Junior Academy, formerly known as Introduction to Figure Skating. Is a bridging program suited for skaters who have successfully completed CanSkate Stage 3 or equivalent.

Skaters entering Junior Academy receive specialized instruction for figure skating in a small group setting. 

STARSkate offers opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance,  skills, free skate and artistic skating. Unique in Canada, this program teaches figure skating skills in a group and/or private lesson format in a progressive and sequential manner and includes specifically designed awards and incentives. Skaters have the opportunity to take Skate Canada Assessments through a nationally standardized assessment system. Skaters who have mastered figure skating skills in STARSkate may also choose to pursue synchronized skating, pairs skating, ice dance and competitive singles.

PowerSkate is Canada's only nationally regulated NCCP power skating program. PowerSkate is designed to focus on the development of 15 basic skill sets divided into three fundamental areas: Balance, Control and Agility.
