All skaters will be grouped by their ability and previously passed levels. Each group will have a 9:1 ratio. Low ratios ensures all skaters will learn the skating skills in a fun, interactive, and high-energy way. It also provides extra time for those that need a little more help from the Coaches or Program Assistants.
Once the skaters have master the skills of the Pre-CanSkate program they will be ready to move into the CanSkate program.
