Who can participate in the Mini-competition?
This competition is for all CanSkate, Pre-STARSkate and First Year Junior (Star 1) skaters.
When is the Mini-competition?
The mini-competition is on Monday, November 26, 2018 from 6-8pm. You will receive your child’s skate time as the date draws nearer.
What does my child need to do in the competition?
CanSkate students will be performing 4-6 fundamental skills that they have been practicing the past weeks--these are all components they need to master to achieve their badges and ribbons. The Pre-STARSkate and first-year Juniors will be performing half ice solos. It is a great opportunity for the skaters to shine, as they demonstrate their progress.
What should my skater wear to the competition?
Girls are encouraged to wear a skating dress or skirt with a tucked-in shirt, beige tights and a warm zippered sweater they can easily remove after their on-ice warm up. CanSkate girls may dress in nice fitted leggings and top/sweaters if they do not have a skating dress. Please check out the Buy and Sell section of our website to see if any of our members are selling dresses that they have outgrown or to advertise any dresses you may no longer need. Other great places for skating dresses and tights include Professional Skate, Bodythings and Masque.
Boys should wear dress pants and a shirt/sweater. Jeans are discouraged.
Will my child enjoy the competition?
Of course! Even though it’s a “competition” of sorts, the focus is on having fun and every child will receive a medal. As well, you can purchase a flower to congratulate your skater on a great performance for $2.50.
Will photographs be available?
We are pleased to welcome the talented David Patton of Patton Photography as our official photographer for this event. Photographs are charged by a sitting fee. The sitting fee will be $30 for three poses, which would include the photos in high resolution that can be downloaded. Conveniently, the sitting fee can be paid at the time. After the competition, a gallery will be set up by the photographer so that parents would have access to photos of their individual child.
