CanSkate (including PreCanSkate and Parent & Tot)
Each of these programs run in a group format, where the coach/skater ratio is 1:10 maximum, as well as program assistants in each group. Skaters progress at their own rate and each session includes teaching aids, music and activities to make learning to skate fun and progressive.
Similar to the CanSkate program but lessons in this program focuses on power, balance, agility, speed and endurance, the skills necessary for hockey.
This program focusses on developing figure skating skills in 4 different areas: Dance, Skills, Free Skate and Interpretive, ranging from preliminary to gold levels. StarSkaters have both group and private lessons that are paid for separately by the skaters.
