Membership year is from September 1 to August 31.
This fee is non-refundable
Payment of Skating Fees
Full payment of skating fees must be included with all registrations or they will not be processed.
A $25.00 service fee will be charged for each returned cheque.
The Cheam Skating Club does not offer refunds except in the case of medical circumstances. You must submit a written request to the executive requesting a refund. Refunds will be considered on a case by case basis. If granted, the refund will be pro-rated from the date of the last day skated and a ice credit will be issued. No cash refunds will be given.
Selling and Trading Sessions
Skaters are not permitted to sell or trade sessions. If you miss your regular session on a particular day, you may not skate on another session in lieu of the one you missed without paying a buy-on fee. You may not have another skater or member of your family skate on sessions for days that you are away without paying a buy-on fee.
What Session Fees Include
Intro to CanSkate, CanSkate, Advanced CanSkate, Pre-Hockey, and Jr. Achievers include instruction by a Skate Canada qualified professional coach.
StarSkate and Competitive: Session fee is for the ice time only and does not include instruction. It is the parent and skater's responsibility to contact the coach of their choice to make lesson arrangements and coordinate ice sessions prior to registration. All instructional fees are paid to the coach directly.
Skaters are expected to skate on the sessions for which they are qualified. If skating up by the coaches recommendation, it must be approved by the executive first. If it is deemed to be unsafe for the skater, or other skaters on the ice, the executive may remove the skater from the session.
On Ice Rules - Freeskate Session Rules
Soloists have the right of way. Other skaters must avoid undue interference with the soloist, and the soloist must also keep an alert eye open. When the jump harness is in use, the skater in it has the harness right of way over the soloist. All skaters are expected to take part in the group lessons, if it is included in their session.
On Ice Rules - Dance Session Rules
Skaters in a lesson dancing to the music being played have the right of way. Skaters dancing to the specific music being played have second priority. Freeskating and skills are not permitted
