Parent & Tot CanSkate is a program developed to allow a family member to assist in their young skaters development. This program allows the skaters to receive hands-on assistance from a family member who they know, trust and is in their cohort.
This program introduces the fundamental skating skills such as balance and glide by using fun interactive games and activities. Parents & Tots will follow the CanSkate curriculum which is divided into 6 stages. Each of these stages are divided into Balance, Control and Agility. Adults and skaters will participate in small group lessons led by an NCCP certified professional coach. Upon mastering the skills in this program, skaters will move into our CanSkate program.
Both the skater and the family member must be registered with Skate Canada.
Note: Parents/Adults must be 15 years of age and have basic skating skills (balance on two feet, move forward and stop). This means they must wear skates.
