Assessments STAR 1-5

 

STAR 1-5 is the official "learn to figure skate" program of Skate Canada. It covers the content outlined in the Learn to Train stage of development which is identified as "the golden age of learning". The Ingersoll Skating Club offers this program to support all of our skaters using the Skate Canada Standards.  

  • Testing at this level is done by our Coaching Team on lesson ice.
  • Parents will be notified by the Coaching Team that a skater is ready to test.
  • There is an administrative fee of $12 per test that is required by Skate Canada.
  • Payment of these tests can be made via e-transfer at [email protected] or with cash/cheque before the test is administered.
  • All of our skaters results are submitted to Skate Canada online and are tracked with our skater through their name and number.

There are different categories that your skater can work towards:

  •  STAR 1-5 Skills
  •  STAR 1-5 Freeskate Elements
  •  STAR 1-5 Freeskate Programs
  •  STAR 1-5 Dance
  •  STAR 1-5 Artistic
  •  STAR 1-5 Synchronized Skating (coming soon)

These are exciting milestones for our skaters and we love celebrating them with you.  They are also preparing for their next levels in assessment which are STAR 6-Gold Assessment Days.  These are done with a Skate Canada Evaluator from our area.

Assessments STAR 6-Gold

 

STAR 6-Gold is the official Learn to Compete stage of development of Skate Canada.  At the beginning of every season Ingersoll Skating Club and Dorchester Skating Club work together to schedule Assessment Day opportunities for our skaters.

  • Testing at this level is done by a Skate Canada Evaluator on ice assigned for this purpose (not during a regular lesson)
  • Coaches will monitor, prepare and make a final list for the Assessment Day two weeks before the date.
  • Parents will be notified by the Assessment Coordinator that a skater is ready to test and is invited with a schedule and list of tests for assessment that day.
  • There is a fee of $20 per assessment ($12 payable to Skate Canada per test that is required, plus additional fees associated with bringing an Evaluator to our club)
  • There is an additional $10 “Guest Skating” fee for a skater who is welcomed into our Assessment Day without skating in a regular session at the Host Club. (This is only applied once per Assessment Day despite how many tests are being attempted)
  • All Payments must be received 7 days before scheduled test dates. After this we have enacted a no refund policy so that we can submit the final schedule with Evaluator*
  • All of our skaters results are submitted to Skate Canada online and are tracked with our skater through their name and number.
* Exemptions - In cases of withdrawal due to unforeseen circumstances, the Skate Canada fee is to be waived
