Intro Star Skate (previously Pre Junior)
This program is designed for skaters who have passed Canskate Stage 5 and would like to continue to challenge their figure skating skills. Skaters will be introduced to skating skills, freeskate and dance in a progressive and sequential manner. As skaters master skills in each area, they will have the opportunity to take tests and/or enter competitions. Skaters will be taught in small groups (6 skaters or less) by Skate Canada professional coaches in a fun and positive environment. This program will also include an off ice component to improve balance, coordination and flexibility.
Skaters can choose one or two Intro Star sessions a week. They also have the option of skating an additional CanSkate session, or a Junior session. The Junior session does not include coaching, and it is the responsibility of the parent to arrange for coaching. Skaters must have a coach to be on Junior ice. Check with one of our coaching staff or executive if you are unsure how to proceed.
Intro Star Skate Sessions are 20 weeks in duration and each session is 65 minutes with an off ice component before the on ice session.
