Skating Competitions

Pre-Competition Information

Competition Registration

Registration will be held online using Uplifter. Please check Skate Ontario's website for information on competitions and how to register.



Competition schedules will be posted on the Skate Ontario website. Please check with your coach if you have difficulty locating the competition schedule.



The coach is the professional technical expert - he or she is a source of information and expertise that both the skater and the parent can rely upon at competition time.



A master copy will need to be submitted at the time of competition registration in mp4 format. You must bring a backup copy (on USB stick) of the skater’s music on the day of the competition. Always make sure that your USB stick is labelled with the skater's name and club.


On Competition Day

A skater should plan to arrive at the competition at least one hour prior to his or her scheduled event. This will allow time for changing, costume adjustments, lacing up skates, last minute chats with coaches, etc.


After the Competition Is Over - For MDSC Skaters

MDSC skaters will have their pictures taken for the local newspaper usually within a week following a competition. Watch for notices on the dates and times as to when these photographs will take place. Skaters should wear competition outfits for this photography session, and should bring along any awards received at the competition (e.g. medals, ribbons).
