Skill Tests Achievement Recognition
This is what STARskate is all about!
This program is divided into Junior, Senior and Elite Starskate sessions.
This program is designed for the skaters who have accomplished the fundamentals of skating and are in a position to advance these skills with the aid of a professional coach. Individual lessons encompass stroking, skills, freeskate and dance with time to practice without a coach. This program allows a skater to participate in the SKATE CANADA Starskate program by completing the required tests.
This program is divided into Starskate 1 and Starskate 2 sessions in order to ensure skater safety of the sessions. Different requirements have been put in place to organize each session effectively.
