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 and our Welcome to Junior StarSkate letter for specific details about our Junior 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 testing system.

Junior A

JUNIOR A STARSKATE program is specifically designed for those skaters just completing the CanSkate program. In this program, skaters gradually move from a 100% coach-directed program towards more skating independence. The Junior A session fee includes two (2) x 15 minute group lessons. Both group lessons are conducted by a professional skating coach. The balance of their session time is utilized through a private lesson with their coaches and/or working on their skills independently.

 

Minimum qualification: Completion of Canskate stage 6 or the equivalent, or CanSkate Stage 4 and has a private coach.

 

Note: For the Junior A & B StarSkate levels, 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.

Skaters who attend a minimum two sessions per week will have more opportunity to continuously improve their figure skating abilities.

Junior B

JUNIOR B STARSKATE is designed to accommodate those skaters who have already spent a full season in Junior A but have not yet achieved the minimum qualifications for the Intermediate level. The Junior B session fee includes two 15 minute group lessons. The balance of their session time is used for a private lesson with their coaches and working on their skills independently.

 

Minimum qualification: Completed one full season in Junior A and has a private coach.

 

Note: For the Junior A & B StarSkate levels, 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.

Intermediate

INTERMEDIATE STARSKATE continues to progress the skater towards skating independence and private coaching. Some Intermediate sessions include a 15 minute group lesson. 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) or in a group lesson on some sessions.

StarSkate Registration Steps

StarSkate Registration Steps

 

Please review the information on this page before registering for our programs.

 

  1. Review  the 2017-2018 Starskate Policies for important information including our volunteering requirements, payment and refund/credit policies.
  2. Determine whether you are registering as a Regular (MFSC is your home club), Associate (Home club is not MFSC and you are skating at least twice per week with MFSC) or Guest (Home club is not MFSC and you are skating only once per week with MFSC) Member. For a Sustaining or Partnering membership, please contact the registrar at registrar@mississaugsfsc.com
  3. Review the 2017-2018 StarSkate Schedule and Fees to determine which sessions you wish to register for.
  4. Contact your private coach to ensure their availability on your desired sessions.  A “change session fee” will apply if you have to change your session after you have registered.
  5. Click Registration at top right corner of the website.
  6. For new members: Create your membership account. Enter your information as “member” and your skater’s information as “participant” once only (check list that appears at bottom of screen). Add yourself as “participant” only if you wish to register for Adult Canskate.  The Club communicates with members exclusively by email.  It is important that we have your current email address and that you have allowed for all email communications from the club when setting up your account in order to receive our important messages regarding instalment payments, events, session information and cancellations.
  7. For returning members: Log into your account. Review your membership information including email address, and update if necessary. Add any new “participant” once only (check list that appears at bottom of screen) Add yourself as “participant” only if you wish to register for Adult Canskate.  The Club communicates with members exclusively by email.  It is important that we have your current email address and that you have allowed for all email communications from the club when setting up your account in order to receive our important messages regarding instalment payments, events, session information and cancellations.
  8. Find a session you wish to register for and click the REGISTER button beside it.
  9. Select the participant you wish to register in the session. You will then see:
    Step 1 Registration Review window. The session chosen will be listed under Registrations. If this is the first session chosen for the participant, you will also see the Skate Canada fee and Club Membership fee. If you have any credits or discounts, they will also be included.
  10. You will also be asked to register for your volunteer activities. For the 2017-18 skating season, we require our Regular and Associate Starskate members to register for three bingos (5 credits each) for each Starskater (maximum six bingos per family), to a total of 15 credits or their equivalent in volunteer hours.
    Please choose 3 bingos (5 credits each) since the system will not allow you to complete registration without these credits. You can filter the volunteer options by giving a range of dates on the left side of the window. You can also buy out some of your bingo volunteer duties ($60 per 5 credits) by adding one of the other products to your shopping cart before checking out.
    If your child is either a Guest skater with our club (non-club member who skates only once per week with our club) or the third Starskater in family and therefore no volunteering is required, you can later send an email to accounts@mississaugafsc.com and make a request to be removed from the volunteer duties you selected.
  11. Choose to either REGISTER FOR MORE PROGRAMS or CONFIRM & REGISTER.
  12. To register for another program for the same skater, click REGISTER FOR MORE PROGRAMS:
  13. If your contact address is not in Mississauga, add the $60 non-resident fee under “Purchase Other Items”. This is payable for each skater you are registering.
  14. When you have added all sessions for the skater, review your Shopping Cart, which appears at the top of the screen.
  15. When you are ready to continue, click CONFIRM & REGISTER. This takes you to:
    Step 2. Contact/Billing Information. Verify your information and enter a billing address if it is different from your Contact Information. The Contact should be the parent/guardian is the participant is under 18. Click on the 2017-18 StarSkate Registration waiver to open it. Read the waiver, accept it, and the waiver will close. The acceptance box will be automatically checked off.
    Step 3. Payment information. Payment is by credit card only. You can choose to either pay the full amount immediately or in installments. A Tax receipt will be ready to download in early 2018 by the person who paid for the registration.  A notification will be sent out when Tax receipts are available.
    Step 4. Registration Receipt. You will now see your Registration Receipt. It contains your registration and payment details including your payment due dates. A copy of this receipt will be emailed to you.
    Note: If your contact address is not in Mississauga, and you have not included the non-resident fee ($60 per Starskate member) during registration, it will be manually added to your invoice by our Registrar after you have finished the on-line registration process. The revised invoice will be emailed to you.

 

Repeat steps 6 – 15 for the other StarSkaters in your family.
