CanSkate Badges and Ribbons


The Skate Canada learn to skate program, CanSkate, uses many motivational resources to help new skaters learn and achieve. Skaters progress at their own rate and coaches make sessions active using teaching aids, upbeat music and a wide variety of activities that create a motivational environment and promote learning. Badges, ribbons and other incentives are used to benchmark skaters’ progress and reward effort and participation.

The CanSkate program focusses on three main areas in a skaters development:

  • Balance
  • Control
  • Agility

At each level skaters work on specific skills in those areas and when completed successfully earn a ribbon. When a skater receives all three ribbons they will completely their final badge!

At the Canadian Ice Academy we are pleased to be able to offer our CanSkater’s the opportunity to work through the Skate Canada ribbon and badge system and achieve their goals!
