What is CanPowerSkate Pre-Power?

CanPowerSkate’s Pre-Power is designed for young skaters, at least 4 years of age who have passed Badge Level 2 of Canskate.
Pre-Power helps develop basic skating abilities in a power skating-specific environment, including balance skills, forward and backward skating, stopping, turning and agility skills. The curriculum is presented in three progressive levels complete with its own awards to encourage participation and motivate skaters. Pre-Power has been designed to run concurrently with CanSkate sessions.

What are the benefits of Participating in CanPowerSkate?

CanPowerSkate is the only nationally regulated power skating program in Canada. It was developed by a team of hockey, figure skating and ringette experts to teach the fundamentals of power skating in a progressive and sequential manner. When you/your child registers for a CanPowerSkate program at your local Skate Canada club, you also become a member of Skate Canada, the national sport governing body for figure skating in Canada. Membership benefits in the CanPowerSkate program can include:

• participation in a unique skill testing system which includes award bars and ribbons
• parent information sheets
• progress updates and report cards
• special CanPowerSkate events and club functions
• opportunity to be talent-scouted
• opportunity to participate in a healthy lifestyle activity

All participants must:

• wear a proper fitting CSA approved hockey helmet. No bike helmets permitted. THIS IS A MANDATORY REQUIREMENT.
• wear warm clothing which allows ease of movement.
• have proper fitting skates.
