Figure Skating Program
BSC's Figure Skating Program consists of the Intro to figure skating program and the Junior Prep Program as well as Junior, intermediate and Senior STARSkate. The Intro to Figure Skating and Junior Prep programs are transitional and recreational stages that serve as a bridge between CanSkate and STARSkate. STARSkate offers opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, and free skate with Preliminary levels offered for all three. 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 (Star 1-5 program and beyond). Skaters who have mastered figure skating skills in STARSkate may also choose to pursue synchronized skating or pairs skating.
