FALL 2022 / WINTER 2023 STARSKATE PROGRAM REGISTRATION

posted Aug 28, 2022, 9:28 PM

Dear families,

we are excited to announce that the registration to IESC Fall 2022/ Winter 2023 StarSkate program is now open!

Please follow a link to the STARSkate Parent Newsletter and read below about the classes offered and upcoming events.

With multiple days of On-Ice Training to chose from this season, you can match your skaters aspirations to the right level of training and commitment. Once you choose the day(s), the registration is for the entire Fall/ Winter season.  

Mondays, 4 - 5:30pm StarSkate

It is also recommended for all STARSkaters to participate in our accompanying Dryland Training program. The package works like a membership, valid for the full Fall and Winter session. StarSkaters are encouraged to attend even if not skating on those days.

Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, 5:45 - 6:15pm

Sundays, 12 - 1pm

Dry land benefits skaters immensely. It gives the coaches an opportunity to walk skaters through the proper techniques in jumps and other elements so that they are able to execute them easier on ice. These sessions will also offer goal setting sessions, nutrition education and other strength building sessions to help our athletes lead a healthy, positive lifestyle. 

Extra Morning Ice Training is also available for StarSkaters who desire extra edges, jumps and spins training. Coaching and ice time is included in registration fees.

Wednesdays, 6:30 - 7:30am

Fridays, 6:30 - 7:30am

Please keep in mind that the Long Term Athlete Development Plan (LTADP) from Skate Canada recommends the following:

7-11 years old: skate 2-4 days a week, 30-40 weeks a year

9-13 years old: skate 4-5 days a week, 1-2 sessions a day, 40-46 weeks a year

10-16 years old: skate 5 days a week, 2-3 sessions a day, 44-48 weeks a year

So choose a training schedule that can help your skater train the recommended number of hours, with the support of coaches who know exactly how to inspire and motivate them!

CanPowerSkate is an action-packed, high energy instructional power skating program geared to hockey and ringette skaters that focuses on balance, power, agility, speed and endurance. Skills, techniques and conditioning drills are taught in a progressive format that emphasizes how the skills apply to game situations. Skaters must be 6 years old or older to register.

The classes will be taught by coach Candice Campbell-Behm who has been a professional skating coach since 1998.

Candice completed a Bachelor of Science degree, a physical education diploma and personal fitness trainer certificate. She is a national certified coach and chartered professional coach with Skate Canada and has coached at Nationals, Provincials, the AB Winter Games and a team lead for Western Canadians. Candice is also a personal fitness trainer at the Glencoe Club.

Candice specializes in skating skills, edge work and agility and has mentored off coaches who were former players from various NHL teams. Her eye for the mechanics and edges forms from her years of being a competitive athlete and over 20 yeas of coaching experience. 

Candice works with players ranging from Learn to Skate to players in Junior and college  and has over 2000 hours of experience with preschool aged children which has helped her design a program that effectively teaches the fundamental of go forward and backwards, turns and stop that is customized for the level on the ice so athletes build a foundation of skating skills. She believes eventually fast forward skating catches up to a player. What separates a great hockey player from a good hockey player is skating skills.

Candice believes:

  • skating skills should always be worked on throughout the periodization of a hockey player's training;
  • in helping athletes achieve their goals in a positive environment that pushes the athlete to become the best version of them self.

Candice has volunteered with Community hockey as the Timbits coordinator and for 6 years with Novice to Pee Wee evaluations. She has been a league chair with Hockey Calgary for 3 years and with the Macs Midget for 2 years and the Canada Games.
