CANSKATE 

CANSkate is Skate Canada’s flagship learn-to-skate program, designed for beginners of all ages. This program focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development.  Celebrating Skate Canada’s CANSkate program, GRANDVIEW SKATING CLUB offers expert coaching and a high ratio of program assistants to skaters. Skaters will earn badges and other incentives as they learn fundamental skating skills such as balance, control and agility that pertain to hockey, ringette, speed skating and figure skating. The result is a dynamic program that prepares all skaters for virtually every ice sport

STAR 1

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 an invitation through our CanSkate program or you may request an assessment by emailing grandviewsk8club@gmail.com

Wednesdays
3:30pm – 5:00pm
Saturdays

STAR 1 skaters must register for two sessions weekly. Skaters interested in three days weekly can be accommodated by request. 


CANPOWER 

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

CanPowerSkate U 11 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. CanPowerSkate U18 is a fast-paced and intensive training for those playing Rep or similar programs.

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

Tuesdays – 5:15 PM – 6:00 PM (11 & Over – Peewee & Over)
Thursdays – 3:30 PM – 4:15 PM (11 & Under – Atom & Under, shared ice with Canskate)


STARSKATE

STAR 2 to 4

To better align with Skate Canada’s STAR program, we instruct our skaters in a group lesson format to maximize coached time and better improve skating skills. STAR 2-4 skaters will be placed in a group of 3-4 and will be coached for the entire 45-minute session, or 45 minutes with 15 minutes of supervised practice on an hour-long session. This will create well-rounded skaters as various disciplines of skating are covered in this time.

  • Skaters should register for a minimum of two days of ice time to progress their skating skills at a junior level, and 3 days at an intermediate/senior level.
  • If skaters are looking for more time to work on their skating, the Open and MPI sessions provide 45-90 minutes of ice time, with one 15-minute lesson included each week for STAR 2, 3 and 4 skaters. The ice is shared with STAR 5 and up skaters.
