DSAT wants to thank the Stein family for sponsoring this program and helping to lower the cost of participation.
SkateABLE™ is Canada’s first truly inclusive ice skating program. Through the use of adaptive skating equipment, persons with any form of physical or developmental disability can participate in “stand-up” ice skating classes. Their goal is to make ice skating classes accessible, affordable, and fun for everyone.
The SkateABLE™ program is a high-quality, progressively-structured adaptive ice skating program that is aligned with the Canadian Sport for Life Long-Term Athlete Development Model. As a High Five® registered organization, SkateABLE™ is committed to delivering programs to the highest standard of quality and safety. Skaters are encouraged to progress at their own pace.
SkateABLE™ provides it’s skaters with specially-designed skating equipment that helps to lower the threshold of participation in healthy activity for children and adults who live with challenges. Skaters improve their balance, coordination, endurance, strength, and self-esteem, make friends and develop socially.
