CanSkate – Learn to Skate!

Canada’s best learn-to-skate program for all ages!

**Online Registration is Now Open – Register Early – Spaces are Limited!**

Updated September 1, 2020

As of September 1st, all skaters registered in CanSkate programming for the Fall-Winter 2020-21 Season are required to have previous experience on the ice. All  new skaters not previously registered with Skate Canada or the SRSC are subject to review by the club and coach(es) of the program at the first session.

Skaters who are registered in CanSkate who are unable to demonstrate that they can skate without assistance on the ice will not be able to remain in the program at this time due to COVID safety considerations.

If you are unsure if your skater has the correct experience check out our Pre-CanSkate (Parent-and-Tot) program or contact us before registering.

Prior to registering please read the SRSC COVID-19 Policy and Guidelines – this is required for all participants and families.
