StarSkate + Competitive Skate Program
At our club, we utilize a team coaching model. This means that all skaters and coaches work closely with one another. This club concept creates an environment for all skaters to feel supported by everyone in their club. We pride ourselves in being a fun, supportive, and healthy skating club.
Parents are responsible for paying for ice fees, registration fees, and coaching fees. Coaching fees are charged in increments of time - generally 15/20/ or 30 minute lessons - which can be group or private. Group lesson costs are split amongst however many skaters are in the group. Private lessons are billed to the individual skater. Coaching rates differ as they are based on the individual coaches experience as a past skater, experience and years teaching, and coaching level (education) they have obtained with Skate Canada. Rates range between $7.00 - $15.00 for a 15 minute lesson. The amount/cost of lesson time desired is discussed with our skating director. Once registered, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details for the amount of lesson time you desire for your skater or to discuss a plan for them.
We accept students who would like to skate with our club that have done municipal or school skating, skaters transferring from another club, and new skaters that would like to join our club. Skaters will be assessed on ice by one of our coaches to help find the right program for each skater. Please contact us to set up an assessment at email@example.com. The fee for an assessment is $25. Please bring this fee when you come to the arena for your assessment.
