MJSC Team Training and Open Sessions

 

Team Training

During Team Training sessions, coaches will be assigned to the various levels of skaters (Bronze, Silver, and Gold) by the Skating Director.  The ratio of skaters to coaches will be no more than 10:1. Skaters rotate from one coach to another during their one hour lesson and therefor receive a full hour of coaching. Skaters tend to progress quickly in this environment, staying motivated while developing great friendships. The registration fee covers all coaching costs during Team Training sessions.

Open Sessions

On Open session, skaters can expect a combination of private coaching and self-directed practice.  Skaters will be assigned a coach by the Skating Director.  This coach will usually give a 15 minute lesson to the skater at some time during the Open session.  The coach will charge the skater directly for that lesson. Fees will vary, based on the coaching level and experience of the coach. It is important for parents to meet with the coach to understand the payment schedule and to participate in setting goals for the skating season.

Training Levels

Skate Canada assesses skaters using various testing criteria.  The Moose Jaw Skating Club uses these levels to ensure that skaters of similar skills are on the ice at the same time. The following breakdown is used to determine skater registrations:

  • Bronze sessions - working on Star 1 or 2 freeskate
  • Silver sessions - working on Star 3, 4, or 5 freeskate
  • Gold sessions -  working on Star 6 and over, and/or older than 14 years of age
  • Competitive session - competing at Sectionals or Winter Classic in Pre-Juvenile, Juvenile, Pre-Novice, Novice, Junior, or Senior categories
