 What We Offer



The Athabasca Skating Club adheres to Skate Canada's CanSkate program.  We combine ready-made circuits with our own themes and Fun Zones  Each group stays at a station for 10-12 minutes.  

PreCanSkate is an introductory class for pre-schoolers.



Skills, Tests, Achievement, Recognition

This class offers opportunities for skaters to develop figure skating in the areas of ice dance, free skate, skating skills, and interpretive skating.

PreSTARSkate is the intermediary class between CanSkate and STARSkate.  Skaters in CanSkate Level 5 may pursue this option to transition into STARSkate.


Skills, techniques, and conditioning are the basis of this program. This class focuses on balance, power, agility, speed and endurance which is especially important for hockey and ringette players.

Powerskate provides an alternative to figure skating and is an excellent complement for athletes playing on hockey or ringette teams, as well as figure skaters.

This program is geared to skaters aged 6 and up. Participants must already have basic forward and backward skating skills (they must be able to skate the length of the rink using alternative strides). Must be able to stop on command without use of the boards. All skaters must wear a CSA approved helmet, hockey skates and gloves.


Recreational/Adult Skate

This class is designed for teens and adults who are new to skating or are returning to the ice after time away.  The class is run in a small group and semi-private format, giving skaters a mix of independent practice and coach guidance. Skaters progress through the CanSkate program while being with their peers and keeping with the Active for Life philosophy.  Class can be taken wearing figure or hockey skates.  Skaters are required to wear a CSA approved hockey helmet until completion of CanSkate Stage 5.
