Competitions are open to any Skate Canada member who meets the criteria for any of the categories available at that competition. Coaches will usually decide with the skater if they are competition ready and at which level they should be competing at. There is no set rule on how many competitions a skater should enter for a season. Competitions are a good way to track your progress, but skaters who choose not to compete can still develop their figure skating skills through the StarSkate program.
