Pre-Stars/Development

A new program for 2020/21 season.
Figure Skating is an early specialization sport meaning coaches need to identify talent as early as possible. The Development Program is designed to be an addition to CanSkate not necessarily instead of, but should be discussed with the Director as age and ability will have some impact on that decision.
The focus of the Development program is to teach the skaters to train effectively right from the start of their skating journey and prepare them for entering Pre-Stars will a higher level of skill and awareness.

Star Skate Program

Skate Canada has two streams a skater can progress through - Star Skate and Competitive. However all skaters regardless of eventual level or intention must begin at the Star levels until a minimum of Star 5 is passed. A skater can continue in the Star Skate stream their whole skating career, compete regionally, and achieve many tests. It is somewhat more of a recreational stream but still produces nice skaters and is no way the lesser stream.

Competitive Program

The competitive stream holds criteria of tests passed versus age, and is as the word suggests, more competitive.
Skaters need to achieve certain tests by certain ages to remain in this stream.
The tests have a different structure and competitions are Regional, Sectional and later National or International.

Off Ice

This program is included in most of the other programs as it is just as important to train off ice as it is on ice. Off Ice skills that will be taught are all relevant to the development of a figure skater. Some classes are skating specific and some are general for athletic and normal childhood development. Will include Endurance, Co-ordination, Flexibility, Strength/Core, Rotation, Yoga/Pilates, Dance, Performance Skills and Psych Skills to name a few.

Summer Camp Programs

Usually longer and more intensive training prior to the season starting each September. Often a minimum of two On Ice sessions and Off Ice training will include guests for a more holistic development.
The focus of Spring and Summer Ice is always keeping up general fitness with Off Ice Skills required for skating, while On Ice Skills provide acquisition and choreography setting. The polishing and perfecting process comes later.

Seminars/Workshops

Planned throughout the year in addition to normal training days, usually as a boost to education, rules etc. Opportunity to cover some items though not required every day, are still important and valuable. For example, Performance Seminar would focus on performance skills, interpretation, character development, dance etc.

Adults

Skating is for Life! A program for Adults to increase their skills, have a little fun and get some exercise in! Focusing on Skating Skills, Ice Dance, Jumps and Spins.
