Program Descriptions


The Canmore Skating Club expects to offer the following programs during the 2023-24 season:

  • CanSkate is Skate Canada's flagship learn-to-skate program, designed for beginners of all ages. This is a fully coached program delivered in a group format. CanSkate consists of 6 badge levels / stages and introduces specific skills that pertain to hockey, ringette, speed skating and figure skating. A CSA approved helmet for Ice Sports is required to participate in this program. The program will be offered on Mondays and Thursdays during the 2023-24 season.
  1. Minimum Skater Requirement: If this is the student’s first year on skates they must be four (4) years of age or older. Three year-olds may register if they have achieved CanSkate “Badge 1 Balance” (generally speaking, “Badge 1 Balance” means the skater can move around the ice without support and get themselves up onto their feet after a fall unassisted. You will receive a warning that the skater does not meet the age requirement when you register.)
  2. One adult must attend each class and be available in the spectator area of the arena as an off ice aide for the skater. Skate tying, guard removal, mitten and helmet putting on/off; and, bathroom visits (hopefully only before and after the class) will be done by the parent/aide.
  3. SKATE-CANADA-ASSUMPTION-OF-RISK-AND-WAIVER for the current skating season (September 1, 2023 - August 31, 2024) will be presented to you online when you register for the program. The skater's aide will also be required to sign this document.
  4. Program Content: Link to a summary of the skills covered in each of the six (6) CanSkate Stages.

CanSkate fees will be pro-rated for late registrations after the first session is completed until 14 days following the first session. These programs will be pro-rated for the missed sessions and an administrative fee of $25 will be applied.

Go to Registration -> CanSkate to register.


  • StarSkate / AdultSkate / Podium Pathway - for those who wish to continue developing their figure skating skills in a progressive and sequential manner. Skaters are responsible for hiring a club coach/es to help them set goals for their skating and further their skills. Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada Assessments through a nationally standardized system. Those who wish to challenge their figure skating skills and who show potential as competitive skaters can participate in the Podium Pathway (PP) program. Skate Canada suggests that StarSkate skaters skate 3–4 times per week. Podium Pathway skaters may increase frequency 1-2 times more per week. 


Go to Fall/Winter 2023-24 for the basic schedule.
