CanSkate is a dynamic learn-to-skate program that focuses on fun, participation, and basic skill development. Based on Sport Canada’s Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) principles, CanSkate centres on physical literacy and the fundamental skills needed to take part in any ice sport or skating recreationally. This program is for beginners of all ages, children, and adults. This is also for those wishing to improve their basic on-ice skills—whether it be for figure skating, hockey, speed skating, or recreational skating. Lessons are given in a group format with a coach-to-student ratio of a maximum 1:10. Skaters progress at their own rate. Coaches make sessions active using teaching aids, upbeat music, and a wide variety of activities that create a motivational environment and promote learning. Badges, ribbons and other incentives are used to benchmark skaters’ progress and reward effort and participation. A CSA approved helmet is mandatory for all skaters below Stage 5 CanSkate.
All skaters participating in CanSkate are required to be Skate Canada Members. A non-refundable membership fee of $45 will be billed to each participant separate from their program registration fees. Membership runs from September 1, 2017 – August 31, 2018.
Thursdays – September 14–November 30
Time: 6–7pm

CK Hockey and the RGC are excited to now offer participants semi-private training through a registered program that runs weekly throughout the fall and winter seasons. Training will focus on power skating techniques, stick handling, passing, shooting, positioning, and conditioning in a semi-private training setting. This allows coaches to tailor lesson plans and skill development to suit individual players’ needs. On-ice sessions will include a combination of high repetitions and drills designed to develop and improve specific skills that transfer directly to competitive game situations and achieve desired player development goals.
Each registered program will include one hour of ice time per week. Skaters have the option to register for additional ice times by registering in multiple programs. CK Hockey will run two semiprivate sessions during each ice-time to accommodate variance in age and skill. The grouping of students will be regularly evaluated and adjusted in order to ensure an optimal learning and developmental environment. Each session will be taught by one coach and
six participants are required per program. Participants will work with both coaches on a weekly basis.

Instructors: Sean Connauton, Dustin Kohn
