Skate Martensville – Catch the Spirit Skate Martensville is an association dedicated to the principles of enabling individuals to participate in skating for fun, fitness and/or achievement. Our organization is a registered member with Skate Canada and Skate Canada – Saskatchewan, our National and Provincial governing bodies. We have a Pre-CanSkate, CanSkate and STARSkate (Skills, Tests, Achievement, Recognition) program. CanSkate is Skate Canada’s learn-to-skate program, designed for beginners of all ages. The CanSkate program focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. CanSkate participants earn ribbons, badges and other incentives as they learn fundamental skating skills. CanSkate lessons are given in a group format led by our NCCP certified coaching staff using teaching aids, music and activities that create a fun environment and promote learning. We also offer CanHockey which is CanSkate but the children get to dress in their hockey equipment and wear their favorite team’s jersey. A PreCanSkate program is available for skaters age 3-4 with no skating experience. STARSkate has been the mainstay of figure skating in Canada for more than four decades. The STARSkate program is for those more advanced skaters wanting to move into figure skating. Skate Canada’s STARSkate program offers opportunities for skaters to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating. STARSkate lessons are led by our NCCP certified coaching staff and are offered in group and/or private lesson format.
