CanSkate is designed to teach skaters a complete series of Balance, Agility and Control skills to prepare them for any ice skating sport or recreational skating.
The program provides a fun environment with bright colours and age appropriate teaching aids to make every session interesting and entertaining for all participants.
The CanSkate program is delivered by Nationally certified coaches trained specifically in teaching the mechanics of proper technique of skating. Our program is designed to allow skaters to progress at their own pace.
It is highly recommended to view your skaters session from the seating area as this will give our coaching staff the skaters full attention. Please remember that no parents are allowed on the ice.
Skaters should wear comfortable/flexible clothing, this will help your skater move freely while learning how to skate. Snow suits are not recommended as they are restricting and very hot.
CanSkate Private Lessons are designed to help skaters reach their goals by giving skaters personal attention in conjunction with the group instruction already provided. This program has limited enrollment. Our coaches at the Mariposa School of Skating are National Coach Certified level 1-5 and work with skaters from beginner to World and Olympic level. Lessons through this program are 15 minutes in duration and will be taught by a variety coaches set up by our Co-Ordinator to help your skater sample different coaching styles as well as getting help with different disciplines within skating.
