Our Program Assistants (PAs) are individuals who have been trained by a CanSkate coach to assist in the delivery of the CanSkate program. Program Assistants are usually current skaters at our club and provide valuable guidance on the ice to our younger skaters and helpful hands off of the ice.
Volunteering as a PA counts towards mandatory volunteer hours required of all Ontario High-School aged students or PAs can choose to receive a credit that can be used towards next seasons registration fees. All Program Assistants are required to attend a mandatory training session at the beginning of each season. Being a Program Assistant is a rewarding experience!
To qualify to assist out on the ice as a Program Assistant, skaters must be at least 10 years of age, have passed Star 1 and currently be a registered Skate Canada member.
