Competitions For StarSkate Athletes
StarSkate participants love to compete! Our feedback indicates that even though a skater may choose not to participate in the Skate Canada Podium Pathway Program, they still want the opportunity to assess their skill in a competition situation. Skate Canada offers several opportunities to do this.
Clubs offer competitions for their own members to compete against each other. The club determines the categories which generally follow Skate Canada StarSkate guidelines (e.g. length of program, category name, type of event offered, etc.) The club may also offer other creative events such as longest shoot-the-duck, similar pairs, spins and jumps, etc.)
StarSkate Interclub Competitions
These are events involving a number of clubs in the same region or area. The competition categories offered generally fall in line with the applicable Skate Canada Section specifications, so that all Interclubs within the Section are standardized (this allows Skate Canada Sections to offer a Section Final). The StarSkate Championship program provides opportunities for skaters who want to remain in the StarSkate program but also want to have the challenge of competing up to a Sectional level in a credible, nationally standardized event.
These are events coordinated by a Section or Club(s) and offered, generally, to StarSkaters and competitive skaters. Most events fall within Skate Canada’s specifications regarding program length and eligibility to compete. For more information contact the hosting Section or club.
