Intermediate Program  

Langley Skating Club’s Intermediate Program focuses on Skate Canada’s STAR 3 and 4 levels. Skaters must have passed their STAR 2 Program test to skate on an Intermediate session. Skaters within the Intermediate Program typically compete regionally and continue testing within the STARSkate program (tests and competitions are additional charges).  

Langley Skating Club’s Intermediate Program offers a Team Coaching environment, with a combination of private lessons, semi-private lessons, development classes, and off-ice training. Sessions offered include:

 

  • Freeskate Sessions – development of jumps, spins, program components, and solo choreography.  

  • Dance Sessions – development of skating technique, timing, accuracy, and musicality.  

  • Skills Sessions – development of turns, power, control, and field movements.  

  • Open Sessions – can train any of the above disciplines on open sessions.  

  • Development Sessions – development sessions are large group sessions with 100% coach- directed time and can focus on, but is not limited to training in; power, artistry, edges, turns, jump technique, cardio, field movements etc.  

  • Off-Ice Sessions – development of strength, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, jump technique, etc.  

 

It is highly recommended that Intermediate skaters skate on a combination of Freeskate sessions, Skills / Dance sessions, Development sessions and engage in Off-Ice sessions to train their craft in a holistic manner.
