About StarSkate

STARSKATE is Skate Canada’s program which offers skaters of all ages the opportunity to develop fundamental figure skating skills, such as stroking, spinning, jumping and ice dancing. The STARSkate program consists of figure skating skills in four areas – Skating Skills, Ice Dance, Free Skate and Interpretive. Please refer to our STARSkate Information Sheet for more details about the STARSkate program.

 

At MFSC, three levels of STARSKATE are offered to children and teenagers – Junior, Intermediate and Senior. We also offer Adult Starskate for skaters 18 and older. Skaters progress through the levels based on their successful completion of the various levels of Skate Canada’s nationally standardized assessment system.

Mississauga Figure Skating Club MFSC

Junior

JUNIOR STARSKATE is a program for those skaters that have completed Canskate and are ready to pursue figure skating.  Skaters receive a total of 60min/1 hour of fully coached group lesson instruction conducted by our Skate Canada certified coaches.  15min at the beginning and the end of each session is designated for a full group warm up/cool down 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.  Skaters receive full time coaching on each junior session at MFSC.

 

Minimum qualification: Completed Canskate Stage 6

 

Note: For the Junior Starskate program, the club requires that there be an Adult, who is responsible for the skater, present in the arena at all times during the skater’s session.

It is mandatory for skaters in the Junior program to skate 2 sessions per week in order to continuously improve their figure skating abilities.

Intermediate

INTERMEDIATE STARSKATE continues to progress the skater towards skating independence and private coaching.  Intermediate sessions includes two  15 minute group lessons with a coach. The balance of the session time is utilized through a private lesson with their coach and working on their skills independently. Skaters must have a private coach at this level.

 

Minimum qualification: Passed any STAR 3 Assessment.

Senior

SENIOR STARSKATE requires skaters to practice their skills and routines independently, with the exception of the time spent in private lesson(s) with their coach(s). Two 15min group lessons are offered on all sessions conducted by one of our club coaches.

 

Minimum qualification: Passed STAR 5  Skills and Star 4 Freeskate Elements and Star 4 Program or STAR 5 Skills and STAR 5A Dance and STAR 5B Dance.
