For everyone
One of the skating parents of the Capital City Skating Club wrote an excellent resource for those who are new to the sport of figure skating or those who want to know a bit more about our sport and our club. Skating handbook FINAL

Canadian Sport for Life – Long Term Athlete Development Resources
The implementation of Canada’s Sport for Life – Long Term Athlete Development model is continuing across the country. As all national sport organizations work towards the development and implementation of their sport specific models, the LTAD Expert Group continues to develop some excellent generic resource material.

Choreography
For information about one of the other important pieces of a skater’s package, the choreographer, please see the following document about choreography at the Capital City Skating Club.

For Pre-Juniors and Juniors:

  • Pre-Junior Skaters and their parents may be interested in more information about private lessons for further advancement. A handout was given out to some of those skaters last winter, and a copy can be downloaded here.
  • New Pre-Junior and Junior skaters may feel a bit lost out on the ice with the other figure skaters the first little while after spending most of there skating time with the Canskaters. Going over some of the pointers in the CCSC Skating Guide handbook above would help them adjust more quickly and safely. Be sure to also go over the On Ice Rules with your skater.

  • The Members Only Section of the Skate Canada website is an excellent resource for testing requirements, dance and skills patterns and competition technical package information.
  • Skate Canada New Brunswick Section’s website has information for those skaters competing at provincial competitions.
