PreSTARSkate is a transition program for skaters passed stage 2 of the CanSkate program to learn the basics of figure skating, while continuing to learn the stage 3-6 CanSkate skills.

PreSTARSkate classes are 1 hour long, which includes 45 minutes of group lesson time with a coach and 15 minutes of independent practice time. The independent practice time allows skaters to learn how to practice effectively when they are not in a lesson. This is a necessary skill for when they move into the STARSkate program.

It is recommended that PreSTARSkaters skate 2-3 days/week.
