Junior Academy is a group lesson program for learning figure skating moves and techniques. It runs 10 weeks in the fall and winter, with some opportunities to skate in the spring. Many competitive figure skaters begin in this program before progressing to the our JuniorSTAR program and the different levels of Starskate. The Kamloops Skate Club (KSC), is a Skate Canada affiliated club and we are proud to offer their programs. Junior Academy has been designed to ease the transition between CANSkate and StarSkate. It is designed to fit with Sport Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) characteristics. Junior Academy is an introductory program to the world of figure skating. It is a 45 minute 1-3 times a week program, for better skill progression we recommend skating two or more times a week.
