What is S.T.A.R.S.?
S.T.A.R.S. (Standardized Testing of Athleticism to Recognize Skaters) is a U.S. Figure Skating program designed to standardize testing of the athletic abilities that support development of on-ice skills. The goals of S.T.A.R.S. are to promote the athletic development of our athletes and keep them safe and injury resistant by training their bodies ahead of the on-ice skills curve.

What’s included with the Program?
Registration includes an assessment, educational seminar, S.T.A.R.S. t-shirt and detailed report at the end of the season to track the athlete’s personal improvement and comparative statistics for each test level.
Past S.T.A.R.S. participants will have the opportunity to compare previous scores and see how their athleticism has improved over the years. New participants can use S.T.A.R.S. scores to see how they compare with skaters across the nation and to determine how they can improve. All participants are invited to attend this year’s educational workshop, “Taking S.T.A.R.S. to the Ice,” relating athleticism and athletic ability learning and performing on-ice skills.
