Schools are getting into the competitive spirit through the CollegiateSkate program which brings together skaters from different test and/or competitive backgrounds to skate together as a team representing their school. Skaters participate in a variety of events such as singles, danced, pairs and synchronized skating and based on their placements in these events, accumulate points for their team. The school with the highest point total wins the overall competition.


Varsity figure skating is currently offered only by Ontario University Athletics (OUA), in partnership with Skate Canada, and is not part of U Sports (formerly Canadian Interuniversity Sport, CIS). Ten Ontario Conference universities compete annually for the top spot at the invitational competitions and the OUA Figure Skating Championships.
