Motivate 2 Skate

Motivate 2 Skate

Motivate 2 Skate was created to help young students and international post-secondary students learn one of Canada's most enjoyed pastimes - ice skating! YNCU, in partnership with the YNCU Soo Pee Wee Arena, will be hosting FREE skating lessons for students in the Sault Ste. Marie area. Experienced instructors will outline the basic skills needed to help you skate with confidence. Check out our upcoming lessons below!


Upcoming Sessions

As adults living in Canada for the first time, we understand that you may not want to take skating lessons with a group of young kids, that's why we are offering adult-only skating lessons for international students and new Canadians studying at a local post-secondary school.
