Registration opens on our website for the January Short Learn to Skate on Thursday December 31, 2020. Space is limited to 15 skaters. Due to Covid-19, lessons will be held outside at the Clarence Downey Speed Skating Oval on Wednesdays from 4:30 - 5:00pm for 8 weeks.
Due to Covid-19, this program will be excellent for skaters looking to increase their confidence on the ice. Skaters must not need any assistance on the ice to stand, fall down & get back up or need help skating forward. Coaches cannot physically assist or get close to help skaters.
Lessons begin on Wednesday January 6, 2021 and end Wednesday February 24, 2021.  Cost is $85. Required equipment: skates of any type, helmet (no bike helmets), padded gloves. Knee pads are recommended.
Skaters are asked to arrive fully dressed and with skates on. Although there is a warm-up building on site, it is limited to 15 people, total. This does not accommodate up to 30 skaters/parents to prepare for ice-time.
Lessons will be cancelled if, at 1 hour before the start of the lesson, conditions as listed on the Environment Canada Weather Office indicate the temperature with the windchill is -25 or colder. It is each parent's responsibility to check the weather 1 hour before each lesson.
Non-medical grade masks are required for all skaters and parents at the Clarence Downey Speed Skating Oval - both on and off the ice. Spectators are limited to 15. One parent/guardian per skater is permitted.

Skaters are segregated on the ice into smaller groups according to skill level. This is to ensure that there is a good ratio of coaches to skaters. It also allows skaters to move to higher levels of training when they are ready as individuals. There are extra "on-ice helpers" from the senior level in each of the groups to help provide kids with individual attention.

Should your child wish to continue with the club, part of the SLTS Fee can be credited to your program fee.
