Skills, Tests, Achievement, Recognition – this is what STARSkate is all about!

 

Junior Academy

 

Junior Academy is an "invite to participate program".  If you are interested, email us and we can send you more information on the program

Program Information

At the Junior Academy level, skaters will continue to develop their foundational skating skills and be introduced to introductory figure skating skills such as jumps, spins, turns, edges and field moves through 2 sessions a week. Skaters will work on attaining the higher levels of the CanSkate Badges. Skate Canada requires skaters wear a helmet until they have achieved their stage 5 badge.

Off-ice

As skills become more challenging, off ice plays a key element in athlete development. . Off-ice helps to develop flexibility, agility and strength, while supporting skaters in practicing new skills on land. 

Skaters are required to wear running shoes and clothing that allows them to move and stretch easily and safely. 

 

Lesson Format

At the IFS level skaters will participate in whole group stroking sessions, small group coach lead lessons, and independent practice time where skaters will have time to work on the skills they are learning.

Competitions‚Äč

There may be opportunities over the season for skaters to participate in competition.  Coaches will send out an email prior to registration opening to inform you of the upcoming opportunities. Different competitions target different competitive levels and coaches will ensure they match your child’s competitive level with the opportunities available across the season.
