Video during next couple of weeks of CanSkate
There will be some filming on the ice during the CanSkate sessions starting this coming Monday, March 2, 2015 for the next couple of weeks. We have two coaches working towards further Skate Canada certification, and part of their training requires filming coaching assignments on the ice. This video is not for publication, and will be strictly focused on the coaches in training, not the skaters. The video will only be viewed by the person marking the assignment and the content of the video will be solely used for this purpose.
If you do not wish to have your skater in this video, you can let your child's regular coach know and they will ensure your skater is not included when filming begins.
