The Bridge Program 2016-2017 Brochure: CanSkate2016-17
An introduction to the StarSkate and/or the Competitive steam of figure skating. This is a fast track program for skates who have been identified as having an aptitude for figure skating.
Entrance to the program is strictly by letter of invitation, audition, or at the discretion of the Director of CanSkate – Jenny Wyant.
The program offers a 30-minutes structured group lesson, 30 minutes of practice time and/or private lesson time, and a 15 minute fitness class so skaters can improve flexibility, build strength, and help prevent injuries. Off-ice classes are a combination of stretching, dry-land jumping, and overall fitness and cardio.
It is encouraged that skaters selected to participate in the Bridge program start private lessons with one of our Skate Canada certified coaches to enhance their progression and expedite their skill acquirement.
Please contact the office at the Canadian Ice Academy to inquire about the bridge program and/or to register for your selected day/session.
Skaters participating in the bridge program are expected to wear a light sweater, athletic pants and gloves. Skaters are expected to have their hair tied back and out of their face while on the ice.
