Skate Canada Assessments and Tests


When a StarSkater is ready for assessment or to try a test, their coach will let them know. The skaters on Star 1-5 level will be initially assess by their coach during their regular session time. The fee for the assessment is $12.00 plus a $3.00 administrative fee.
 
Star 6 and up tests will be judge by a Skate Canada official Test Judge during test days. There is a fee of $12.00 for the test which is paid to Skate Canada to record the skaters progress and a $15.00 hospitality fee. In addition, you will pay for your coach on test day as well as a partner if required. The hospitality fee covers the cost of food, transportation, cost of ice and other incidentals. The judges are volunteers and do not receive any compensation for the time they spend at test days or competitions and it is important to show them our hospitality.
 
Fee envelopes will be distributed by the skater’s coach and must be handed in prior to taking the test or assessment.
 
The test is a formal process, with specific etiquette to be followed. Skaters on test day are required to arrive one hour prior to their scheduled test times, in costume and ready to skate. Spectators are welcome, and are expected to behave with decorum, respecting the judge’s need to focus on the skaters, and the skaters’ need to focus on the test. After the test, the judge will provide each skater with a written assessment and a pass/re-try grade. A skater who is unsuccessful at a test is permitted to re-try the test at a future test day. Not showing up for a test after it has been scheduled is marked as a re-try.
 
Test days require cancellation of some regularly scheduled sessions, though an effort is made to minimize this disruption. For test day, skaters usually wear their competition or dance dresses, however, a skating skirt and nice top are also acceptable. Their hair is expected to be pulled back away from their face or up in a ponytail or bun so that their facial expressions can be seen. Skaters are not required to try their dance tests in dance dresses however it is recommended for skaters who are working on their Star6 and higher dances.
