The Littlest Leverick  

...meet Keaton.

Last month, we introduced you to the Leverick Family- Canlan Ice Sports Family Ambassadors.

 

This month, we shine the spot light on the littlest Leverick… KEATON!  You may remember him from last month’s blog, where he introduced himself as “Keaton Big Boy Leverick”.  Keaton is a banana loving, great jumping, tiger enthusiast, who wants nothing to do with potatoes or coffee. He is a preschool student by day, and youngest sibling extraordinaire by night. 

 

While Keaton’s older brothers and sister are at school, he gets to spend a few hours at the rink hanging out with Program Coordinator Ally. Ally and Keaton work on many things, in hopes that one day he will be able to catch his big brother Kohen on the ice!

 

What does a day at the rink for 3 year old Keaton look like?

 

Well first off, Keaton and his mom Kristy are greeted by Ally and the programs team. Even though Keaton’s whole family has been around the rink for years, this is his first program at Canlan, and we like to make sure all of our little super stars feel...well...like little super stars!  Keaton is enrolled in the Pre School Learn to Skate, where he is busy learning the basics of skating.  Kristy has opted to let this independent, eager little guy learn without her on the ice (although we also do offer Parent and Tot Classes for those kids a little more reserved!!), and he is loving every second of the freedom.

 

Once Keaton is on the ice, he is led through a variety of activities. The great thing about the Learn to Skate program is that is transitions exceptionally well into hockey, ringette, figure skating, or simply continuing on with recreational skating.  The kids all gain a sense of confidence on the ice, and the idea of “fun” is introduced right from the get go.

 

Keaton is learning quickly- the instructors have already noticed changes!  Most importantly, we have seen an inside look at the wide variety of Keaton's giggles repertoire. Spoiler: it is the best.  

 

We are so happy to have this little man involved at the rink, and can’t wait to watch him grow into his hockey career!!
