Furthermore, our CanSkate learn-to-skate programs have proven instrumental in helping skaters acquire essential forward, backward, and stopping skills, essential not only for figure skating but also for those keen on venturing into the dynamic world of hockey.

Our Organization

Skate Windsor stands as the sole organization in Windsor officially registered as a sports club with Special Olympics Ontario. Our team of specially trained coaches is dedicated to fostering the long-term athletic development (LTAD) of skaters with intellectual disabilities.

Located at both Adie Knox Arena and Forest Glade Arena, Skate Windsor’s home spans across the west and east ends of the city, ensuring accessibility and providing a diverse range of program scheduling to cater to our community’s needs.

During the spring and summer months, when the City of Windsor reduces available skating surfaces, Skate Windsor seamlessly transitions its programs to the WFCU Centre, ensuring continuity and offering a consistent experience for participants.

Unleash Your Potential on the Ice

In Canada, over six million people don their skates annually. Through our inclusive programming, we encourage individuals to get involved and remain engaged for life. Our various programs cater to diverse age groups and skating abilities. Pre-CanSkate and CanSkate serve as our entry-level programs, focusing on imparting fundamental skating skills to children and youths.

CanPowerSkate is designed for skaters aged approximately six or older who already possess basic forward and backward skating skills (capable of skating the length of the rink using alternate strides) and can stop on command. After mastering these fundamentals, numerous options become available, including hockey, figure skating, speed skating, public skating, and more.
