What is the difference between the CanSkate and Learn-to-Skate programs?

In the CanSkate program, skaters rotate between coaches during each session and can earn badges (Stages 1 through 6).  This program is designed for skaters who have an interest in pursuing an ice sport.  This is a Skate Canada National Program.  Skaters also have the option to participate in our annual carnival show, Flashing Blades at the end of our season.  This program runs from October to March.

The Learn-to-Skate program teaches the basic skating skills in a large group environment.  Groups can be larger than the CanSkate program depending on registration.  This is not a badge program.  This is a community based program, not a Skate Canada National Program.  This program is offered in the Fall (Oct-Dec) and Winter (Jan-Mar).

STARSKATE:  (Skills, Tests, Achievement, Recognition)

The introductory level for all figure skating programs is the Star 1-10 program.  This program is intended for skaters who have passed Stage 6 of the CanSkate program.  Skaters are placed in groups according to ability.  Group instruction and supervision is provided by professional coaches and qualified program assistants.  Skaters will develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of stroking, ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating.  Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada Tests through a nationally standardized testing system.  Availability of program is subject to registration.
