Junior Figure Skating Program Expectations
During the Junior Figure Skating program skaters are taught the first part of the Preliminary Free Skate elements. Skaters learn elements in FreeSkate Levels I, II and III which include rotational jumps, spins with multiple revolutions, field movements, stroking and all edges.
By the end of this program skaters will have learned half of the required elements for their Preliminary Free Skate Test and can expect to be prepared to continue to the Intermediate Figure Skating program after three seasons in the program if they are skating twice a week.
Junior Figure Skating Program Delivery
This program is taught in small classes by certified figure skating coaches with about a 1:5 coach to skater ratio. Every class will begin with a 10 minute stroking lesson. During these classes coaches may for certain periods of the session choose to work with a few skaters semi-privately while the other skaters practice on their own and then switch this around. In some classes skaters may have more than once coach during the session.
Junior Figure Skating Program Prerequisites
The Junior Figure Skating program is for skaters that have completed Pre Star Level 6 (Stage 6 or the equivalent). All skaters must have proper figure skates and proper figure skating attire to participate in this program.
Junior Figure Skating Program Assessment
Skaters in the Junior Figure Skating program are assessed informally every class to see what elements they can perform at a satisfactory level and consistent level by their principal coach and what areas skaters need improvement on.
Once a skater can perform an element at least 5 times consistently with fair to good execution the coach will check mark this element on the skater's progress sheet which can be viewed by parents online. This formal assessment takes place at least once a month.
