The Rising STARS program is designed for skaters who have previously skated with the Academy and who have completed their Stages 1 through 3.


The program is also referred to as, our “Advanced Canskate” program focussing on stage 4 to 6 Badges or for skaters identified within the Canskate program by the Professional Coaches who show a natural talent and would benefit from being placed into a more advanced session.


Skaters and parents will be notified by the Lead Coach at their session if their child has shown advanced learning skills and would fit into this program. In the Rising STARS program, the skaters will be placed into groups according to their level and be taught exclusively by Professional Coaches. This program is meant get skaters to achieve their Canskate levels at a quicker pace to have them move onto either the STARskate program for figure skating or the CanPowerskate/Hockey Fundamentals programs for hockey.
