Once skaters complete their Star 1-5 assessment, they have the opportunity to take Skate Canada tests through a nationally standardized testing system. Taking Skate Canada tests moves a skater through the StarSkate program. Test days are held in Orangeville or Shelburne.
When Do Skaters Try Tests?
Skaters who have completed Star 5 (Dance, Skills or Freeskate) of the StarSkate program will be assessed by Skate Canada judges during any one of the scheduled Test Days.
Who Decides If A Skater Tries a Test?
Your skater's coach will prepare them for tests and decide when they are ready. Your skater will receive a form indicating which next will be assessed and on which date.
Test Day Fees
The Skate Canada fee for each test is $12. Test fees must be paid in full prior to Test Day. If you have not paid the test fee, your skater will not be allows to try their test.
As directed by Skate Canada, once the final test lists have been submitted to the Test Chairperson, NO refunds will be provided (except in medical cases) If a skater does not show up for a Test Day, the test fee must still be paid.
