Which program is right for your child?
If your skater is not able to get up and down on their own and get around the ice in some fashion (shuffle or walk) unassisted, then please register for the PRECANSKATE program. The Precanskate program is slower pace and allows for small groups to work together. In the first few weeks the skaters may spend a lot of time sitting on the ice as we work to get everyone up and moving, but generally after 2-3 sessions you will see progress.
If you chose to put your child in the Canskate program and are not able to move around unassisted please know that the structure of the program is faster paced and requires constant movement from start to finish, so a skater that is not able to get around in some fashion on their own can become very overwhelmed and have a very bad experience. We do not have the resources for one on one attention on any program so choosing the right program certainly helps the success of your child.
Best of luck to all skaters who will be competing this weekend at the Rebecca Pack Memorial Friendship Skate in Grand Falls.
