Skate Canada Officials Pathway

Skate Canada has developed a document to assist individuals through the various steps of becoming a Skate Canada Official.  There are six main types of Officials within Skate Canada’s system; Judge, Technical Official, Technical Panel, Evaluator, Referee and Data Specialists.  Please click here to access the document as it will walk you through the process for each category.

Judges/Evaluators are former skaters. Candidates who wish to become qualified to judge/ evaluate, must attend Skate Canada approved clinics, trial judge and pass both a written and video identification exam at each level. Each discipline of skating, singles, pair, dance and synchronized skating requires individualized training.

Training will begin with attendance at a STAR 1-4 Judges Clinic.  Please contact the office if you are interested in attending a STAR 1-4 Judges Clinic.  Prerequistes for attendance include the successful completion of both the Skate Canada’s Code of Ethics – Officials, and Respect in Sport Activity Leader training.  Both can be found online.
