STAR 1-4 Series

Skate Ontario is proud to announce the launch of  the STAR 1-4 Series calendar for the 2022-2023 season.

The structure of the competition calendar is based on Sport for Life and Skate Canada Long Term Development (LTD). Each stage of development has a focused set of principles that we have considered to maximize the growth and development of the Skate Ontario athletes on the Podium and STAR pathways. A balance between appropriate event timing, number of events, training time, and recovery time required for Learn to Train was carefully planned in the design of the 2022-2023 schedule.

The calendar was developed as part of an Annual Competition Calendar Review in collaboration with a Coach Focus Group to ensure Skate Ontario is meeting the objectives for competitions in Ontario. Click HERE for the full list of objectives for the annual competition review and Coach Focus Group.

The Annual Competition Calendar review included considerations regarding qualifying versus non-qualifying opportunities and a realistic approach to the number of events offered given ongoing COVID uncertainties.

As a result of the changes made to the Skate Canada calendar, Skate Ontario has updated the STAR 1-4 Series calendar to reflect changes:
