CANPOWER

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

CanPowerSkate 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 stop).

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

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 include off-ice training to develop cardio fitness, flexibility, strength and 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 gsc.coachdirector@gmail.com if you are interested.

STAR 1 Skaters are required to skate 2 times per week.

STAR 2 TO GOLD

We look forward to a fun spring session with our STARSkaters. Skate Canada recommends STAR Skaters skate at least twice a week and include off-ice training. Thus, we have developed special Junior and Senior Packages to help our STARSkaters progress despite the reduced ice time for the Spring session.

We know the morning sessions are hard for some families, but trust us, it will make a difference! And, some skaters actually like the morning sessions better as it means they can do more after-school activities with friends and family. You’ll grow to love ’em! ⏰

STAR 2 – 4 (Junior)

To align with Skate Canada’s STAR program,  STAR 2-4 skaters on Junior sessions will be placed in small groups and will have a minimum of 45 minutes of instruction for both on ice and off ice lessons.
