Brand new blade schedule begins

Raw skating talent and desire ready for discipline and direction in Castlegar

Castlegar Skataing Club

The skating season is underway and the Castlegar Skating Club is proud to provide two nationally recognized skating programs: CanSkate and STARSkate.

The dynamic skating programs are led by certified, professional coaches Rachel Stewart and Andrea Poznikoff. Their combined experience and enthusiasm provide a solid foundation for all skating club members.

Canskate is the entry level learn-to-skate program in which children learn basic skating skills. The newly revised program provides group lessons in a fun, safe and positive environment. Sessions are kept lively and energetic through the use of teaching aides, music and a wide variety of activities. Children progress at their own rate through the CanSkate levels, earning badges and receiving progress reports. CanSkate prepares skaters for virtually all ice sports such as figure skating and hockey.  CanSkate runs every Wednesday starting October 15 until March 4, from 4:45 p.m. to 5:30 p.m..

STARSkate is an advanced program providing skaters who have completed CanSkate levels with the opportunity to further develop fundamental figure skating techniques in different disciplines. Lessons are given in group and private formats. As skaters progress they have the opportunity to take Skate Canada tests and participate in competitions, earning badges and awards in recognition for their hard work and self-discipline.

For fun and recreation or for more advanced figure skating training, the Castlegar Skating Club provides programs to meet the young skater’s needs.
