Intermediate & Senior - Star (**see below) - Programs



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

Skaters will be working through "Star" levels (1-10).  This change will be gradually introduced and used in competitions and testing to note various levels in Freeskate, Skills and Dance.  Full implementation of Star levels 6-10/GOLD changes will fully take effect in September 2019.


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.  


Star 1 - 5 assessment sheets can be found by clicking (at left) for the Skate Canada website link.

The beginning level assessments will be done by a skater's coach and on a skater's regular ice time session.

Star 6-10/GOLD will continue to take place on a test day and be assessed by Skate Canada evaluators/judges.   Star 6+ level assessments have accompanying fees attached (members $8

and nonmembers $10, per skater per high test day hosted at DDFSC).


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



Intermediate Star 

Training on these sessions will be those skaters who have successfully completed CanSkate and who are beginning to develop within the beginning Star levels (approx. Star 1 - 5).  Group lessons with a Professional Coach are provided for two Skills, and one Stroking sessions per week. A minimum of 30 minutes of private semi-private and group lessons with a base coach of your choice is suggested, as skaters progress through the intermediate Star levels.


Senior Star

Senior skaters are our most advanced level skaters who have advanced up through the Star levels.

They will continue to work on the following skills (i.e., to be grandfathered into the Star 6 - 10 levels).  They will have a variety of private, semi-private and group lessons, as meets their needs.


Dance Series:

Junior Silver Dance - Harris Tango, Rocker Foxtrot, American Waltz and Keats Foxtrot

Senior Silver Dance - Blues, Paso Doble, Starlight Waltz and Killian, Cha Cha Congelado

NOTE: Changes to groupings and test expectations from pre-existing outline of test names and sequencing, as of Sept. 2019, by Skate Canada to STAR 1-10/GOLD to promote athlete overall development in all disciplines (i.e., Free Skate, Dance, Skills, Artistic).
