Junior STARSkate is a beginner learn to Figure Skate program for skaters aged 10 & over. It operates under the guidance of Skate Canada. Skaters will learn the basics of figure skating including edges & turns, jumps, spins and creative expression. This program is also a pathway for skaters who wish to pursue figure skating further and move into the Star program.
Skaters must have basic skating skills to enrol in Junior STARSkate. Previous skating experience is expected for skaters in this program; whether that experience is from our CanSkate program, former STAR 1 Program or from an external program.
Skaters will require an invitation or audition to enter the program. Skaters will need figure skates and proper skating attire (skating dress or leggings, fitted pants (boys) and a fitted sweater/jacket) for this program. Hair must be tied back neatly off the skaters face.
Halo helmets are recommended for figure skaters and can be purchased here: Ice Halo Canada.
