STAR Academy is an invitation only program for skaters who have participated in the CanSkate program, and who show interest and ability beyond the recreational level.
Through a combination of coached lessons and individual practice time, the STAR Academy program teaches skaters to train effectively while beginning their transition from CanSkate to figure skating tests and competitions. Skaters must be assessed and approved prior to their participation in the program.
This spring, STAR Academy runs on Tuesday & Thursday at South Surrey Arena, from 3:15 to 4:35 pm. Our season begins April 3 and runs until June 21.
- 3:15-4:00 pm - 45 minute on-ice session
- 4:05-4:40 pm - 35 minute off-ice class
Skaters must wear a CSA-approved hockey helmet until they have passed CanSkate Stage 5. Running shoes must be worn for the off-ice class.
All lesson costs are included in the price of the program.
