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.

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. Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada Tests through a nationally standardized testing system.


This is an introduction into StarSkate. As a general rule, skaters who have passed CanSkate Level 4 or are otherwise recommended by a coach may move up to Juniors. Lessons are held in a group format, with some independent skating required.

The Club provides the coach for the group lesson portion which includes two 50 minute group lessons per week. For the independent work portion, skaters may hire a coach for private lessons. Since Skate Canada does not permit coaches to solicit skaters, it is important for parents to ask coaches if they think their child is ready for individual coaching.


Juniors who are ready to skate independently and who are recommended by a coach, skate at the Low Intermediate level. Generally, skaters are coached privately at this level (or when opportunity warrants semi-privately). Skaters hire their own coach for lessons.


Skaters who are already skating in the StarSkate program and who have passed the completed Preliminary test are eligible to skate at the Senior level. Generally, skaters are coached privately at this level. Skaters hire their own coach for lessons.
