Skate Canada: Alberta-NWT/Nunavut Town Hall - Shared screen with speaker view
In case it does not get covered, are there inquiries or requests about having the 1:1 Adult requirement being relaxed for figure skating as there is no common touching and sharing (like in a gym).
Can special needs parents/SO skater guardians stay as spectators?
If the facility allows parent/spectators, is that ok?
what about in a can skate situation where parents are needed to dress skaters and help put on equipment etc.?
are assistants allowed on the ice and would they have to be under 18?
How come Hockey Edmonton is allowed 10 players on one half of the ice and 10 Players on the other half of ice but we are limited to 10 total?
Bonnie:We are able to have 2 groups of 10 on the ice, each at half of the ice and coaches can not go in between each group
That includes coaches but still they are allowed 20 people on the ice at one time
How long are the sessions allowed to be for 18 and under? Are the skaters able to have a group stroking lesson, then practice, then 15 min lessons?
If you have a synchro group comprised of some skaters under 18, and some over - you have to coach them differently? eg. One on one for older and group for younger - even if team?
can you please clarify what the rule of 2 is?
How does it work if you have PAs that are over 18?
Why do 19 and up have to be in a 1:1 - what makes them different than 18 and under? They're all doing the same things on the ice...
CanSkate session - If the ice divided in half, and there are 9 skaters + 1 coach on each half, what CanSkate delivery standards must be followed during the session?
on outdoors ice, can 1 coach coach up to 9 adults?
is there any information about step 2 and what that would potentially look like? Is it a little closer to what things looked like in September/October before the shut down?
Can a coach who finish being in lessons skate him/herself, provided the rink is still within the maximum number of bodies on the ice?
Any word on Assessment Days for Star 6 and up
can you have 7 skaters under 18 with 2 coaches and 1 adult over 19 with 1 coach on the ice at the same
If a Figure skating Club PARENTS wants to book ice at a facility....will the coaches be covered under skate Canada insurance or does the ice have to be booked and Paid for BY the figure skaiting club?
Extreme Edge Skating Club
If permitted by facility, are off ice lessons permitted? Again, if permitted by facility, are off ice harness lessons permitted?
would a trained coach, yet to be "certified" but in good standing be okay to pa as an adult?
We have had a parent volunteer sit in the lobby to do our contact tracing/check in and health screen. I know you’ve said no parents, but in this case would it be ok?
If you do a one on one session on an out door arena would the coaches be covered under insurance?
Are coach led Group stroking sessions allowed with more then 3 in a lesson?
So the 18 and under participants can practice on their own and not be actively coached for a portion of their session time?
Assessment days are allowed, correct? If yes, can it be within a mini group 5-7 skaters under 18 or it should be assessed one on one manner?
can skaters from other towns join on sessions?
will the slide show of rink examples be available online?
Question about the training harnesses. As I understood, on ice harness is permitted. How about off ice harness training, one on one and both in masks of course, is that allowed?
Follow up for outdoor ice - can you clarify community? Our arena we skate out of in YYC is closed...
Canskate are usually younger than 10 can parents assist skaters with skates on as most skaters cannot put their own skates on
can you define drop-in? for example if a skater and coach from a club whose ice plant has been turned off come and skate at our club if they book in ahead of time?
Do participants still have to complete the health screening questionnaire prior to entering the arena? Are we still doing contact tracing?
In a 45 minute session; 2 coaches and 8 skaters; all skaters 18 or younger. Are all the skaters required to have a lesson during that session (assuming they have a lesson during the session just before or immediately after)?
so I assume pole harnesses can’t be used then?
We have only 3 skaters that require star 6 and up assessments. Can they go to another club on a assessment day and test at the beginning or the end of their session
If we have one skater over 19, and we have a 1:1 coach for her, can this be integrated into a session with skaters under 18 as long as we are under 10 total?
If ice is limited and skaters are not skating as much as they were in September, would Skate Canada insurance cover coaches on outdoor rinks? Even with rinks open, a maximum of 10 people on the ice would limit the amount of ice time each skater can get indoors.
What about out-of-club skaters for assessment days, particularly if 2 clubs have been working under the same roof traditionally in the past: allowed?
Is there a minimum time required between sessions for sanitizing purposes?
Airdrie Skating Club
If only 4 skaters are scheduled on a session, all skaters receive a lesson, and there is time left on the session does it become a supervised session? Is this a problem?
so me and some other parents can book ice for a club and be covered by Skate Canada Insurance? That is what you said earlier and I just want to make sure that I am understanding correctly.
The people who monitor the assessment email do not have any more information than the section office at this point in time so there is not much point in directing questions there.
Huge thank you to the Section for this Town Hall and all of your hard work keeping all clubs/schools informed with these ever changing restrictions. We are grateful.
Thank you for all the information you have provided!
Skate Canada AB
please send all questions about assessments to the return to skating email
thank you again for all your doing!
Will starskate championships still run either in person or even virtually?
To clarify Power Skating Programs, we can have a max of 18 skaters and 2 coaches on ice if we have 9 skaters & 1 coach on one half of the ice and the other 9 skaters & coach on the other half of the ice?
