designed for ages 3-5 and teaches basic skating skills through fun and play in a group setting. CSA approved hockey helmets are mandatory and a chin guard or facemask is strongly recommended.

Our PARENT & TOT program, is basically the same as PreCanSkate, but one parent is permitted on the ice with their child. Skates, helmets, and basic skating ability are the requirements for the parent who will be accompanying their child.

CANSKATE is a basic Learn-To-Skate program for beginners that teaches fundamental movements and basic skills in a group setting. This program prepares kids for any ice sport whether it be hockey, ringette, speed skating, figure skating, or just pleasure skating for fitness and fun. Skaters advance through 6 CANSKATE badge levels by achieving ribbons for Balance, Control and Agility at each level. CSA approved hockey helmets are mandatory and a chin guard or facemask is strongly recommended.

JUNIOR PARTIAL: Our JUNIOR PARTIAL program is a stepping stone program for those skaters transitioning from the Canskate program to a full Junior program. The skater will skate one session in the Canskate group and another session on our Jr/Sr ice time. CSA helmets are optional.

Our JUNIOR/SENIOR STARSKATE program is a concentrated Figure Skating Program with much individual practice and private instruction in Free Skate, Ice Dance, Skating Skills, and the option of Artistic. Skaters progress through the Skate Canada tests with the ultimate goal of achieving their Gold Test levels and have the opportunity, if they wish, to attend various competitions throughout the season.

SUPER STARSKATE is a program geared to STARSkaters who are unable to commit to a full program but wish to continue skating. They have the opportunity to sign up for a partial program, take private lessons, test Skate Canada tests and participate in all club activities.
