Group skating lessons - Summer session

All group courses have been developed by Skate Canada, the national body for the promotion of the activities of figure skating in Canada.

This summer we offer a 4-week and an 8-week program. The age requirement is between 5 and 12 years old, but we will take younger skaters provided they have passed Pre-CanSkate (and obtained a ribbon) or are able to stand on the ice without assistance and follow a group lesson. Walkers are not allowed on summer ice.

For each stage passed, the participant receive a badge as a reward. Places are limited in each program. For all group programs, a parent or a responsible adult must remain in the bleachers to encourage participants and in case of emergency or necessity. We recommend to wear warm clothes. The club uniform is not mandatory for newly registered skaters during summer season. Except for the skaters who have received Badge 5, helmets approved by CSA with face guards, and gloves/mitts are mandatory for all the skaters in group classes.

If our group classes are unsuitable for some reason, such as: schedule, age or other, you can opt for private lessons or semi-private lessons. You select a regular ice session with the club and you hire a certified coach. Visit the Private Lessons section for more information.

Learn more about CanSkate and the different skills required in each stage.

The Côte St. Luc arena is now closed for planned renovations. Our group sessions for late spring and summer have been relocated to the Ed Meagher Arena at Concordia University's Loyola Campus. 

 

Registration opens May 1st, 2019.
