Bridge Program

The Woodbridge Figure Skating Club would like to invite your child to participate the new and exciting program which was launched September 2017.

The Bridge Program is geared towards our level 5 and 6 CanSkaters, as the program has been designed to promote an organic transition from the Skate Canada CanSkate program into the STARSkate Program. The Bridge Program will enhance, strengthen and assist in building a strong skating foundation as well as introduce some figure skating skills.

Each session will consist of 55 minutes of on ice training which will be led by music and begin with a warm up and end with a cool down. In between the warm up and cool down the skaters will focus on the following four areas; Stroking, Edges and Turns, Jumps and Spins/Field Movements/Stops. The Bridge Program will also offer a 15 minute off-ice training session which will focus on flexibility, agility, developing core strength, balance and power as well as technical dry-land jumping.

Your child will be assessed by the coaches during the CanSkate sessions and if your child has been identified as being an excellent candidate for this program and we will contact you via email to advise you that your skater is ready for the program. At this time, your skater may do both β€œThe Bridge” program, re-register for CanSkate only, or do a combination of both programs. Please note: proper figure skates are required.

The Woodbridge Figure Skating Club is very excited to bring this program to our club so that we may ease the transition for our athletes by building a strong foundation so they can successfully progress into the Skate Canada Star Program.

Note: A discount will be applied to The Bridge program, should a skater register for both Bridge sessions.
