It’s that time again! All GSC STARskate and COMPSkate skaters are invited to participate in the club’s fitness assessments.

Why take part?: First, the results of these assessments inform the club’s programming – Working from the data, our off-ice classes are designed to best meet the needs of our skaters. Secondly, coaches use the data to track their skaters’ strengths and weakness. Third, this data allows coaches and trainers to apply the Long Term Athlete Development Model. This model provides a framework for athlete development best practices:
“Children, youth and adults need to do the right things at the right time to develop in their sport or activity – whether they want to be hockey players, dancers, figure skaters or gymnasts. Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) describes the things athletes need to be doing at specific ages and stages.” – Sport for Life

We need volunteers to make this happen!
Come volunteer while your child does the assessment
