The StarGroup program is for skaters that have passed Canskate Badge 5+ who would like to continue figure skating in a fun & motivating group format. 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. It is highly recommended that skaters in the StarGroup Program also take private or semi-private lessons to progress more quickly.
Skaters are grouped according to age and/or ability and progress at their own rate. STARSkate skaters are assessed through the nationally standardized testing system for achieving figure skating skills in the five disciplines as recognized by Skate Canada – Free Skate, Ice Dance, Skating Skills, Synchronized Skating and Artistic. All STAR 1-5 assessments, can generally be completed on your skater’s regular ice by their qualified coach. Testing Fees are not covered in the Program Costs.
Each session includes 15 minutes of independent warm-up, 45 minutes of instructional time and 15 minutes of personal practice time.
