CANPOWER – HOCKEY SKILLS
An excellent complement for athletes playing on hockey or ringette teams. The dynamic program is taught by Skate Canada certified CANPower instructors.

Full hockey equipment is required. Hockey sticks will sometimes be used, but no shooting or passing of pucks.

STAR 1 – Summer Registration opens June 6th at 7pm
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 include off-ice training to develop cardio fitness, flexibility, strength, control and reduce the risk of injury on the ice. Entry to this program is by invitation only through the CANSkate program or scheduled assessments. Please email email@example.com if you are interested.
Sunday, July 3rd – August 14th – Sunset Arena
4:40-5:30pm – Star 1 Off Ice
