On Ice Development

Set to standards, these classes will incorporate all areas of a skaters development on the ice. Content will include variations of the following: Creative Edge Class, Basic Skating & Stroking, Jump & Spin Enhancement and Performance Skills.

All classes will offer both technical and well as practical application of various exercises that will enhance the development of each of the above areas. Development/group Classes are taught in a group environment providing an hour of coaching tuition within the class. Not only do these classes provide enhanced coaching time, but the group environment also provides a highly motivational approach to lessons.

Fees for freeskate include ice costs only. On and off-ice Development, spin, group and theory sessions include coaching fees. Coaches will invoice all participants for their individual lessons. Private lessons must be pre-arranged with the coach of choice prior to booking ice sessions.

Off Ice Conditioning

Stretch Class
(Bronze - Top Flight) Kamillah Sturton, our current club ballet instructor, will work with the skaters each week in order to strengthen their resistance and flexibility while maintaining safe and controlled postures. Each week will build upon the next, with the goal of having the skaters move beautifully while developing the flexibility in the shoulders, back and hips necessary for figure skating positions. 

(Bronze – Top Flight)The most essential of all our off ice classes offered, Kamillah Sturton will continue her theme of stretch and poise through her classical training of ballet. Any skater hoping to stay injury free and perform beautifully on the ice needs to set their foundation of ballet training at a very young age. 

Dance Class
(Bronze – Top Flight) Former national figure skater, Michelle Lee, brings a mixture of hip hop and contemporary dances to the class each week in order to broaden participants' range of motion and heighten their awareness of overall performance.

 Dry Land Jumping
(Bronze - Top Flight) A mixture of rotational exercises, positioning work and skating specific movement patterns.  Dryland Jumping is a key off ice class for any skater in order to be technically efficient on the ice. 

Strength and Conditioning
(Silver - Top Flight) The purpose of this class, designed and taught by by Maki Riddington (, is to develop and maintain the core strength and conditioning necessary for peak skating performance. Healthy strength development and sport specific exercises allow our athletes to train the high technical demands while keeping injury to a minimum.  Maki Riddington has worked with our coaching team and our top athletes for more than 5 years.

The following fully completed forms must be submitted when registering:

Competitive Skaters MUST be registered with Skate Canada by August 31, therefore registrations need to be received by the club no later than August 25, of any given year.

Please keep in mind that there are no refunds or credits after the first day of skating. Changes (switches) to existing registrations may be made until the end of the 2nd week of the session. After that, sessions may be added at a prorated price, but no cancellations or transfers will be allowed. Prorating will not commence until the 3rd week of the session.


Important things to note:

·Communicate with your respective coaches on the sessions that you are signing up for.

·Please ensure that registration is completed before skating. This includes online registration and payment, and submission of Volunteer form and cheque

·An instalment payment option may be offered during the online registration process for registrations totalling over a specified amount

Lastly, registration changes will be accommodated only until the date specified at the start of each session. Please AVOID multiple changes/modifications to already registered sessions as it creates unnecessary, time-consuming rework.
