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