 CanPowerSkate for Hockey and Ringette Players 


CanPowerSkate Frequently Asked Questions 

I don’t know my game/competition schedule, and the program is about to start. Is there a NO RISK option for enrolling in CanPowerSkate, until the game schedule is posted?

YES! Renew your Skate Canada membership before the first session, and guest skate on up to 4 sessions at a per-session fee of $20 (Session A/B) or $25 (Session C). Enroll for the full program before the beginning of the 5th session, and the full value of guest skate fees will be applied in full toward the CanPower program fee. Contact the office to register.

I want to join the program after session start date. Can I do this?

YES! Pro-rated fees are in effect for the first five weeks.

Due to testing requirements, skaters entering the program after the 5th week will not be ready for end-of-program testing. That doesn’t mean you can’t still learn with us! Guest skate on up to 4 sessions at the END of the program (excluding test days) at a per-session fee of $20, plus Skate Canada membership fee. Contact the office to register.

Can my skater get private skating lessons to help improve on problem techniques?

YES!  Power Skaters may opt to purchase lessons with a private coach, by guest skating on the Friday OPEN session through fall/winter, for a fee of $13/per half hour, plus private lesson fees paid directly to your coach. Check your coach’s availability before registering for this option.

My child is ready to learn to skate, and wants to start playing hockey as well. Can I sign up for this program?

CanPowerSkate is NOT a learn to skate program. If your child does not meet the minimum skill requirements (Skaters must have basic forward and backward skating skills (be able to skate the length of the rink using alternate strides), and be able to stop on command without use of the boards), consider enrolling in our CanSkate learn to skate program. Not sure if your child qualifies? Please contact the office before registering.
