Preliminary is for skaters who want to continue in figure skating. It is strongly recommended that they skate at least two days a week. They will learn edges, turns, jumps and spins. Once a skater moves up to the Preliminary level, they will need a professional coach to oversee their development and testing, and guide them through participating in local competitions. To qualify for this program, skaters MUST have completed CanSkate Level 5 AND be evaluated by one of our Preliminary conveners. All skaters must wear figure skates. These sessions consist of a warm-up, three 10-minute group lessons, and free time to practice skills learned, or for private lessons.
NOTE: To qualify for the Preliminary session pricing outlined in our brochure, skaters must register for at least two weekly sessions. The price for just one weekly Preliminary session is a bit higher (see Pricing section for details). Unfortunately, our online registration system is not able to assign the right fee in these cases, so an invoice adjustment will need to be made, and you will receive confirmation to that effect by email.
