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

 

Transition to STARSkate

 

Program Information

 
At the Transition to STARSkate (TS) level skaters will continue to develop their foundational skating skills and as well as specific figure skating skills, such as; jumps, spins, turns, edges and field moves. Skaters will begin to work on the the initial STAR assessments.  As skills become more challenging, off-ice plays a key element.  
 

 

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. 
 
***NOTE:  Due to Covid-19 Restrictions Off-Ice sessions are on hold.  Please stay tuned for more information

 

Lesson Format:

Skaters at this level will participate in  1 weekly group session consisting of Whole group stroking, small coach lead lessons and independent practice time where skaters will have time to work on theskills they are learning.
They will also be required to register for private lessons during STARSkate time once a week to support their growth in the sport. Private lessons can take different forms; private (one on one instruction), semi-private (2 skaters) and small group (3 or more skaters). Coaches use semi-private and small group lessons when there are skaters working on the same skills or elements (this can help to keep the cost of lessons down). Please contact the coaches if you have questions about private lessons or coaching fees.

 

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.
