First-Day PreCanSkate and CanSkate Checklist

Thank you for choosing Silver Blades! We are looking forward to having your child take skating lessons with us. Here is a reminder about essential on-ice items: 

  • Skaters must wear a CSA-approved hockey helmet—any other type of helmet is not sufficient
  • Skaters must wear gloves or mittens
  • Sharpened skates* (hockey skates or figure skates are equally fine at the CanSkate levels)

All of these items are required to be allowed on the ice. And water-resistant bottoms such as snowpants are highly recommended for at least the first few sessions of PreCanSkate. Please come prepared!

Before the first class, please allow yourself 15 minutes to arrive, obtain your child's name badge, and get ready for the session. 

A reminder about our refund policy: 

Fall/Winter season: A $50 administration fee will be charged for cancellations before the start of the season. Cancellations up to, and including, Thanksgiving Monday of any given year will be prorated by the number of sessions to date, plus a $50 administration fee will be charged. The balance will be refunded. After Thanksgiving Monday, no refunds will be issued without a medical certificate. Requests for refunds must be made to the Silver Blades Board of Directors in writing (info@silverblades.ca). There are no make-up classes for sessions missed, no matter what the reason.

Spring season: A $20 administration fee will be charged for cancellations before the start of the season. No changes to registration will be awarded once the Spring season has started. No refunds will be issued without a medical certificate once sessions start. Request for refund must be made to the Silver Blades Board of Directors in writing (info@silverblades.ca), and will be prorated by the number of sessions skated to date plus a $15 administration fee. There are no make-up classes for sessions missed, no matter what the reason.
