January 2021 CanSkate Update

We are excited to announce that our CanSkate registration is now open!

This CanSkate program will be offered on Fridays from 5:00-6:00pm and Saturdays from 11:30-12:30pm and will take place at the Cloverdale arena.


This program is in high demand, and due to Covid-19 we are only allowing minimal numbers on the ice. Thus we have some requirements for registration:

  1. Skaters must be at least 6 years old as of January 1st

  2. Skaters must have skating experience and are able to stand up on their own for safety reasons

  3. As of right now no parents or spectators are allowed in the building as per City of Surrey regulations

If your skater meets these requirements please reach out to Courtney, our Director of Programs for more information!
