Star Skate Program

What is the Rinks Artistic Skating Team & Star Skate Program?

The Rinks Artistic Skating Team (RAST) is a new approach to artistic roller skating! Unlike most programs in the United States, ours is class based. From first steps to double axels, students will train primarily in group settings. This style of training provides skaters with a better sense of comradery and parents a more affordable alternative throughout their athletes careers.

Students brand new to skating begin in our Star Skate Program, a 30 minute class followed by 30 minutes of off skates fun! As they progress through the four levels of this program, they learn body awareness and master foundational skills that they will use for life! This program is a variation of the USA Roller Sports Star Program. It has been modified to help students progress quickly and more efficiently through their fundamental skills.

If your student has prior experience in skating (roller or ice), we strongly encourage you to sign them up for a skills assessment prior to the start of the program so that they begin in the appropriate class level for their skill set. Please email Skating School Lead Candice Clifford at cclifford@therinks.com to schedule time for a 20-minute assessment.

Personal skates, quad or inline are HIGHLY recommended, as rental skates are limited in size and availability.

Where Should New Skaters Start?

Tots (Ages 4-6)

We will have a modified level 1 class purely for our Tots, comprised of new skaters ages 4-6. If you have an advanced tot please schedule an assessment (see below for details) to see if they are ready for the true Level 1 experience. Exceptions to the age rule will only be made by assessment.

Register for Tot Classes
Youth (Ages 6-12)

 Students ages 6-12 should register for Level 1. If your skater has prior skating experience (ice or roller), you can sign them up for an assessment (see below for details)!

Students can take a level as many times as they wish; they may only proceed to a higher level by passing the testing at the end of the previous level or by assessment.

Adults (Ages 13+)

Adults, students aged 13+ should register for the Sunday Adult Basic class. There will be no testing requirement in the adult class.
