WINTER 2021 (January to March) CanSkate & Adult CanSkate Schedules and Registration Information to be posted by middle of November. The link to the Schedule will be posted under the flip boxes below.
Please review the following details prior to registering your skater(s):
- Skaters MUST be a minimum of 5-years of age OR have passed the DSC Pre-CanSkate stage 3 to register for CanSkate.
- 4-year old skaters with some skating experience will be considered. Please email the office ([email protected]).
- Skaters MUST be able to fall-down and stand up on their own as well as move forward unassisted. There will be no refunds for skaters who are unable to do so and cannot participate. NO “new to skating” skaters permitted.
- At this time, there will be NO hands-on assists. All coaching will be through demonstration and verbal cues.
- No Pre-CanSkate will be offered.
- We are unable to accept registrations for our Inclusive Skating program at this time. If your skater requires assistance (an aide/other), please contact our office.
- Coaches are NOT permitted to touch or adjust ANY skater equipment (including but not limited to skates and helmets). We will provide videos for parents on how to properly tie skates and fit helmets prior to the first class and coaches will flag down parents to adjust these if needed. Please purchase skates with laces (not plastic skates with buckles) and ensure your skater has a CSA approved hockey/skating helmet. Bike, ski, or other helmets are not permitted.
- Class sizes are reduced to promote physical distancing. Parents/guardians MUST remain physically distanced in the stands.
- Please plan for no use of dressing rooms. Skaters need to arrive “ice ready” (skates, helmets, and gloves on). The use of skate guards is mandatory as skaters may need to walk on unprotected surfaces when entering/exiting the ice surface to ensure one-way traffic flow. Skater should be wearing clean gloves each week.
- Non-medical masks are mandatory in all City facilities. All skaters and their parent/guardian will be required to wear a mask in the building and during class time. Coaches and volunteers will always be wearing masks.
- Only ONE accompanying adult permitted into the building with each skater and they must remain in the stands for the duration of the session.
- Prior to every class, skaters will be checked in and a verbal Health Screening will be conducted. Skaters who have any symptom of illness are NOT permitted to attend their classes, even if symptoms resemble that of a mild cold. For the safety of all participants and our staff, please be honest and vigilant during this time.

The Fall schedule has been developed following AHS, Provincial, and Skate Canada’s Return to Skating guidelines. Safety for all is priority.
