Program Assistant (PA) Clinic

September 22, 2018

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

The Program Assistants learned how the CanSkate sessions are set up with Skate Canada Program Skills and Circuits, energetic warm-ups and cool-downs, fun music and cues for changing groups, and picked up tips on how to help new skaters and skating families. Now they are all ready and looking forward to helping out in this season's CanSkate program!
