My daughter skates with the Bishop Allen Cardinals and we come every year from Toronto/Etobicoke area.

Description of Event

Based on the successful high school figure skating event model currently used in 3 school districts in Eastern Ontario and Quebec since 2001, this invitational is a team competition, in which skaters compete in individual and team events, earning team points that will determine an overall high school team winner. Medals and a team trophy will be awarded.

High schools from across the Western Ontario Section are cordially invited to participate in this event, the first of its kind in this area. Schools will field a team of minimum 2 to a maximum of 12 figure skaters currently enrolled as full-time students from Grades 9-12, who are members of a local Skate Canada club.

Coaching/Training of Teams

Events currently included in the competition are those which can be practiced individually. As team members will already be actively skating/training at their own Skate Canada club, additional coaching or training within the school is not mandatory.


Skate Canada members are covered under the Skate Canada Group Accidental Insurance policy. School staff and/or parent volunteers involved with the event would be covered under the normal School Board Insurance coverage for out-of-school activities.

What Does a High School Figure Skating Competition Do for Students and Schools?

  • Provides incentive for teenaged skaters to remain active in a positive activity while promoting a healthy lifestyle. Last year there were over 1000 registered high school aged figure skaters in Ontario.
  • Provides skaters the opportunity to represent their school.
  • Builds self-esteem, gives recognition to skaters as athletes among their school peers.
  • Encourages high school figure skaters to continue in their chosen sport - and consider pursuing varsity skating.
  • This event is a team competition, in which both test level and competitive level skaters compete in individual and team events, earning team points that will determine an overall winning high school team.
  • By creating an opportunity for high school skaters to be recognized by their peers within the school, similar to football, basketball and track athletes, Skate Canada Western Ontario and Skate Canada hope to encourage teenage figure skating athletes to continue on in the sport they enjoyed as children and to promote overall active living through to adulthood.
