This prepares candidates with a base level of knowledge leading into the course. The three-day CanSkate course introduces participants to the basics of coaching, which includes an introduction to Long Term Athlete Development, Teaching and Learning, Communication, Biomechanics, and all components of the CanSkate program.  Throughout this course, candidates will partake in an interactive learning environment and will reflect on their experiences as a skater and how they can transition into a coach role. Based on the following learning objectives, the CanSkate course will prepare coaches to:
