The Glen Cairn Skating Club invited interested skaters at least 10 years old and at the Intermediate level to come join our Program Assistant Team for CanSkate this season. 

We hosted a PA clinic on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm at Jack Charron Arena.

Because Friday's tornadoes forced the rink to close, training was held outdoors.

The Program Assistants:

*Participated in Off-ice Training
*Learned how the CanSkate sessions are set up
*Learned the Skate Canada Program Skills & Circuits 
*Followed Energetic Warm-ups & Cool-downs
*Learned about the Fun Music & Q’s for changing groups
*Learned their PA Duties
*Picked up tips on how to help NEW Skaters & Parents

Now they are all ready and looking forward to helping out in this season's CanSkate program!

Here they are in their makeshift outdoor classroom and "rink" (parking lot):

Our first Performance Ice of the season took place on Wednesday, September 19 at Bell Sensplex.

It was great to see the skaters' routines and get feedback from an evaluator.

Beautiful skating, everyone!
