  • STAR 1 -5 assessments are less formal than Test Days. Skaters will be evaluated during a regular session by their own coaches.
  • STAR 1 assessments are the least formal. Depending on the coaches’ preferences, skaters may be allowed to wear their practice skating outfits. As skaters progress from STAR 1 to 2, 3, and 4, the tests become more formal. Skaters will have to wear their skating dresses, do up their hair etc. It is to prepare skaters for higher level testing which they will be evaluated by outside judges.
  • STAR 5 assessments will be similar to tests in the Test Day setting where skaters are expected to arrive early and dress properly.
