Do I need to pay the Skate Canada membership and Safe Sport fee?

Yes, all participants require a current Skate Canada membership. Their registration year runs September 1st to August 31st of the following year. There are no family rates. Fees are for individual skaters. This fee is paid once per registration cycle. There is no pro-rated membership fee for skaters registering later in the season.  All participants are also required to pay the annual Safe Sport fee ($3.00). If you paid the Skate Canada membership fee and Safe Sport fees for the fall session, you would not repay these for the winter session. Only pay once September to August.

I don't have a Skate Canada #. How do I get one? Do I need one before registering for a class?

No problem! Please pay the Skate Canada membership fee (indicated on the registration form) and our Club Registrar will register your skater with Skate Canada. If you can't find your # from last year don't worry, we can look that up.

Will you hold a spot for me?

Classes tend to fill up. Completed registration forms and payment are required in order to secure a spot in our classes.

Does my skater need to wear a helmet?

All skaters participating in the PreCanSkate, CanSkate, AdultPower and the Jr. Learn-To-Figure programs require a CSA approved hockey helmet. All skaters in the PrePower and CanPower programs require a CSA approved hockey helmet with face mask. No exceptions. Skaters in the AdultSkate and Learn-to-Figure program skating below a CanSkate Stage 5 level require helmets.

Helmets must be CSA approved. Bike/skateboarding and snowsport helmets will not be accepted.

Can my skater use an ice skating assist (pusher) or skateez skating aids during lessons or other club programming?

No, these aids are not permitted on the ice during any of our programs. We believe in teaching skaters  to learn to skate without these aids. From our experience these can promote poor skating technique , create safety hazards and significantly delay skaters' progress. 

Do you have skates/helmets available to borrow or rent during lesson times?

No, skaters are responsible for providing their own equipment. We recommend purchasing skates from United Cycle as they sell good quality equipment and their staff are well trained on how to fit the equipment they sell.  They tend to have a good selection of new and quality used skates.

What should my skater wear to lessons?

It can be cold in the rink! It is important to dress in warm layers that still allow for a full range of movement.  Remember if your skater is in the PreCanSkate program or new to skating they will likely spend some time down on the ice surface, especially the first few classes as they learn to get up on their own. It is important that these skaters wear something that will keep them warm and dry on the ice. Remember to avoid items that can become tripping hazards such as long scarves and snow pants that are too long and drop below the boot of the skate. Don't forget to wear mitts!

Will you have another session after this one?

We offer 3 sessions per year, Fall (usually divided into Fall # 1 & 2) September-December, Winter (January-March) and Spring (April-May). We do not offer any programming over the summer months (June-August).
