Junior Academy / Star Prep

The Junior Academy and Star Prep programs are a bridging program between CanSkate and STARSkate or Podium Pathway.  It is designed to fast track skaters from the CanSkate Program who are keen on furthering their figure skating skills. 

Junior Academy and Star Prep skaters are taught figure skating skills in a fun, progressive and sequential manner.  They are taught in small groups by nationally certified,  professional Skate Canada figure skating coaches in a fun and safe environment.

Skaters still follow the national Skate Canada CanSkate badge recognition program and are tested continuously by our the coaches.  After Junior Academy and Star Prep completion, skaters move on to either the STARSkate or the Podium Pathway programs.


Skating Attire:

For Junior Academy and Star Prep Programs (and all figure skating programs) we recommend: 

  • good quality, leather lace up figure skates - Jackson or Reidell Brands
  • no jeans are allowed.  Leggings or skating dresses / skirts with skating tights are preferred (for ease of body movement). 
  • hair must be tied up and away from the face.
  • sweaters that zip up for easy removal when skaters get too warm.  Hoodies are discouraged.
  • gloves
  • Skaters who have not passed Stage 5 of the CanSkate program are required to wear a helmet or Ice Halo.  Ice Halo's are head bands designed for concussion protection.  You can purchase these at
  • skate guards to protect blades when off the ice.
