YRSA offers the following programs - Winter 2019 Registration Now Open!
Pre Canskate (Fall, Winter, Spring) - A great introduction for 3-year old children to experience standing on ice for the first time and learning to balance, glide, and jump in a safe, fun filled program accompanied with toys, bubbles and background skating music. Ribbons are given out to skaters who complete the skills for Pre Canskate.
Canskate (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer) - A program for children ages 3 and older where the focus is on ice skating skills, filled with challenge and fun. After 30 minutes of group lesson, we then have a fully supervised 'Playtime' for all with hockey (with plastic hockey sticks and plastic colored balls), or skating around the ice to practice skills or chase bubbles. Then comes clean up time and then cool time with a leading coach and music. Report cards are given out at the end of each session. Badge cards are continually given out throughout the program -- as soon as a skater passes a level, they are awarded the badge and are moved to a higher skill level group.
STARSkate (Fall, Winter, Spring) - A program for skaters who have passed Stage 5 and are ready to learn dancing, freestyle, ice skills and turns. Our program is group instruction, with the last 10 minutes for 'free time' where skaters practice what they learn each day. This program is a fully recreational one for those skaters who complete Canskate and want to continue ice skating, but without the pressure of competitions.
Teen/Adult (Fall, Winter, Spring) - Our fully qualified, patient instructors provide you with the confidence to skate on your own. You will learn how to skate with full strides and then learn turns and stopping.
Lessons are on Olympic size ice pad at Ed Sackfield Arena (311 Valleymede Drive, Richmond Hill). The club is dedicated to promote and develop skating in the York Region's Richmond Hill and surrounding areas.
Sanctioned by Skate Canada - all skaters are registered with Skate Canada
Instructions are provided by NCCP certified coaches - all are members of Skate Canada
