  • Frequently Asked Questions


    Competitive STARSkate

    Can I register for off-ice classes if I am a non homeclub member?

    Classes are for homeclub STARSkate/Competitive skaters between the ages of 5-20 or with board approval.

    How does my child register in the figure skating program?

    The first thing to do is learn to skate - the CanSkate program prepares skaters for all types of ice sports. If your child shows an interest in continuing in figure skating, talk to a club coach. Every child must be assessed before entering the figure skating stream of our club. If you are already a member of our club the best way to stay informed of your child's readiness is to speak to your coach. If you are interested in joining our club from another club or program please email info@killarneyskatingclub.com for assessment dates and availability.

    What is proper figure skating attire?

    The more experienced skater should wear a skating dress or skirt with warm tights, bodysuit or warm-up pants. The male skaters should wear straight-legged stretch pants and sweater. This enables the coach to see proper body positions. Gloves should be worn for practices and warm ups. Long hair needs to be tied back.
