SR Academy

SR Academy

SR Academy is a figure skating program for skaters working on STAR 5 to Gold or Pre-Juvenile to Senior Competitive. Coaches work with skaters and families to customize a training program for the individual athlete to help them achieve their goals. Open ice time is booked and skaters pay coaches directly for private, semi-private, and group lessons. It is recommended that skaters skate at least 3 times a week for STAR and 5 days a week for competitive.

STAR 6- Gold is an assessment and event structure for skaters who completed the STAR 1-5 Program. This structure builds on the skills acquired in STAR 1-5 and introduces skaters to more advanced figure skating elements.

Please speak to a New Heights Skating Coach for more information on the competitive program.

Figure skating has four disciplines that lead to a high performance pathway.

Singles: Single skating is a term used to describe the discipline of freeskate. Generally, this is the most recognized form of figure skating.

Pairs: Pair skating involves two individuals skating as a unit performing freeskating moves. Pair skating also includes lifts, death spirals and throws.

Ice Dance: Inspired by ballroom dancing, this discipline incorporates musicality, performances and athletisim to all your favourite rhythms.

Synchronized: Synchronized skating, or “synchro” is a specialized discipline of skating involving groups of eight or more skaters performing various group formations and maneuvers. The objective is for the team to perform as one unit executing circles, blocks, lines, wheels and intersections in unison to the music, while demonstrating quality edges, power and flow. Synchronized Skating categories accommodate skaters at any age and skill level.
