The Advanced CanSkate session is geared towards CanSkaters, 10 and under, who are currently working on the stage 3 CanSkate badge or better.
This session is combined with the Junior session to provide these young skaters with exposure to stronger skating skills. They are given use of the full ice and 45 minutes of direct instruction from a Skate Canada NCCP Certified Coach with the help of our trained program assistants.
To enroll in the Junior program, skaters age 10 and under, must be working on CanSkate badge Level 4 to 6. They will also be working on StarSkate, but will not have yet completed one full year in the Junior program.
They will be instructed by all OBFSC coaches and will start working on all the skills they need to Start the Star program.
Junior skaters have the option of booking private lessons to supplement their group instruction. To inquire about or set up private lessons click here. Parents will be billed directly by that coach for instruction time. Payment for extra ice will be to the club.
Star 1 - 4
To join the Star 1-4 program, skaters have generally spent a year in the Junior program and/or have been recommended into the Star 1-4 program by the coaching staff.
This session is the initial step into private or semi-private lessons.
NO Skate Canada tests must be passed. Skaters take part in all aspects of figure skating including dance, skills, and freeskate.
Star 1-4 skaters have the opportunity to take part in dry land training which includes a jump class once a week, edge classes, and an on-ice spin patch.
Star 5 and Up
To progress to the Senior Level skaters are expected to have passed the Star 5 freeskate test or asked to participate by the coaching staff.
This session is geared toward competitive and Star Skate skaters who are comfortable on a busy, fast-paced session. Senior skaters also take part in all off-ice training sessions, and are encouraged to continue with dance and skills.
