STARSkate stands for Skills, Tests, Achievement and Recognition Program. Our STARSkate program offers opportunities for skaters to develop basic to advanced skating skills in four different areas:  Dance, Free Skating, Skills and Interpretive. 

Skills introduced in the CanSkate Program are refined in STARSkate, as skaters advance through a series of tests in each of the four disciplines, through Junior, Intermediate and Senior test levels. Programs are taught via private and semi-private lessons with Professional coaches. Group stroking lessons are provided by the club and included in your session fee. Private coaching costs are not included in the session fees. Skaters can also choose to showcase their developing skills in a variety of competitive settings. In the STARSkate program, skaters are learning advanced figure skating techniques.
