Skills, Tests, Achievement, Recognition – this is what STARSkate is all about!

STARSkate offers opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating. Unique in Canada, this program teaches figure skating skills in a private lesson format in a progressive and sequential manner and includes specifically designed awards and incentives. Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada Tests through a nationally standardized testing system. Skaters who have mastered figure skating skills in STARSkate may also choose to pursue synchronized skating or pairs skating.

Non-Prime Ice (Morning)

It is mandatory for each skater (with the exclusion of those that have passed their Gold Dances, Gold Skills or Gold Freeskate) to purchase 2 hours of non-prime ice.  If prior to November 1, 2017, there are ice session capacity issues, LBFSC may require skaters who have not purchased 2 hours of non-prime ice to change ice sessions and, where applicable, a refund will be issued in accordance with the refund policy. Following November 1, 2017, skaters who have not purchased 2 hours of non-prime ice will not be required to change sessions due to capacity issues as there are no refunds available.
