Registration for spring programs will open in early March 2024.

FUTURE STARS

The Future Stars Program is for those who have a desire to further their figure skating skills and is intended to provide both the skater and the parent with an “Introduction to Figure Skating”. Lessons are provided in a group format.

The Future Stars program is open to all skaters that have passed CanSkate stage 2 and achieved 2 out of 3 CanSkate stage 3 ribbons, and who are interested in figure skating.

 STAR 1-5

The STAR 1-5 program offers the best-in-class figure skating curriculum in Canada, targeting athletes looking for a future in the sport. Taught by Skate Canada NCCP coaches, the program introduces participants to the basic figure skating elements to create the foundation for singles, pairs, ice dance and synchronized skating.

All skaters in this program must have passed CanSkate Stage 6 or equivalent. Skaters may be any age. Adaptive skaters who have the required skating ability welcome.

STAR 6- GOLD

STAR 6- Gold is an assessment and event structure for skaters who completed the STAR 1-5 Program. This structure builds on the skills acquired in STAR 1-5 and introduces skaters to more advanced figure skating elements.

DISCIPLINES

Figure skating has four disciplines that lead to a high performance pathway.

Singles: Single skating is a term used to describe the discipline of freeskate. Generally, this is the most recognized form of figure skating.

Pairs: Pair skating involves two individuals skating as a unit performing freeskating moves. Pair skating also includes lifts, death spirals and throws.

Ice Dance: Inspired by ballroom dancing, this discipline incorporates musicality, performances and athletisim to all your favourite rhythms.

Synchronized: Synchronized skating, or “synchro” is a specialized discipline of skating involving groups of eight or more skaters performing various group formations and maneuvers. The objective is for the team to perform as one unit executing circles, blocks, lines, wheels and intersections in unison to the music, while demonstrating quality edges, power and flow. Synchronized Skating categories  accommodate skaters at any age and skill level.
