Skate Regina Constitution and By-laws
The competition schedule has been posted on: http://www.skatecanadasaskatchewan.com/competitions/.It is the competitor’s responsibility to download the announcement, read carefully, and mail or courier the completed entry form to the registrar of the competition. LATE ENTRIES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR ANY COMPETITION. All completed entry forms must be handed on by any acceptable means to the Board, Coach or one of their representatives.
It is the responsibility of the skater to organize, pay and present himself (herself) at the correct rink on the correct day, at the correct time. There is no guarantee that these test days will be published ahead of time on the Skate Regina schedule.
There will be no confirmations except for those generated by the Website. Skaters will be notified if a session is overbooked or if there are any other changes such as a session cancellation.
Ice allocations are done by the city and are out of the control of the Skate Regina skating club. Check the Skate Regina bulletin boards at the arenas for any changes or cancellations. CanSkate parents should check their CanSkate calendars. The Skate Regina Board and Coaches will do their utmost to update the calendars on the Skate Regina website. They can however not be held responsible for missing or inaccurate information.
These ice credits are earned by parents and/or skaters by volunteering as Program Assistants or contributing by volunteering at activities which will be authorized during the year. These credits will be taken into account when registering. Some skaters may also have credits from overpayment or other sources. These will also be taken into account and can be used towards any Skate Regina product registration up to a year from the date of issue and at the exception of the yearly fees such as the Skate Canada or Skate Regina membership fees.
TRANSFER OF VOUCHERS or Ice credits – Credit vouchers cannot be transferred to another member of the Skate Regina skating club.
Only payment methods identified on club registration forms will be accepted. No special arrangements will be accepted other than those arrangements listed on club registration material pertaining to when payment should be made. Payment will be accepted in full, or in portions as identified on the registration forms only. No exceptions will be made to this rule unless expressly arranged and approved by the board of directors in writing no later than 45 days in advance of the scheduled start of the skating session.
PARTIAL SKATER REGISTRATION - While Skate Regina would prefer fully paid registrations, we recognize that some skaters require only a portion of the ice time for a given session. There are 2 options to pay for a given session (or group thereof): pay in full or by installments. There are no additional fees for paying off a balance over time. Installments usually span over a period of the season divided in thirds.
Should the skaters decide to pay off this balance in full, it can be done at any time, through the website or in person via personal cheque or cash.
All payments shall be made in Canadian dollars (CAD).
We accept Cash, Cheques and Visa/MasterCard:
Declined Payments/NSF Cheques
There will be an administration fee for NSF cheques, charged at the current bank rate and subject to change without notice. CREDIT CARD: There will be a $40.00 administration fee for all declined credit card transactions. In all cases of decline (NSF, declined credit, stopped payment, etc.) one additional attempt will be made by the club administration. If payment continues to be declined the skater will be considered not in good standing with the club and will not be permitted to participate in any of the club activity, including regular skating sessions, until such time as full payment has been made. If payment has not been made within 30 days from date of decline or NSF, the member shall be considered as having terminated their membership. No refunds will be provided for any partial monies paid and all privileges will be permanently revoked.
Fees will not be refunded for withdrawals after the sessions start except in a few unusual circumstances and an administration fee will be charged for these. There will be no administration charge for withdrawals after registration but before the session begins, as long as that withdrawal occurs during the open and published window, as shown on the Skate Regina website. The Skate Canada fee and Skate Regina fee are not refundable. (It should be noted that “unusual circumstances” will be at the discretion of the Board of Directors). Any skater that misses four or more consecutive weeks due to an on ice injury on a LSC Session, and supplies a doctor’s note to the ice convenor for the level they are currently skating that indicates the injury is the result of the on ice activity and has evidence the injury occurred during a Skate Regina session, is entitled to a credit of the prorated amount of the session amount missed.
CanSkate WITHDRAWALS – A refund will be given to parents of New CanSkate skaters if that refund request is received in writing within 4 weeks of the start date of the PreCanSkater less a $30.00 administration fee, and the Skate Canada/Skate Regina membership fees.
StarSkate withdrawls: no refund is to be expected, unless with a doctor's note.
STARSkate Makeup/Replacement Session Policy
STARSkate and Adult skaters will be allowed to make-up for missed sessions only if the reason for which they missed their session(s) was because of an injury preventing them from skating or skating related activities such as competitions. Notice of the chosen make-up session should be given at least 1 week prior to that session. The skater must be aware that the request may not be granted if the makeup session requested is full or if the skater is not qualified to skate on the session requested for the makeup.
Also, arranging for makeup ice does not include coaches’ time or a programmed lesson. It is the skater’s responsibility to schedule time with his or her coach. It is the responsibility of the skater to have given ample and enough warning to their coach so that their missing the lesson does not incur any cost to them from the coach. Skate Regina cannot be held responsible for managing the cost or communication of a a missed / madeup lesson between the skaters and their coaches.
STARSkate Buy-on Policy
StarSkaters are encouraged to buy additional ice at the regular published cost (refer to the Skate Regina website). However, the skater must be aware that the request may not be granted if the buy-on session requested is full or if the skater is not qualified to skate on the session requested for the makeup. Also, buying additional ice does not include coaches’ time or a programmed lesson. It is the skater’s responsibility to schedule time with his or her coach. Please note, there is no wait list for buy-on ice time.
STARSkate Registration Wait List
STARSkaters are encouraged to add their name to the registration wait list when a session they wish to purchase is full. This is the only time that skaters will be allowed to add their name to a wait list. If and when a session has a spot available, the skater will be contacted to complete their registration and payment for the session.
Guest Skating / Guest Coaching
The Skate Regina office/Board must be contacted well before the session. If fees are applicable because of buy-on ice, they will be handled by the Skate Regina member in the event the guest is a coach and the lesson is meant to be a lesson from that guest coach to the Skate Regina member. Guest skating will only be allowed on sessions that are not full, where the skater is qualified for that session and for which a partial or full Skate Regina membership fee has been collected. The guest skater will have to be in good standing in regards to their Skate Canada membership fees as no non-Skate Canada members will be accepted on the Skate Regina managed ice. Only coaches under contract with the Skate Regina skating club or whom have special permission previously arranged with the Board of the Skate Regina skating club my give lessons on Skate Regina managed ice.
All registered skaters accept and release, from any and all claims, the Skate Regina skating Club, it’s directors, employees and coaches and agree that none of them shall be held responsible for any accident, injury, or loss, however caused, whether on or off club premises, ice or other facilities. All registered skaters accept and give permission to the Skate Regina skating club to photograph/video the registered skater for the purposes of club advertisement and promotion. All registered skaters are aware that these photographs/videos and/or the registered skaters name may be used on the club’s website, newsletter, sent to the media or used in other club promotions. Registered skaters also authorize the Skate Regina club to release private information of the registered skater to the City of Regina for purposes of their ice allocation policy.
Skate Canada / Skate Regina Fees
All skaters must be members of Skate Canada in order to be eligible to receive badges, try tests, skate on any of the Skate Regina sessions or compete in any category. This involves an annual fee as set by Skate Canada. Your present membership expires August 31. You must register for the new skating year if you have not already done so at Fall School. The annual Skate Regina membership fee must also have been paid. Members of other clubs, who do not wish to change clubs, must register with their club and pay whatever fee is mandatory as per the Skate Canada laws and regulations before starting to skate with Skate Regina at which time a possibly pro-rated Skate Regina fee might be assessed and added to whatever ice cost the skater might want to purchase. The skaters must provide proof of registration with Skate Canada by showing either a Board member or a Skate Regina coach proof of payment of such fees.
StarSkate Groups and other Figure Skating groups
Curriculums and a fee structure are created and provided to all figure-skating skaters for the StarSkate Group sessions. Should a coach decide to create a group of figure-skating in an ad-hoc manner, the skaters understand that this is done outside any kind of Skate Regina organization. The way the coach will provide lessons to his or her group of skaters, his (her) fee structure or the amount of time spent on each skater or the whole group is none of the Skate Regina skating club’s responsibility.
It is also made clear to the Skate Regina coaches that these ‘ad-hoc’ groups will not be larger than 4 (four) skaters when these groups are created in a consistent manner, meaning more than twice in a row for the same session’s name within the same season, regardless of the day of the week. Example: during a ‘FreeSkate’ session on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, a coach will not be able to create a group that is non-“StarSkate Group”, for more than 4 skaters, beyond Monday and Tuesday, during that season. That coach will have to break that group into a smaller one on Wednesday before re-constructing that group next time for another 2 sessions.
