Our Programs

The Nanaimo Skating Club has offered skating programs in Nanaimo since 1940. Our purpose is to encourage the instruction, practice, enjoyment and advancement of its members in all aspects of skating in accordance with the rules and policies of Skate Canada for skaters of all ages and abilities. 

Our programs implement Learn-to-Skate and Competitive programs developed by Skate Canada. Our coaches and executive members provide a professional and supportive environment for individual skaters with goals in competitive skating and for all levels of skaters. 

CanSkate is Skate Canada's flagship learn-to-skate program, designed for beginners of all ages. Focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development.

CanPowerSkate is an action-packed,
high energy instructional power skating program geared to hockey and ringette skaters that focuses on balance, power, agility, speed and endurance

A continuation of the CanSkate program, providing a bridge to the STARSkate program and allowing skaters to gain competition experience.

STARSkate offers opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating.
