READY…SET…JCP!

The Junior Competitive Program (JCP) at JellyLoop further develops skaters who currently participate in Learn to Skate and private lessons.  JCP fosters competition, and camaraderie amongst skaters through participation in disciplines of singles, dance, pairs and theater on ice.

The program is taught by all the professional coaching staff members of JellyLoop .  In addition, JCP provides introductory parent education sessions led by experience club Bord members, renowned sports psychologists, nutritionists, doctors, physios and more.  We hope to see you all at this high quality and affordable program.
