The board of directors of the Zorra Skating Club would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our skating club. Our club belongs to Skate Ontario which is a section of Skate Canada. We offer CanSkate which is a learn to skate program designed by Skate Canada. It is followed by StarSkate which is another Skate Canada program.
The CanSkate badge program leads skaters through the various skills they require to become competent skaters. There are 6 stages within the Canskate Program. Our program is taught by qualified, paid, professional Skate Canada Coaches with the help of our volunteer program assistants. Our CanSkate program has been evaluated by Skate Canada and received very high praise. Parents enroll their children in CanSkate for a variety of reasons. Some will see their skater choosing to continue advancing their skills in our StarSkate program. Others wish their skaters to develop strong skating skills before moving to a different skating sport such as hockey or ringette. Some parents just want their skaters to be able to skate well enough to truly enjoy skating at the recreational level.
The Zorra Skating Club is a not for profit organization run by volunteers who work very hard to provide excellent programming at a reasonable cost. Some fundraising is required as registration fees do not cover all costs. In this booklet, we have provided not only information about skating, but have also included information about topics such as programs, our professional coaches and testing.
The Zorra Skating Club Board hopes that your skater(s) will have lots of fun as they become more competent and confident on their skates. If you have any questions about our program or club, please contact anyone on our board of directors or our coaching staff.
The Zorra Skating Club’s mission is to provide quality training in a fun, safe environment so that each skater can achieve his or her own goals and develop their skills to their maximum potential through excellence in coaching, team spirit and a family atmosphere.
To keep the sport as affordable as possible for families.
To help all of our skaters achieve regardless of their level or ability.
To provide a friendly, harmonious, family environment.
