If you have a child who wants to Learn to Skate – Dieppe, Moncton and Riverview and have fun at the same time, the Codiac Cyclone “LTS” program will prove to be one of the best and fun ice experiences for your child.
When and Where : The Codiac Cyclones Speed skating Club provides learn to skate lessons at the AJL Arena in Dieppe for children who are just starting out. Refer to the calendar for schedule.
These sessions are offered by a dedicated coach with parent volunteers from the club and the assistance of club skaters.Young skaters are taught basic skating skills that they can apply to hockey, figure skating and naturally speed skating.
We ask that all participants have the following equipment:
- A helmet (hockey, skateboarding, bicycle or speed skating)
- Knee pads (volleyball or hockey pads)
- Gloves or mitts
- Cut proof neck guard
- Skates (hockey, figure skates or contact us for speed skates)
Some children respond better when their parents are on the ice…some when their parents are not there! We ask that parents be out on the ice with their child if they can’t stand up by themselves “Just to make it as much fun as possible”. We leave it up to each family to determine what is best for their skater.
