STARSkate

STARSkate offers opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating. Unique in Canada, this program teaches figure skating skills in a group and/or private lesson format in a progressive and sequential manner and includes specifically designed awards and incentives. Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada Tests through a nationally standardized testing system. 

You may only register in any of the STARSkate programs if you are already enrolled in a STARSkate program or if you have been invited by one of our Coaches.

Summer 2019

The summer season is sold one week at a time with a minimum of 2 weeks required. If you choose not to skate during the summer your child may be moved down a level in the Fall/Winter - this is done at the Coach’s discretion.

All July classes will be at Fleetwood Arena while August classes will be at South Surrey Arena.
