Skills, Tests, Achievement, Recognition – this is what STARSkate is all about!
Sr. A skaters are working on STARSkate and Star 1-5 which 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. Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada Tests through a nationally standardized testing system.
This program runs 3 days a week.
Jr. A is for skaters that have passed the six stages of Canskate and are entering into the StarSkate program. These skaters are usually working on Star 1 and 2.
Jr. A usually skates twice weekly for 2 hours each with the Sr. A program.
Our Intermediate program is for skaters in Canskate working on stages 2-6 that show an interest for Figure Skating. While we continue to teach the fundamental skills of each Canskate stage, skaters are also introduced to the structure of a figure skating class.
Intermediate runs twice a week usually Thursday's for 70 minutes and Friday's for 50 minutes.
Our Sr. B program is an extension of our Intermediate program and is for skaters in Canskate Stage 5 and 6. This program skates with the Intermediates as well as an extra 30 minutes on Sr. A ice to introduce them to our figure skating program.
