STARSkate participants love to compete! Our feedback indicates that even though a skater may choose not to participate in the Skate Canada CompetitiveSkate Program, they still want the opportunity to test their skill in a competition situation. Skate Canada offers several opportunities to do this
Once registered for a competition, you will receive a schedule and important times for the day. Please find your skater’s event(s) and time(s) and plan to arrive 1 hour prior to your first skate time. Coaches will find you in your assigned dressing rooms, and complete a short off-ice warm up, prior to putting skates on.
Please have your hair neatly tied back out of your face (even under helmets). Juniors are encouraged to wear a skating dress and a black sweater or club jacket and black mini gloves.
Advanced Canskaters, if you do not have a dress, that is totally fine. Wear a pair of black leggings or slim fitting pants and a black sweater (with layers underneath), or slim fit coloured sweater and black gloves.
Boys can wear your black pants, club jackets and black gloves. You can wear a button up shirt underneath your club jacket if you choose (and another tshirt layer underneath wouldn’t hurt for extra warmth).
All skaters are encouraged to arrive at the arena dressed and ready, as this will be a busy day. Please remember to check in at registration when you arrive, bring your runners, skates and guards.
If you have any questions, please let us know. Competitions are always a super fun day!
