Learn to Skate | Ages 3-12

The Kids Learn to Skate Program is designed for children with skating ability ranging from no experience to beginner skaters. This program offers small group lessons, and children will be grouped based on skating level to facilitate instruction. Through fun games and activities, qualified instructors will encourage your child to skate and build your child's confidence. We recommend that participants practice between classes. Safety pads are recommended and CSA approved hockey helmets are mandatory. Attendance at the first lesson is very important as we determine skating groups and give details to parents.

Learn Rock Climbing | Ages 6-8

Rock Climbing offers a unique environment for children to explore and become more aware of how their bodies move on the rock wall as they are grouped with others of similar skill level. Climbers will focus on bouldering to build self-confidence as they begin to understand ‘rock holds’. After conquering bouldering, climbers will progress to harnessing and move to top rope climbing. Participants will be inspired to set goals and develop teamwork skills as they learn proper safety & rock climbing techniques. All equipment is provided.
