Learn to Skate and Figure Skating - Jan 2018

Please note all regularly scheduled sessions resume on Monday, 8th January (figure skating and CanSkate)

Sorry. Registration for CanSkate is Full.
We will be running CanSkate again in the Spring with registrations starting in April.

NEW PROGRAM: Parent and Tot

This is a 50-minute introduction to skating program lead by a NCCP certified coach and sessions are held on the small, less intimidating Studio ice surface so it's ideal for younger skaters. This format provides the skater the opportunity to begin learning the basics of skating with the comfort of having their parent/guardian at their side (must be the same parent each week due to Skate Canada insurance fees).

Sessions are Friday morning at 10:15AM. Price is $200 ($164.30 + 35.70) for 10 sessions starting February 2.

Both participants, skater and guardian must wear a CSA hockey helmet. Skaters receive ongoing incentives and a report card at the end. It is recommended that skaters are at least 2 years of age.

To register, you must first create an account for the parent who will be attending and then use "Add Family Member" to create an associated account to register your skater.

Go to Minto Registration to begin.

NEW PROGRAM: Intro to Hockey

Starting January 28th, we're introducing a new program for skaters who have reached some proficiency with skating and want to start learning or improve their hockey skills.

This new program is run in partnership with APEX Skating and runs for just seven weeks on Sunday morning on the Studio ice surface.

See Intro to Hockey for more details.

Registration is through our standard registration system.

NEW OFF-ICE PROGRAM: Ballet

Capital City Dance will be running figure skating specific ballet classes on Mondays in the Ballet room at 5:00 and 6:00 PM. The program runs for 10 weeks starting on February 5. This program is not part of the standard off-ice program provided by the club so there is an additional $100 fee for this program.

For more information, see Ballet Program.

Registration is through our registration system.

Parent Information Session - Koncium Mental Training

How can I support my child/student-athlete with their mental game?

Does your youth-athlete ever perform to lesser capacity than they are capable of? Does stress, anxiety, and negative emotions cause them to worry, panic, or even fear stepping on the ice? Do they ever struggle to believe in themselves, to refocus, or to remain positive?

This parent info-session will provide you with the knowledge you need to recognize how mental training and sport psychology can benefit both your youth-athlete’s performance, and their overall well-being in sport and beyond. You will learn how athletes can utilize one-to-one mental training to optimize their skill development and why adding a sport psychology consultant to your child’s support team is truly a long-term investment!

In addition to an overview of mental training, also included will be tips for supporting competitive youth-athletes, strategies on how to debrief performances, and how and why even a small amount of performance anxiety can keep us from performing to our potential.
