My child wants to take Power skating lessons, how can I tell if they are ready?
In order to progress into our Prepower lessons your child will need to have passed Canskate level 2. If you child has not taken Learn to Skate classes but has played hockey within the minor hockey system then we would generally say that they will have needed to have completed a season of TimBits. If your child’s skating skills are not strong enough to keep up with the pace of the Prepower classes they will be moved to a Canskate class to work on the skating fundamentals. Coaches are always evaluating to allow for the skaters to advance into the next levels of skating.
My child has never played hockey can they take a Power Skating lesson?
YES. They will need to have passed Canskate level 2 in order to take part. Full hockey equipment is needed to take the class. Please click HERE for the Power skating equipment list.
Will the skaters be split into groups like the Canskate program?
While the skaters are split into groups they are only to perform drills and not by ability, like the Canskate program. We will do drills as a group so that the entire ice surface is used.
I now have a scheduling conflict can I get a refund?
Prior to 48 hours before the start of a Program, refunds are issued for the full amount of the registration. Within 48 hours of the start of a Program, a non-transferable FAMILY credit will be issued for unused time, less an administration fee of $35.00.
After a Program has started refunds are only issued in the event of an emergency situation/injury, which limits the participation within a program. A Doctors note will be required. Please contact the office immediately.
All credit notes will expire 1 year after the date of issue.
