INTRODUCTION TO SKATING
This program allows a family member to be on the ice with the young skaters who require hands-on assistance. The adult on the ice will be someone the skater knows, trusts and is in their cohort.
Both the skater and the family member will have insurance through Skate Canada. The family member's fee is included in the cost of the session.
Adults and skaters will participate in a small group lesson delivered by professional coaches and trained program assistants. Coaching aids and verbal cues will used to guide parents and skaters through circuits. Circuits allow for skill progressions to be practiced and all skills to be performed more than once per session. Skills will be adapted as needed to properly challenge each skater.
Both the adult and child need:
- a CSA-approved hockey helmet
- long pants, mittens and a warm sweater or jacket.
Adults must be at least 15 years of age and have basic skating skills (balance on 2 feet, move forwards and stop).
One adult per one skater.
