Skate Canada STARSkate (Skill * Test * Achievement * Recognition):


The Skate Canada STARSkate program offers opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop figure skating skills in the areas (disciplines) of Freeskate, Artistic, Ice Dance, and Skating Skills.

Each discipline is divided into STAR 1 - STAR 10/Gold Tests.


Unique to Canada, this program teaches figure skating skills in a progressive and sequential manner. Skaters may be taught in group and/or private lesson format, and may choose to take tests and participate in competitions throughout the year.

The STARSkate program at the Port Coquitlam Skating Club is structured in a private or semi-private lesson format, providing skaters of all ages and levels with the opportunity to advance their skating skills. Unlike the CANSkate and Shining Stars Academy Programs, STARSkate session fees are for ice time only – skaters receive private or semi-private lessons from one of our coaching team, and are billed directly by the coach for these lessons.

 *In order to compete, skaters at this level

 must participate in at least 3 skating sessions per week.

10% discount offered to STARSkate & Competitive skaters who register for 4 or more sessions per week.
