Award of Merit Certificate – Template Available
The Award of Merit certificate that is presented to a skater along with the gold pin once a gold level test certification has been achieved is now available in the Info Centre as a printable template. As Skate Canada is no longer mailing this award to our organizations for distribution to skaters, clubs/skating schools can now access this template by logging into info.skatecanada.ca and clicking on Programs > STARSkate Program > Award of Merit Certificate. Please note that the template for the Award of Merit certificate is available as an interim measure while the STARSkate Program is under review. Certificates for passing individual tests have been discontinued.
The gold test pins that accompany the Award of Merit remain available but must be requested by the club/skating school by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure to include the amount and type of gold test pin(s) needed.
Test Day Sheets
Visit the Skate Canada Info Centre to view the most current test sheets for all categories.
Online Test Entry
Test chairs who have administrative access to the Membership Site can now submit test results online. More information is available under Test Information in the Club and Skating School Administrator Handbook that is posted on the Skate Canada Info Centre.
AFTER COMPLETION OF A TEST DAY, IT IS REQUIRED TO DISTRIBUTE THREE COPIES OF THE SUMMARY SHEETS:
- Copy #1 – The Original Summary Sheets must be mailed to National Office within one (1) week of your Test Day with the cheque for the test fees. (Skate Canada National Office, Box 15, 261-1200 St. Laurent Blvd. Ottawa, ON K1K 3B8) Test chairs who have administrative access to the Membership Site can now submit test results online. Test summary sheets sent to Skate Canada will only be kept up to 90 days after the end of each fiscal year. Clubs can now enter the results for test days online by going to the Skate Canada website and following the prompts. As well, clubs can pay the test fees online. If entering the results online, clubs do not need to send a copy of the summary sheet to National Office. The only other requirement is to keep the original summary sheets for all the clubs attending the test day as well as sending a copy of the other club’s results to the appropriate club. It is no longer an expectation to send a copy of the test results to the section office and no longer an expectation to send a copy to Marg Andriuk.
- Copy #2 – An additional copy of the Summary Sheet should be sent to the Home Club(s) of participating skaters
- Copy #3 – The Host club must retain a copy of ALL the summary sheets, from all the Clubs attending the test day.
