The PreSTAR STARSkate program is an introduction to the fundamentals of figure skating for CanSkaters between Badge 4 and Badge 6.

Upon their coach’s recommendation, a CanSkater can register for an accelerated combined CanSkate-PreStar program. This combined program offers the CanSkater early exposure to the fundamentals of figure skating while they are still progressing to their Badge 6 in their CanSkate session.

Early introduction to these fundamentals allow skaters to master edges, crossovers, stronger backward skating, agility, speed and endurance.

Private coaching is also available for the PreSTAR program.
