1. 2017-18 Learn to Skate - Sat, 9:15 Cody Banks
The Learn to Skate Program is aimed at skaters 4 to 8 years old who are just learning to skate or who want to improve their basic skating skills. Some will take their first steps on the ice with us, while others are already mobile and ready for more skill development. The goal is to provide children with a fun and entertaining environment in which to learn skating skills that can be used in any skating sport. Many go on to hockey, ringette and figure skating, as well as to speed skating.  We use lots of games and fun. If they don’t enjoy being on the ice, they won’t come back.  We also give these young skaters a couple of opportunities to test their speed during the year at our Fun Meets.   Skaters in the Learn to Skate Program wear hockey skates.  Please, no figure skates.   Skaters may be moved to a more advanced group after enrolment or during the year if the coaching staff feels it is appropriate, but only with parents’ agreement. Learn to skate participants must be able to stand alone, fall, get up and move around on their skates, or a parent or friend (with skates and helmet) must come on the ice with the skater until they are able to do so.  Minimum age: 4 years old.  Saturday AM, 9:15 - 10:00 at Cody Banks Arena.

Learn to Speed Skate 2 is aimed at returning Learn to Speed Skate skaters who are interested in the sport of speed skating and who have exhibited the maturity and readiness to progress with their speed skating skill development. Skaters may participate in this program based on coach recommendation and the use of long blades is required.  LTSS 2 members will skate with the regular LTSS group on Monday evenings, plus additional smaller group sessions on Saturday afternoons. The Saturday schedule will be intermittent, depending on icetime availability. We expect approximately 10 Saturday sessions per season.  We recommend that group members participate in Club Fun Meets, the Atlantic Cup in Charlottetown, and, if they desire, off-Island meets. Parents should speak with the coach before registering for off-Island meets to determine if the meet is appropriate and to ensure that appropriate coaching arrangements can be made.

8. 2017-18 Intermediate Speed Skating The Intermediate Speed Skating program introduces more of the competitive aspects of speed skating, such as passing and tactics, and aims to refine the basic speed skating skills of less experienced skaters.  Skaters should be 9 years of age, be able to skate cross-overs on the corners, stop effectively, understand track safety, and be able to skate the 400 M in under 1:20 (or have the permission of the coach). First year Intermediate skaters will skate with the Learn to Speed Skate 2 group on Saturdays. Skaters in this group must be on long blades. The more advanced skaters in the Intermediate group will normally skate the 400m in under 1:00 and will continue to refine their technical skills and begin learning to develop racing strategies.  Intermediate skaters may participate in dryland training programs when offered.  Skaters in this group are eligible to participate in all meets.  Skaters should be at practices at least 30 minutes beforehand for an off-ice warm-up, unless otherwise specified by the coaching staff.
Note: First year Intermediate skaters skate with the Learn to Speed Skate 2 group on Saturdays, from 3:45 to 4:45 pm, instead of at the 2:30 to 3:30 pm time.

92. 2017-18 Recreational (13+ years, youth)

Speed Skate PEI recognizes that some skaters like to skate but are not (or are no longer) interested in competing. We offer recreational skating opportunities for skaters 13 years of age and up within our other skating groups based on the recreational skater’s age and ability. These recreational skaters will be registered with Speed Skating Canada as “participant” skaters and will not be eligible to participate in sanctioned meets. They may participate in local Fun Meets. All recreational skaters must use long blades and have full protective equipment.  Skaters who wish to register in the recreational program will receive two hours of ice time per week, with times and group(s) to be determined by the coaching staff in consultation with the skater / parents.
