StarSkate is a program four decades old all about Skills, Tests, Achievement and Recognition developed by Skate Canada.  StarSkate offers opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating.

Unique in Canada, this program teaches figure skating skills in a group and/or private lesson format in a progressive and sequential manner and includes specifically designed awards and incentives. Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada Tests through a nationally standardized testing system. Skaters who have mastered figure skating skills in StarSkate may also choose to pursue synchronized skating or pairs skating.

The StarSkate program consists of teaching skills inthe following four areas – Skating Skills, Ice Dance, Free Skate and Interpretive - at Primary, Intermediate and Senior Levels.  Skaters are on the ice for 60 to 90 minutes.  Fees include ice costs and a 15 minute group stroking lesson.  Further lessons are negotiated with a coach and may be individual or in a group format.  Private lesson costs are paid directly to the coach.

Skaters in the Skate Canada StarSkate Program have the option to remain in the StarSkate Program taking tests (although not mandatory) at organized test sessions and honing learned skills. Skaters may also choose to enter competitions, while still trying Skate Canada tests. Other skaters may choose not to test or compete but to participate for fun and fitness.

We have added another session this season called Senior Star. This has been added since we have such an amazing large group of skaters that we need to spread them over a few more sessions. If your skater was in Senior Skate last year, they may be moved to Senior Star. Please contact our registrar to confirm. 

 

All ages, including adults, are welome and encouraged to skate with us!
