CanSkate is Skate Canada’s Learn-to-Skate Program. CanSkate on-ice delivery focuses on continuous movement and emphasizes the use of newer and more dynamic group teaching concepts including the Fast Track, Fun Zone and Station Rotation all of which has been proven to increase practice opportunities and improve the rate of skill acquisition among skaters. More visual aids and music are used to create a fun, stimulating and welcoming environment.  Skaters receive report cards and award ribbons in addition to the Stage 1 to 6 badges.
