Once passed the Junior Bronze Free Skating Test, skaters move to the Intermediate program where they work towards their Intermediate tests. Skaters continue to work with the professional coach of their choice taught in group and/or private lesson format. The skater continues to work in the following disciplines: Interpretive, Dance, Free Skating, and Skating Skills.
After successfully completing the Senior Bronze test, skaters skate in the Senior Program. At a higher level, skaters work towards their Senior tests striving towards Gold in all disciplines.
In addition to Senior tests, skaters can work towards Competitive tests. Skaters who show potential as competitive skaters can move into Competitive Skate competing at provincial and possibly national events.
- complimentary Gold Test pins
- access to invitational and Interclub competitions, including the new national Interclub championship stream
- opportunities to participate in local and provincial competitions
- opportunity to participate in the Club’s annual ice show

STARSkate Enhancement Sessions
This season the FWFSC is introducing some new “Skater Development” initiatives for our Starskate members that will be extremely beneficial for their development and progress in our sport. The Tuesday Enhancement Program is included in the fees for all Junior, Intermediate and Senior skaters and will feature on ice components. Coaches will be focusing on BASIC SKATING SKILL DEVELOPMENT on the ice including exercises to improve speed, power, edge quality, turns, body control & positioning and flexibility.
We hope that you all will embrace and participate in this initiative as we strive towards excellence in & for our skaters!!

Our Club has an Affiliation Fee of $200 for all SkarSkate members (Star2-4, Star 5 to Gold/Competitive Skaters) and $100 for all Pre-Star (Pre-Junior) Members. As Bingos are one of our major contributors to our ice fees, over half of our ice fees are paid through our Bingo program. Our Affiliation fee consists of a separate cheque made payable to the FWFSC given at the time of registration. This cheque allows for the parent or guardian to either work a minimum of two bingos or to have their cheque cashed by the club at the end of the skating season. Please contact our Bingo Chair for more information firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please note in regards to Bingos:
i) Before you work a bingo, you must attend the bingo training provided by OLG. The training is a presentation done by an OLG employee.
ii) All club members will be emailed one week in advance of each scheduled bingo with the names of the volunteers scheduled to work. If a volunteer has a conflict, it is the responsibility of the volunteer to notify one of the Bingo Co-Chairs by email immediately.
iii) Bingo volunteers are required to provide 24-48 hours notice if they are unable to work their scheduled bingo. If the volunteer does not notify one of the Bingo Co-Chairs by email 24-48 hours in advance, a $50.00 fine will be applied.
iv) All bingo volunteers must be over the age of 18 as the bingo hall is run by OLG and no one under the age of 18 years old is permitted in the building.
