With the ice in

It’s time to skate

With winter just around the corner it’s that time again, time for skating.

With winter just around the corner it’s that time again, time for skating.

The ice is already in and there is no time to waste.

The Quesnel Figure Skating Club (QFSC) is offering CanSkate for kids 3 and up wanting to learn skating techniques.

This learn-to-skate program is designed for beginners and focuses on teaching young skaters to balance on the ice, glide forwards, glide backwards  and many other techniques need for hockey, ringette, speed skating and figure skating.

Coaches and assistants are there to help the aspiring skaters work through fumbles and to help them back on their feet.

Skaters progress at their own rate, with coaches and assistants using a wide variety of activities to create a fun environment to promote learning.

Many skaters in the CanSkate program move-up to figure skating.

QFSC also offers a CanPowerSkate.

CanPowerSkate focuses on the balance, power, agility, speed and endurance necessary for hockey and ringette skaters.

“All of the best skaters, figure skaters or hockey players come through this program,” skating director Wendy Berezowsky said.

CanSkate and CanPowerSkate is offered Tuesday and Thursday at the Twin Arenas.
