This class is designed for skaters between the ages of 6 and 11 that wish to “fast track” into the sport of figure skating. The Fundamental Movements continue to be instructed, but with a focus on figure skating. It is recommended that skaters should have passed Stage 4 of the CanSkate program to participate in this program, however the Director of Skating may make exceptions. Classes are 45 minutes in length and figure skates are required.
The program focuses on development of six fundamental movements organized in six stages of learning. Once the skills on each stage are mastered, a badge is awarded.
Stage 1 – Balance
Stage 2 – Glide Forward
Stage 3 – Glide Backward
Stage 4 – Edges
Stage 5 – Power
Stage 6 – Speed
Fast Trackers must wear a fitted CSA approved hockey helmet, gloves/mittens, layered clothes that allow for freedom of movement and properly fitted skates. Parents must remain in the building during your child’s lesson.
NOTE: Skates, CSA Approved Helmet, Gloves and warm clothing are required. (Due to SkateCanada regulations and insurance coverage skaters without helmets will not be permitted on the ice, parents are not allowed to accompany skaters on the ice)
