CANSkate Ages 3yrs & Up
Stage 1-6 Adult / Teen CANSkate (All Levels)
45 minute lesson
An excellent complement for athletes playing on hockey or ringette teams.The dynamic program is taught by Skate Canada certified CANPower instructors.
Grandview’s Hockey Skills program is geared to skaters aged approximately six or older who already have basic forward and backward skating skills (they must be able to skate the length of the rink using alternate strides) and are able to stop on command without use of the boards.
Full hockey equipment is required. Hockey sticks will sometimes be used, but no shooting or passing of pucks.
The STAR 1 program is a bridge between CANSkate and the STARSkate program. STAR 1 skaters will work in smaller groups with a professional coach and learn figure skating skills such as jumps, edges, spirals, spins, turns and ice dances.
Classes are offered in 90 minute sessions which includes off- ice training to develop cardio fitness, flexibility, strength, control and reduce risk of injury on ice. Entry to this program requires the approval of the Coaching Director. Please contact Jolene if you are interested.
Sessions below include on and off-ice lessons.
