S.T.A.R.S. (Standardized Testing of Athleticism to Recognize Skaters) is a U.S. Figure Skating program designed to standardize testing of the athletic abilities that support development of on ice skills. The goals of S.T.A.R.S. are to promote the athletic development of our athletes and keep them safe and injury resistant by training their bodies ahead of the on-ice skills curve.
There are three primary areas measured: 1) Agility/Balance/Coordination, 2) Strength/Power, and 3) Flexibility
