Skating and Hockey Programs
Never been on skates before? Has it been too long? Terrified of falling? In small groups, you will learn at your own pace. Focus is on balance, falling down and getting up, moving forwards, gliding, and building confidence.
Once you can glide, snowplow stop, and walk backwards, this level 2 class will introduce fundamental skating skills such as one-foot glides, edges, side stops, and backwards c-cuts, as well as introducing intermediate skills such as crossovers and tight turns.
For those wanting to improve their backwards skating and edges, and learn crossovers, pivot turns, tight turns and other advanced skills.
All levels of figure skaters are welcome to join us at the Olympic Oval for relaxed, friendly, and fun ice times this semester. Come as little or often as you like. A sound system is available, and coaches are welcome provided they register (no fee) with the program coordinator.
From beginner to advanced, we have a variety of co-ed power skating and hockey skills classes to choose from. Our physical literacy approach will increase your confidence on the ice, and you will learn or improve all the basic skills to fully enjoy the game of hockey.
In these power skating and hockey skills classes we will focus on fundamental skating skills, from stopping to crossovers, and help you develop good habits to help you improve your hockey game. The higher levels will include strength, conditioning and stamina components, as well as more advanced skating skills. The hockey skills will teach individual and team puck skills, full ice drills, and fun, non-contact scrimmages.
Choose from level 1, 2 or 2/3!
Please register for the appropriate level for you as opposed to the ice schedule.
