Please find below, the process for coaches to become assessors for the STAR 6 to Gold Skills, that Skate Canada has recently introduced.
The process is very different from that, which coaches did for the STAR 1-5 several years ago.
The mentoring piece is a critical step in the adoption of the new skills and those who will be assessing them.
Test Chairs, please be mindful of seeing the Coach Assessor Designation, for any coach that is assessing STAR 6 to Gold Skills.
SCNS would like to remind all clubs and coaches to insure that the entire Skate Canada Nova Scotia Family is aware of the Skate Canada’s Code of Ethics, which can be found at info.skatecanada.ca under policies and has been included below.
SCNS would advise coaches and clubs distribute this to all members and remind parents that by having a child registered with Skate Canada, they too are included in the Code of Ethics, as stated under the scope.
The purpose of Skate Canada’s Code of Ethics is to outline the organization’s expectations and guiding principles for appropriate decision making and behaviour.
This code of ethics applies to all skaters, officials, coaches, employees, board members, volunteers, alumni, and hall of fame members of Skate Canada and its affiliate organizations. This code of ethics also applies to parents and guardians who participate in and observe related activities.
Code of Ethics
A. I will conduct myself in a manner that is of the highest standards, follows Skate Canada’s vision and mission, and is athlete-centered.
B. I will not participate in activities that are abusive or criminal. I will also not participate in activities that disrespect human rights or that risk the reputation of Skate Canada.
C. I will follow all of Skate Canada’s bylaws, policies, and rules and commit to reading all amendments and updates at the time of registration and throughout the year.
D. I will not attempt to cover up or conceal any conduct of an individual that is, or may be, in breach of this Code and will report any violations.
E. I will fully cooperate with Skate Canada’s investigations.
F. I understand that a violation of this Code on my part may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion from Skate Canada.
