Tim Hortons Sponsors Learn 2 Skate Programming

Announced this morning, Tim Hortons has made a naming sponsorship of the Learn 2 Skate programs offered by Canlan Ice Sports inside the SportONE/Parkview Icehouse. This is the first ever sponsorship of the program. The Fort Wayne Amateur Hockey Association (FWAHA) is thrilled to see community partners come together to support more skaters getting on the ice. Individuals of all ages are invited to participate in Tim Hortons Learn 2 Skate as the first step toward recreational, figure or hockey skating. To register, visit

Currently, there are over 450 skaters enrolled in Tim Horton’s Learn 2 Skate. Annually, the months of November and December are one of the largest enrollment times because Canlan offers a free pair of skates to everyone registering for an upcoming session. With this new support of Tim Hortons, the Canlan team will be able to offer an additional opportunity during the year where they will give a new pair of skates to individuals registering to participate in a Tim Horton’s Learn 2 Skate program. Additionally, participants all year long will receive a Tim Horton’s branded item, like a winter hat, that they can wear into any local Tim Hortons and receive a 10-pack of Tim Bits for just $1.00.

Learn 2 Skate is currently offered four times per week at the SportONE/Parkview Icehouse for individuals of all ages interested in learning how to skate. After graduating from Learn 2 Skate instruction, skaters are able to progress on with figure skating or hockey training.
