SHINING STARS ACADEMY
Shining Stars Academy is an introductory figure skating program designed to assist young skaters (between the ages of 4 and 8 years old) with the transition from CANSkate to the Skate Canada STARSkate Program. Shining Stars Academy is taught by nationally trained Skate Canada NCCP certified professional coaches, in a small group format. This early figure skating program introduces skaters to the foundations of figure skating, and teaches skills for learning to train and practice for the sport. In addition to edges, turns, stops, spins, jumps, stroking drills, and field moves, skaters are introduced to warm-up drills, both on and off the ice, as well as skate care and equipment requirements.
