CanSkate and CanPowerSkate are back!
The Brant Skating Club is pleased to announce that in addition to our Star 1 to Senior Competitive programs, CanSkate and CanPowerSkate are back for Fall sessions, starting September 8th.
All sessions will be at the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE *Only children that are Stage 2 or higher may register at this time. Your skater must be able to stand up and skate on their own without holding hands.*
Registration will be online ONLY.
At this time we are still limited to numbers in the rink. In order to make our CanSkate and CanPowerSkate sessions cost effective we have opted to not allow spectators at this time. This may change in time, but it is a hard rule right now.
We will have a dedicated group of Program Assistants, Coaches and a board member to walk in with the children, and get them on the ice. They will then bring the children back out to the parents in the parking lot. The students will be in groups of (up to) 6 with 1 PA, the same PA for all 8 sessions. There will be 2 Skate Canada coaches on the ice as well.
Skaters must come dressed for the session, with Skates and guards on.
We cannot have a Learn to Skate program at this time.
If you would like to sign up for the 4 week, 8 session Fall CanSkate, you will pick either session Group 1 or session Group 2 and you can only bring your child to that session.
There cannot be mixing sessions, or make up sessions.
The CanSkate classes will run twice a week, Either Wednesday/Saturday or Thursday/Saturday. The CanPowerSkate will run Tuesday/ Thursday evenings.
Thank you for your patience as we navigate back to safely running our programs.
From time to time throughout our figure skating season, the City of Brantford Parks and Recreation Department may require Lion's Park. Lost ice dates are posted on the Calendar.
Skating fees have been adjusted to compensate for lost ice. *Monday ice losses (holidays) and Saturday ice losses (Hockey Tournaments) can be made up on another session. Please speak to the Director of your program or Coach to schedule a make-up day for lost ice.*
Skate Canada places the highest priority on a safe and fun learning environment for all of its participants.
Several programs are planned for roll-out in the coming years based on Skate Canada’s Safe Sport Framework. These programs will facilitate best-in-class safety initiatives. It is Skate Canada’s goal and commitment to be the leading Safe Sport organization in Canada and the World.
