The STARSkate Final competition takes place in Kelowna on March 2 - 4, 2018. The updated schedule and skater groupings are posted on the SkatinginBC website.

This competition is the final STARSkate event of 2017-2018 and will crown the Super Series Champions in Pre-Juvenile U14 and STAR 5 – Gold Free Skate. Adult events will also be offered. Region Team Competition: The Super Series Region Trophy will be awarded at the conclusion of the competition. Each Region will pre-select 10 skaters whose individual events placement will be valued with a score. The scores will be added up for a Region total score which will determine the final rankings.

Notes for parents new to CanSkate

CanSkate Organization:

  • All of our CanSkate sessions offer instruction for all levels of ability; the only difference between CanSkate 1 and CanSkate 2 is age.
  • Groups within each CanSkate class are divided based on age and/or ability. Depending on numbers, there could be 2 or 3 groups at approximately the same level.
  • Program Assistants (PAs) are young club skaters who have been trained to assist the professional club coaches on CanSkate sessions. They are identified by their red jackets. 
  • Typical class schedule:
    • 5 minutes warm up, choreographed to music
    • 30 minutes in lesson group time, which are done on circuits 
    • 5minutes cool down

Reminders for parents:

  • All CanSkate participants must wear a CSA-approved hockey helmet. There can be no exceptions; if your child does not have a proper helmet, they will not be able to attend their session.
  • Please be patient for the first few lessons. It takes time to assess skaters and organize groups; your child will likely be moved around between groups several times to find the best fit.
  • Parents must sit in the stands; they are not permitted in the players' bench area where the skaters enter and exit the ice.
  • PAs are not professional coaches; their role is to assist on the CanSkate sessions. Any questions about the program or your child's progress should be directed to the club coaches (not PAs), after the session is over, or email Canskate Director Caroline Mackeen at canskate@wrsssc.com.
  • Report cards will be handed out in December and March.

See our CanSkate page for more information about the Skate Canada CanSkate program.
