Pre-Star Program

PreStar Program: 

The program is open to all skaters that are at the CanSkate Stage 4 and 5 level, who are interested in figure skating.

The Pre‐Star Program is available to those who have a desire to further their Figure Skating skills, and is intended to provide both the skater and the parent with an “Introduction to Figure Skating”.

The program consists of a 50‐minute CanSkate session followed by a 30‐minute group session.

CanSkate allows the skaters to continue working on their basic and advanced skating skills while earning ribbons and badges.

The Pre‐Star group session offers group lessons, introducing the skaters to figure skating skills and elements.

Coaching fees for CanSkate and the Pre‐Star group sessions are included in the registration fees.

Coaching fees for any additional private lessons are invoiced directly to the parent by their coach. A list of coaches is provided below and on the Club website.
