Effective September 1, 2019, Skate Canada implemented a complete change to the Assessment process for all STARSkaters.
The program Star 1-Gold is broken up into to two sections:
Star 1-5 – Coach Assessed
Star 6-Gold – Coach and Evaluator
A complete breakdown of all Assessments:
The Beaumont Skating Club has implemented a few policies to ease and assist:
STAR 1-5 Assessments
The STAR 1-5 program includes five levels of assessment in each discipline: Skills, Freeskate and Dance. Assessments are done by the coaches and can be completed at any time throughout the season during your skater's regular ice time. In order for Coaches to assess their skaters, they must complete the mandatory Skate Canada Assessment training.
Coach assessment of your skater is a very important part of a skater’s development.
- It measures their progress and allows them to see the results of their hard work·
- It allows the coach, parent and skater to plan the season ahead
Your Coach will decide which assessment your skater is prepared for and will advise you when an assessment will be done.

Star 6-Gold Assessments
Star 6-Gold assessments are in each of the following four disciplines: Skills, Freeskate, Dance and Artistic.
Assessments for Skills and Artistic can be completed by your skaters’ coach if they have completed their Star 6-Gold Coach Assessment training. Otherwise, skaters can attend an Assessment day and a Skate Canada Evaluator will complete the assessment.
For those skaters who are completing their Artistic Assessments, please note the mandatory clothing requirements. Speak to your Coach for details.
The Coach Assessed fees are $12.00/assessment. This fee is payable to the Beaumont Skating Club by logging in to your UPLIFTER account and selecting the Registration Tab, Clicking Assessments and finding the specific assessment as described by your skater’s Coach. Payment of the assessment is to be completed before the assessment can occur.
For Assessments outside of the Club, these fees will vary and will be at the discretion of the Assessing Club. The Assessment Coordinator and Coach will communicate with you.
