CANSKATE PROGRAM ASSISTANT TRAINING
posted Aug 24, 2023, 11:14 AM
Are you looking to be a CanSkate Program Assistant on a CanSkate Session? Skaters that are at least 10 years of age and working at a Star B session and higher can be a Program Assistant. Program Assistants must attend the training on Friday September 8 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
New this year – There will be a $75 deposit required for the Program Assistant Jacket. This will be returned when the Jacket is returned. The fee will be charged with the online training registration.
Program Assistants are an important component to any successful CanSkate program. PA’s play a vital role in helping coaches with lessons and assisting skaters. Program Assistants can receive credit towards Skate Oakville registration fees or use the hours towards school volunteer commitment for high school.
CanSkate Program Assistants are required to be available/volunteer for at least minimum 1 session per week. If interested, Program Assistants may be able to work additional sessions pending availability.
