IFS (formerly Group STARSkate) is a group program designed for thoese skaters who wish to enter into the STARskate stream. This is a 1 hour program for skaters ages 7 to 13 years. Must have passed Stage 4 of the CanSkate program and no prelimenary tests. This program is lead by a NCCP Professional Coach. This program was created to help the bridge between CanSkate to STARSkate program. Skaters start with a group warm up and then move into 45 minute lesson time. Skaters will be introduced to dance patterns, skating skills, spins & jumps.
The last 15 mins is where the skaters learn to practice on their own and the Coach will see each skater and help skaters with skills they struggled with in the lesson. Our focus is to teach specific skills to figure skating with the overall goal of developing a strong set of basic skills needed for future success.
