Once skaters are beginning their Skate Canada test work and competition solos, it is recommended that they have their own coach(es) for private lessons. This is arranged by the parents with the freelance or club coach of their choice. Coaches will bill you for their lesson time based on their own individual rates.


Intro To STARSkate/Intermediate - What can you expect?


This is the beginning of the figure skater's journey. Skaters must have passed CanSkate Stage 3 level and working up to/including STAR 2 tests. The session is taught in a group format as skaters work with a dedicated coach and will start to work towards independent practice. 

Our Intermediate/Intro STARSkate session (CanSkate Stages 4 – 6) will include warm-up, minute group lesson (group size generally about 10 children per group), and a cool-down.

Skaters will continue to learn the basic fundamentals of skating (Agility, Balance and Control) and the specific STARSkate skills are introduced and refined: stroking, edges, turns, spins, jumps, and field moves.

Skaters progress at their own rate and coaches make sessions active using teaching aids, upbeat music and a wide variety of activities that create a motivational environment and promote learning. Like the CanSkate session, skaters with receive badges, ribbons and other incentives are used to benchmark skaters’ progress and reward effort and participation. Upon the completion of CanSkate Level 5, the program coordinator will notify the parent of the skaters completion as at this level the skater will be allowed to remove their helmet.

An alternative to a skating helmet while the skater continues to work on CanSkate level 6/STARSkate 2 is an Ice Halo. See

Senior STARSkate 3+


Skaters continue the journey started in Junior STARSkate and have passed two STAR 3 tests. Private lessons are strongly recommended for the figure skaters to work on individual skills and interests.


What is STARSkate?

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

STARSkate offers opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating. Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada Assesments through a nationally standardized assessment system. Skaters who have mastered figure skating skills in STARSkate may also choose to pursue synchronized skating or pairs skating. 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.
