Qualifications: Skaters at this level are working on Canskate 4,5 and 6.
To help CanSkaters transition to the the STARSkate program, our Pre-Junior program is designed to work with skaters completing CanSkate Stage 4, 5 and 6 skills. Skaters showing advanced skills may be eligible for this program, pending the approval of both the CanSkate & StarSkate Coordinators.
Our Pre-Junior program is comprised of two mandatory elements;
Each lesson begins with 30 minutes off-ice training. These sessions are focused on warm-up, stretching, and strength training. Developing these habits early on in a figure skater's career will accelerate his or her fundamentals of figure skating. Participants are to come prepared for physical activity with running shoes and a stretching mat.
ON ICE TRAINING
Our on ice program teaches figure skating skills in a 30 minute group lesson format in a progressive and sequential manner. Skaters have the opportunity accelerate acquisition of Stage 5 & 6 skills and transition to the Junior program.
Semi-private coaching is highly recommended to further skills development however is not mandatory. Additional semi-private coach costs apply.
This program is designed and recommended as a 2-day/week program to see maximum improvement over the course of the skating season.
