Learn to Skate

The Chiefs Development Group Skating Academy, in Chilliwack, BC incorporates the strongest elements from nationally recognized programs to provide a program that ensures skaters progress through the skills of skating safely and efficiently, while having lots of FUN!

The clear structure and distinct levels of the Academy provide skaters with a clear path to success in the sport of skating, and will prepare them for a hockey or basic figure skating program. Whether you’re stepping on the ice for the first time, or if you’ve been skating for years, this is the place to develop your skills!

The Chilliwack Coliseum offers a variety of lessons and camps. Whether you’re 3 years old and just stepping onto the ice for the first time or if you’ve been playing for years, this is where to spend your time refining your skills!

Skating and Hockey Classes typically run on mid Saturday morning into mid Saturday afternoon. Lessons run from late September until early May.

For 2020 our last set of classes (April 5 – May 3) have been cancelled as a result of the Chilliwack Coliseum temporary closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
