 Assessment Day Information

  • Assessing is a very important part of a Skaters development. It measures their progress and allows them to see the results of their hard work
  • There are a number of assessment days throughout the season
  • Your coach will decide which assessment your child is prepared for and will advise you when a assessment is being put into an assessment day
  • The assessment fee for Skate Canada is $12 and there may be a small additional charge to help pay for a “thank you” gift and/or expenses for the evaluator.
  • The skater must be dressed appropriately, hair neatly tied back, no holes in tights, skates clean and wear a dress for assessment
  • The skater must be at the arena at least 45 minutes prior to the scheduled assessment time as the assessment day may run ahead


Coach Assessed Tests will be assessed by your child's own coach. The will evaluate the child on an assessment session or during their regular practice sessions. There is a $12 Skate Canada fee for this assessment and you will receive an assessment sheet with marks.

The Star 6- Gold  assessments are evaluated by one person (an Evaluator) who assesses a skater’s proficiency against a standard using a word scale (Bronze, Silver and Gold) identifying skills performed well and those requiring further development. Your skater will have a warm up and then skate the assessment (in the case of a dance assessment it may possibly be with a partner). They will shortly afterwards receive a report card with their marks and feedback. You will need to start a file at home and keep all these reports stored in a safe place in case we need to reference them in the future. Your skater will then be ready to work on new skills.


All evaluators are volunteers. They receive no remuneration for their work but are reimbursed for their expenses. It takes many years to train as an evaluator and not many people can give so freely of their time. As a result of this, we have a chronic shortage of evaluators. Because of this problem, it is often necessary for clubs to hold their assessment days in the daytime or in conjunction with other clubs.
