STARSKATE

STARSKATE = SKILLS, TESTS, ACHIEVEMENT, RECOGNITION

 

 

ABOUT STARSKATE

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.  MFSC 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

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 Certified Skate Canada Professional Coaches.  The beginning and end of each session is designated for a full group 15 min instruction focusing on skating skill development. Skaters during the session also receive 30 min 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 30 min before every on ice
session.
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 progress at this level.
