You will be taught the fundamental skills of skating in a progressive and sequential manner that can be applied to any skating sport or simply to enjoy a skate along the Rideau Canal. We will focus on balance, stopping, and turning. As your skating improves, we will progress with backwards skating as well as introduce techniques to enhance speed and agility. It’s never too late to learn how to skate. This program is designed to teach adults of all ages the skills necessary to enjoy skating! For your safety, HELMETS ARE MANDATORY and must be supplied by the participant. Please bring your own skates.
