Exciting news - Canskate just got better!!
Skate Canada has developed a new CanSkate program based on Sport Canada's Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) principles. Exciting new features include a fresh new look, new awards, great tools for coaches and most importantly a tested and proven new curriculum and delivery methods that guarantee skater success in developing stronger basic skills and developing them faster. But there's more! The new program also includes specific skills that pertain to hockey, ringette, speed skating and figure skating. The result is a dynamic new program that prepares all skaters for virtually every ice sport. Skater progress is monitored and documented and badges are awarded when specific skills are mastered. Instruction is provided by both program assistants and NCCP certified coaches.
Adult skating is growing in popularity across the country and the Northern BC Centre for Skating is pleased to announce this additional programming in Prince George.
AdultSkate is presented in a similar format to the new CanSkate Program. Classes are self paced, allowing participants to learn and progress in a recreational and social environment.
Skate Canada is currently expanding its programming in this area and the Centre looks forward to continuing to build on its mandate of providing safe, high quality options for the entire population.
