Skills, Tests, Achievement, Recognition – this is what STARSkate is all about!
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. Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada Tests through a nationally standardized testing system and compete in STAR 1-5 competitions. For more information, visit Skate Canada Website.
Skate Canada's STARSkate program is undergoing a refresh. The Preliminary and Junior Bronze tests will soon be replaced by the STAR 1-5 Tests and will be assessed by the skater's caoches. Coaches will now be responsible for the development and assessment of their own skaters at these levels. As of September 2016, Upper Canada will begin to implement these changes in our STARSkate program.
Upper Canada offers the following STARSkate (STAR 1-5) programs:
Intro To Junior (STAR 1)
Junior (STAR 2)
Intermediate (STAR 2-3)
Senior (STAR 3-4)
Advanced (STAR 5-10) and above
