Skating Programs

All of the following skating programs are offered in Ajax on Sunday afternoons:

  • Learn to Skate - This is the typically the start for most skaters, many who have advanced to (competitive) figure skating or speed skating programs with approval by the head coach of either program. Also, some athletes skate with a family member in a recreational skating style with support from on-ice coaches for recreation and fitness. Registered athletes of all ages and abilities are welcome to enroll in the Learn to Skate Program
  • Figure Skating - This is a competitive skating program where programs are developed for the level appropriate to the skaters ability. Enrollment of registered athletes is approved only after an an assessment of skating skills by the head coach
  • Speed Skating - This is a competitive skating program where a minimum level of skating ability is required. Enrollment of registered athletes is approved only after an an assessment of skating skills by the head coach

Enrollment of registered athletes for all skating programs is available online beginning Sept 1 (programs start after that date, depending on the program). Returning athletes are welcome to enroll in the program that they were enrolled in last season. New (registered) athletes should enroll in the Learn To Skate program for a skills assessment and meeting with the head coach of the competitive program that they would like to enroll in before enrollment will be approved. Note that any enrollment after the end of the season (i.e. after May until Aug 31) is not for the next season - you must wait until Sept 1 to enroll online for the next season.
