STARSKATE is for our skaters that have successfully completed the Canskate program and would like to persue figure skating. In the Starskate figure skating program, with guidance from coaches skaters will learn jumps & spins in freeskate, ice dance, skating skills, and artistic skating. Starskaters progress through Skate Canada’s Nationally Star program and its standardized assessment system. MSC offers 3 levels of skating in our Starskate program Junior, Intermediate and Senior each requiring their own set of star assessments to be achieved for the specific level. We complement all of our on ice instruction with specialized off ice training for all Starskaters.
JUNIOR STARSKATE is a program for those skaters that have completed Canskate and are ready to pursue figure skating. Skaters receive a total of 1 hour fully coached group lesson instruction conducted by our Skate Canada certified coaches. 15min at the beginning and at the end of each session is designated for a full group instruction focusing on skating skill development. Skaters during the session also receive 30min of smaller group instruction focusing on specific skating skills in the disciplines of skills, dance, freeskate and synchro.
Fitness classes are part of the junior program for 30min before every on ice session.
