Figure 8 Skating Club offers many events through out the season to compliment our programs and add to the skating experience. Here is what we have lined up for the season.
CanSkate Element Event
This event is for our learn to skate participants, including PreCanSkate, CanSkate and Adult/Teen Skate. Skaters test their skills on various elements, while a panel of coaches assess their performance. There is a fun zone on the ice while skaters are waiting their turn, and everyone receives a certificate and an opportunity for a picture on the red carpet! This event is included in your registration fees.

Team Building Party
This event is open to all our figure skaters, including PreSTAR, Adult/Teen LTFS and STARSkate. We kick off the season with a party in September/October and then have another one in March. Past parties include bowling, trampoline park, pumpkin carving, laser tag, painting pottery, etc. Skaters have fun, get to know each other and make new friends! Check your email for the party dates this season.
Family Fun Skate
The entire family is welcome at Family Fun Skate! This is a great event for parents, grandparents and siblings to take to the ice. Rumour has it that Santa may also lace up his skates and join us for the fun! We ask that all participants have a CSA approved helmet, unless they have passed CANSkate Stage 5. This is for insurance purposes, and is required for all skaters including adults, regardless of skating ability. This event is open to our entire membership and is included in your registration fees.

This is a showcase of our figure skaters, and is open to PreSTAR, Adult/Teen LTFS, and STARSkate. Each skater will perform their solo, and skaters who don’t have a solo yet will perform in a group number. Our skaters shine bright at this festive event, which follows directly after Family Fun Skate. This event is included in your registration fees and all families are invited to the show.

Our STARSkaters that are pursuing STAR levels 6 through Gold, are assessed by an Skate Canada evaluator on an Assessment Day. We typically hold three Assessment Days per season for these skaters. Note the STARSkaters that are in STAR 1 through 5, are assessed by coaches during their regular sessions.

This is our biggest event of the year and everyone is invited! Based on a theme, all our skaters perform in group numbers according to their session and/or level. Our STARSkaters also perform an additional number in duos/trios/quads and also contribute to the choreography! This event is a lot of fun and it is great to see all our skaters perform at this event at the end of the season. This event is included in registration fees.
