STARSkate Frequently Asked Questions
Which STARSkate level should skaters register in?
How will training and coaching work in the STARSkate program?
What should I do if my skater is sick or will miss a session?
Please contact our Skating Director or your skater's coach when your child is sick. Preferably, you can email or text coaches directly. If you have not yet exchanged contact information with your coach, you can email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org (please give as much advance notice as possible, so we can forward the information to the coaches in a timely fashion).
What should I expect for costs when my skater participates in STARSkate?
What is the role of the parent?
I don't understand what my skater is doing out there. How do I learn more?
What are these skating elements that I keep hearing about?
It takes time to learn to recognize the various skills and elements that your athlete is learning to perform. Skate Canada has an excellent series of videos that show demonstrations of the various skills that each Star level has to complete.
I usually skate with another club, but I would like to buy on to sessions with MJSC. How do I do that?
Skaters from other clubs are welcome to buy on to Open Sessions at the non-member rate, as per the terms and conditions. If a non-club coach wishes to coach on that session, please make the request in writing to email@example.com at least 30 days in advance of the skating date, to ensure that the board of directors has time to consider the request.
