**STAR PROGRAMS

 

PLEASE NOTE:

 

Skate Canada has switched over to a new system format that outlines StarSkate levels in a different way.  Skaters will be working through the categories, as mentioned above, but the

levels will be noted as "Star" levels (1-10).  This change will be introduced and used in

competitions and testing to note various levels in Freeskate, Skills and Dance.

 

If you would like to see outlines of skills and assessments at the lower Star levels, please

refer to the following page of our our website.  This page, entitled "StarSkate: assessment of skills: has two charts that outline the Star levels from 1-5.  As skaters develop further then they will advance beyond, to Star 6 and above.  

 

For more information, please talk to your child's  skating coach.
