Role Models, Leaders, Supporters
Our volunteers and program assistants are invaluable members of our club. They are responsible for assisting the coaches in teaching and in many aspects of the CanSkate program. Having their help on the ice ensures that we can maintain a 1:10 or lower coach/program assistant-to-skater ratio. This ratio guarantees the best and safest delivery of our CanSkate program by allowing more personalized support leading to greater skater success and quicker progression. All of our volunteers and program assistants have been trained by a member of our professional coaching staff.
