Promoting Adult Skating in Your Club

We've had a number of inquiries about starting up adult skating in our clubs. Here's a document prepared by Skate Canada that might help.

Adult Skating Programs


Adult skating is growing in popularity and more and more clubs are offering recreational, test and competitive opportunities to this segment of the population.
AdultSkate

Adults participate in CanSkate, STARSkate and CanPowerSkate programs as well as on Synchronized Skating teams. Adult championships currently provide opportunities to adult skaters to experience the challenge of a competition in a fun, social environment. Skate Canada is currently expanding its programming in this area.

Although adult-only sessions are ideal, many clubs share ice among programs very successfully. Here are some ideas to consider:

  • Adult Learn-to-Skate with CanSkate, Preschool CanSkate
  • Adult Primary STARSkate with CanSkate
  • Adult STARSkate with STARSkate
  • Adult Synchro

WO Clubs Offering Adult Sessions

Contact your local skating club for Adult sessions being offered.
