Precan & Parents and Tots

With the use of interactive games and activities, we encourage young skaters to become comfortable on the ice.  

Children in the Parent & Tot program will be taught to stand on their own, fall down and get back up on their own and basic forward skating skills.

Children in PreCan Skate learn additional skills such as stopping and skating backwards.

All lessons are taught in a group lesson format and are 30 minutes in length.
