Skills, Tests, Achievement, Recognition – this is what STARSkate is all about!
At the STAR Skating Level the coaches and the LTAD model recommend that skaters participate in 3-4 sessions of skating a week.
Skaters will continue to develop their skills within the areas of Freeskate (jumps, spins), Skills (edges, turns & field moves) and Dance (turns, step sequences & dance patterns). At this level of skating, the instruction needs to become more targeted to the individual athlete.
Goal setting is key in supporting skaters to reach their potential. Coaches will be sending an email in August so a goal setting session can be set up at the beginning of September. Coaches, parents and skaters all need to have a common understanding of what they are aiming for. This can be aided by setting goals and creating an action plan. Coaches will connect with you across the year to hold a check-in session to review your skaters progress
Coach assessment of your skater is a very important part of a skater’s development. Your Coach will decide which assessment your skater is prepared for and will advise you when an assessment will be done. Assessments will follow Skate Canada's Star1 - Gold guidelinesJunior skater (Star 1 to 2) Intermediate skater (Star 3 to 5) Senior skater (Star 6 to Gold)
