Become an Official

Individuals interested in becoming an official must attend Skate Canada approved clinics,  gain practical experience and pass both a written and video identification exam at each level. Each official's role has specific pathway steps that must be completed to obtain Skate Canada qualifications. For Judges, Evaluators and Technical Officials each discipline of skating, whether that be singles, pair, dance, and synchronized skating requires individualized training. Individuals with a former skating background and a passion to give back to the sport are encouraged to reach out for more information on official's training opportunities.
