Figure Skating Programs

Figure Skating programs are for our CBS skaters who have completed all their levels in CanSkate (in our Learn to Skate programs).  These skaters enjoy skating and want to continue to learn new and more complex skating elements. 

CBS Skating Club's program categories are designed to suit the skill levels, experience, interests and ambitions of particular groups of skaters and reflect the program structure offered by Skate Canada nationally.

Skaters who enjoy skating and wish to pursue their interest after they have learned the basic elements with our Learn to Skate programs are encouraged to join our Figure Skating programs.  These programs are a natural progression after completing CanSkate and vary from recreational skating to Competitive Figure Skating on the provincial and national stage. This chart provides a quick overview.
