What Level is my StarSkater?


In order to align with Skate Canada's new Star 1-Gold Levels, the Glencoe Skating Club has divided ice sessions by Skate Canada Test levels. Please find below the levels and requirements below.

STAR 1 (Preliminary)Group Lessons: A skater may move to STARSkate group figure skating lessons as early as completion of CanSkate Stage 5. Star 1 (Preliminary) STARSkaters will complete CanSkate Stage 6 in group figure skating lessons.

Preliminary skaters are taught figure skating skills in a fun, progressive and sequential manner.  They are taught in groups by nationally certified,  professional Skate Canada figure skating coaches in a fun and safe environment.
