MBSC will be offering Canskate, Starskate, and Senior programs for the 2020/21 Season
Maximum numbers will be enforced for each program – 20 Canskaters per session, 15 Starskaters, and 15 Seniors per session.
NEW - 2 sessions for Canskate will be offered on Wednesdays and Fridays to help limit our sessions to 20 skaters each. You can’t sign up for both time slots on one night. If you wish to skate on both Wednesday and Friday – please sign up for the same time slot on both nights to help with cohorting.
MBSC home skaters will get 1st priority for registration.
Senior skaters can sign up for a maximum of 3 nights at this time. If there is room, we will open it up for all 4 nights at a future date.
Additional spots/programs may become available when there are further updates related to COVID.
NEW for the 2020/21 Season - Only skaters that can get up off the ice without assistance, listen, and follow instructions are to be registered at this time.
The CanSkate program focuses on fun, participation and basic skill development. Skaters will earn ribbons, badges and other incentives as they learn fundamental skating skills.
Lessons are given in a group format and led by an NCCP certified professional coach. Trained program assistants assist Professional coaches during CanSkate sessions. Skater’s progress at their own rate and coaches make sessions active, using teaching aids, music and a wide variety of activities that create a fun environment and promote learning.
STARSKATE / SENIOR
Skills, Tests, Achievement, Recognition - this is what StarSkate is all about! StarSkate offers opportunities for skaters of all ages to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating. Skaters begin practicing their Preliminary Skills, Dances and FreeSkate test requirements.
The session is taught in a group format as skaters work with a dedicated coach and will start to work towards independent practice. Skaters who are in the StarSkate program may begin to look for their own private coach to further their skating development. Even if you have selected a private coach, skaters will still participate in the Group StarSkate teachings, that way your child can get comfortable with the format of the StarSkate program.
Synchronized skating, or “synchro” is a specialized discipline of skating involving groups of eight or more skaters performing various group formations and maneuvers. The objective is for the team to perform as one unit executing circles, blocks, lines, wheels and intersections in unison to the music, while demonstrating quality edges, power and flow.
The Magic Blades are proud to have five teams this season: Beginner 1, Pre-Juvenile, Juvenile, Pre-Novice and Blades N'Sync Adult 2 team. All five teams are coached by Chrissy Kernaghan.
