Magic Skate’s objective is to improve your kid’s skating abilities while having fun. Even though it’s not a hockey or a ringette program per say, it prepares the kids well to make the transition to these sports. The program is designed for 4, 5 & 6 year old kids.
Each lesson is designed to challenge and allow each skater to progress at their own pace. We use many objects and materials to help us achieve our objective. (balls, hoops, bungee cords, etc)
Coaching Ratio: We have a minimum of 1 coach per 4 skaters.
- Starts the 1st or 2nd weekend of October 2019 and ends the end of March 2020
- Schedule: we receive the schedule from the representative mid-September. We will forward it to you as soon as it is confirmed.
- 20 lessons of 60 minutes. One lesson per week.
- Dieppe Program: Normally on Saturdays at 3:00pm or
4:15pm(to be confirmed). Dates and Times are subject to change as requested by rinkmanagement.
For the safety, comfort and protection of the skaters, we ask that they have the following mandatory equipment: certified helmet with full screen, certified neck guard, elbow pads, knee pads, skates, gloves or mitts (doesn’t have to be hockey gloves).
* Although not mandatory, many skaters prefer to wear the complete equipment (hockey or ringette).
Coaches have been instructed to teach the different techniques of skating through fun drills and games. Although, we pride ourselves of having the best ratio (1 coach for 4 skaters) for this type of program, it is impossible to dedicate a coach to one particular skater for the entire lesson (1 on 1) We try to regroup the skaters according to their skill level and at times we might see a need to change some skaters to a different group. Please feel free to see us after any lesson if you have any questions or concerns.
