  • After the huge demand for our sold out​ Sparty Learn 2 Skate Program run as part of our weekly skill development programs during the 2017-2018 season, we are excited to provide this experience to even more skaters in a week-long camp setting during the Summer of 2018!
  • A terrific way to begin learning how to skate, or to get some extra skating development before joining a summer hockey camp.
  • The Sparty Learn 2 Skate Camp features:
    • Qualified skating instructors with the expertise needed to coach your child through the program’s six levels
      • Level Six progresses all the way to two-foot side stops and crossovers
        • See below for a full breakdown of the program's levels.
      • Level One starts with falling down & getting up, balancing on two feet, turning on the spot, and skating forwards (walking)
  • Each participant will receive a Sparty Certificate at the completion of the session to celebrate the new skills that they have learned.
  • 50 minutes per class (plus an off-ice warm up).
  • Each player will receive instruction that will increase their confidence on the ice and their enjoyment of skating.
  • Our lesson plans are designed to be FUN for all participants and feature great instructor-to-participant ratios in order to ensure proper support for all skaters.
  • Register for the Sparty Learn 2 Skate Camp

Please note that we will have at least one bilingual instructor with each camp group at the Richcraft Sensplex to accommodate all participants.

 


 Levels

If your child is finishing up with our current learn to skate program or a similar program elsewhere, it's time to think about moving them to the next level. There are six levels to achieve in the Sparty Learn 2 Skate program. These levels are outlined below. Once a child graduates from, or reaches the upper levels of the Sparty Learn 2 Skate program, they are encouraged to take the next step which is to join the Ottawa Senators Intro 2 Hockey Camp, which takes place at the Bell Sensplex & Richcraft Sensplex. The Intro 2 Hockey program is quite simply the best way to introduce little ones to the world's greatest game!
