What are the minimum skills required?

Pre-Juvenile Team: This team will consist of 8-16 skaters who have not reached the age of 12 as of July 1, 2018.  Skaters have preferably passed Star 1.

Juvenile Team: This team will consist of 8-16 skaters who have not reached the age of 15 as of July 1, 2018. Skaters have preferably passed Star 3.

 

What happens during the auditions?

The coaches assess your child’s skating skills by watching her/him perform skating skills such as edges, turns, forwards and backwards stroking and field move elements such as spirals. Your child will be made to feel welcome and comfortable.

 

Will Synchro distract from singles skating?

Not at all.  Our synchro program is an add on, meaning you are still required to continue with your single skating. Synchro skating focuses on developing edges, power and flow which will enhance your skating skills.

 

How much does it cost to skate with the team for a season?

There is a set fee that is determined depending on the number of skaters who are on the team. The fees cover all ice time, coaching, off-ice practices, competitions, dresses, uniforms, team functions, etc. There are also additional costs associated with competitions, such as meals and hotels. Payments are made on a schedule (lump sum payment is possible if preferred). Fee information is given out at the auditions.

 

How many practices are there each week?

 2 practices on ice and off-ice practice per week.

Spring (May-June)

To be determined.

Fall-Winter (September – March)

To be determined.

Note: Practices are currently held at East York Memorial Arena (Wednesday) and Commander Arena (Sundays)
