POWER SKATING

Skating is the most fundamental skill required to play hockey or ringette. Our Twin City Hockey Skating School offers power skating programs throughout the year at various rinks in the Kitchener-Waterloo region.

FIGURE SKATING

The Kitchener-Waterloo Skating Club is one of Canada's leading figure skating training centres. We offer singles, pairs, dance, and synchronized skating programs for beginners through to elite athletes. The introductory level for all figure skating programs is the STARSkate program, which typically begins after basic skating skills are mastered in the CanSkate program. 

Skaters with the desire and abilities to participate in our competitive programs enjoy a world-class training facility with excellent professional coaches, a dedicated figure skating ice pad, an athletics centre, personal trainers, as well as dance and pilates studios.

Learn more about our figure skating programs including STARSkate, competitive singles, ice dance pairs, freeskate pairs, and synchronized skating.
