SkipTime Demo Team is our Performance Group, comprised of keen, advancing Recreational Skippers & Competitive Team athletes. For Rec skipping seeking further challenge, Demo is a fun increase in commitment and serves a foundation for advancing into our Comp Program. In Demo, Rec & Comp skippers work together, preparing for community performances.
Demo is a fun progression in the Sport, from Rec Class's basic skills development & FUN-damentals to Demo Team, where they are Practicing-to-Share, considered our Training-to-Train stage of Sports Development. In joining Demo Team, we encourage continued involvement in other sports.
Demo is a full year commitment, with September entry only. New Demo skippers are required to & will need to practice and learn our common group routines to participate in the shows. Demo Skippers must be concurrently registered in Rec or Comp skills building programs.
Please inquire for more Demo Program information.

Our competitive program is a great opportunity to advance technical skill, fitness, performance, personal accomplishment & personal growth. It is also a great way to meet friends, work together in a team environment. Our competitive team is comprised of two streams, with varying team commitment requirements: Part-time Comp and Full-time Competitive (Comp). The two streams have been developed to align with Long Term Athlete Development principles.
Pre-requisite: Skippers who have Masterfully Completed CANSkip Level 4 or with Coach Recommendation and Head Coach invitation, can move to the Competitive Program:
Part-time Comp includes: New competitive skippers and Competitive skippers, looking to decrease their commitment level. The amount of practice time involved is less than that of the Competitive group, enabling this group the opportunity to cross train (participate in other sports!) and ultimately reduce the potential for injury at a younger age.
Part-time Comp skippers will have designated coaches and they will practice 50% of their practice time with the competitive team and their coaching staff to improve skill development and team cohesiveness.
