    SkateABLE is an adapative, learn-to-skate program for those with developmental or physical disabilities ( ).

    SkateABLE™ offers a unique opportunity for all persons with disabilities to learn how to skate through the use of adaptive skating equipment, including skating walkers and harnesses specifically designed for the SkateABLE program and manufactured right here in Ontario.

    All SkateABLE™ leaders have been specially trained on how to fit and use each piece properly and safely.

    Skater’s are provided the use of adaptive equipment at no extra charge. Skaters must provide their own non-adaptive equipment (ie. figure or hockey skates and a CSA approved hockey helmet). All skater’s will be evaluated and fitted for proper equipment prior to the first class.

    All skaters in the SkateABLE™ program are required to wear a Canadian Standards Association (CSA) approved hockey helmet. No other type of helmet will be acceptable

    For the SkateABLE program it is recommended that children under the age of 12 wear a CSA certified full facial protector that is properly attached to their helmet because they are more likely to fall forward.

    A typical 9-week program of 1 hour lessons will cost $175. The full season (fall/winter) would be $350.
