STARSkate is for our skaters that have successfully completed the CanSkate program and would like to pursue figure skating.  In the STARSkate 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 National 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  our on-ice instruction with specialized off-ice training for all STARSkaters.




Junior STARSkate is a program for those skaters who have completed CanSkate and are ready to pursue the various disciplines of skating.  Skaters receive a one hour fully-coached group lesson conducted by our Certified Skate Canada Professional Coaches.  The start and end of each session day is designated for a full group 15 min instruction focusing on skating skill development. Skaters will also receive 30 min of smaller group instruction focusing more on specifics in the disciplines of Dance, Freeskate, Skills and Synchro. Fitness classes are offered as part of the Junior program for 60 min before the Monday, Tuesday and Thursday sessions.
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 during the skater’s session.  It is mandatory for skaters in the Junior program to skate two days per week in order to continuously progress.







Intermediate STARSkate continues to advance the skater towards skating independence and private coaching.  Intermediate sessions include one 15 minute group lesson with one of our Club coaches. The balance of the session time is utilized with a private lesson from their base coach, further enhancing their skills and some solo practice time. Skaters must have a private coach at this level. We complement our on-ice instruction with a specialized off-ice training class of 60 minutes before the start of the session on Friday A session.

Minimum qualification: Passed any STAR 3 Assessment.






Senior STARSkate requires skaters to practice their skills independently with the exception of the time spent in private lesson(s) with their coach(es). One 15 minute group lesson is offered on all sessions for skaters conducted by one of our Club coaches. We complement our on-ice instruction with a specialized off- ice training class of 60 minutes before the start of the Fridays A  session.

Minimum qualification:

Passed STAR 5  Skills and Star 4 Freeskate Elements  and Star 4 Program OR STAR 5 Skills and STAR 5A and 5B Dance.
