JUNIOR PRE-STAR Program

The Junior Pre-Star program is for skaters who have completed a minimum of CanSkate Stage 4 and would like to pursue figure skating. The Junior Pre-Star program is a bridge program between CanSkate & StarSkate. Skaters will work on completing Stage 5 & 6 of the CanSkate program, as well as start to learn some figure skating oriented skills. Many of the Stage 5 & 6 skills are carried through the Star 1-10 program. 

Lessons: At the Junior Pre-Star level, all group lessons are included in your registration fees. Sometimes, there is the option of having "private lessons" with one of our club coaches. Private lessons are an additional fee arranged and paid directly to the coach. This is a relationship between you and the coach. Our coaches fill up quickly! Please reach out to one of our coaches OR email our StarSkate Coordinator if you are interested in additional lessons.

Types of Lessons

Semi-Private - A coach may work with 2 skaters at the same time

Group Lesson - A coach may work with 3-4 skaters at the same time

Private Lesson - 1:1 lesson with a coach

Report Cards: Report cards will be given to skaters at the 10-week mark of each session. Skaters may be invited to move up to Star 1 at each10-week mark if they have completed Stage 6.

Skates & Attire: Figure skates are required at this level. "Recreational skates" are typically not supportive enough. Skates should have strong ankle support and no creases in the ankles. Canadian Tire does sell some "Intro Figure Skates" Look for Jackson brand skates here or visit a specialized figure skating store. 

Skaters should have their hair tied back and away from they face. Leggings or figure skating dress/skirt should be worn. Loose fitting pants (sweatpants) and jeans will not be permitted.
