 Learn To Skate Programs

 

This is where skaters have the opportunity to develop a life-long interest in the sport. CANSkate serves as a feeder into the STARSkate & Competitive Program; however, it is also ideal as a means of preparing skaters for hockey, ringette, speed skating and even pleasure skating. Teen and Adult sessions are for those that also wish to learn the sport or improve on their skills without having to skate on the same session as the little children.

All programs have 3 different sessions that run throughout the year with the option to sign up for all 3 sessions at once;

Fall Season:        September15 - October 30, 2020
Winter Season:   November 3 - December 18, 2020     March 3 - April 1, 2021
Spring Season:   April 6 - May 30, 2021 - No Skating Sun May 23, 2021
 
All seasons are dependent on colour zone of Durham Region and the Town of Ajax!! Please check each Session separately to see what is running.
 

Ajax Skating club is proud to have all its programs taught by trained and NCCP-certified professional coaches, who are assisted by trained Program Assistants. Our coaches are very focused on proper technique and will devote time to the details of skating, to develop skaters' agility, balance and control.
