A $50 non-refundable deposit is due upon registration plus your Skate Canada and Safe Sport fee. Balance must accompany deposit and may be post-dated (15th of September, October, November & December). Cash, cheque, debit, VISA and MasterCard are accepted.
If a skater no longer wishes to skate, please inform the executive in writing as soon as possible. Pro-rated refunds will be made, excluding the non-refundable deposit, Skate Canada and Safe Sport fee. No refunds will be issued after December 1, 2016, except for medical reasons with a doctor's certificate.
Skate Canada Fee
When you sign up for a skating program at our club, you are required to also become a member of Skate Canada. This annual $32.65 fee is valid from Sept. 1 2016 to Aug. 31 2017 (you will only pay it once during a season, no matter how many CanSkate or other sessions you register for). It includes insurance coverage, along with access to all Skate Canada programs. Please note that your skater information will be shared with Skate Canada through this website.
This fee does not stay with the club, but is sent on to Skate Canada in Ottawa. For more information about Skate Canada, visit www.skatecanada.ca
Safe Sport Fee
Skate Canada places great importance on creating a fun and safe environment for our skating family, especially children and youth. We create this atmosphere as a reflection of our safety culture that extends throughout the organization. Our goal is to position ourselves as the Safe Sport leader in Canada and the world.
Skate Canada has always strived to create a positive sport environment built on the values of fairness, excellence, inclusion and fun. We are proud to support the True Sport movement and its principles including: Go For It; Keep It Fun; Play Fair; Stay Healthy; Respect Others; and Give Back.
Sport can also be a high-risk environment for misconduct, including bullying and harassment, physical and sexual abuse and mental and physical injury. Our sections, clubs, skating schools, coaches, registrants, parents and all other stakeholders expect best-in-class safety programs that will address the full spectrum of issues. The complete Safe Sport framework we have developed does this. Implementation will begin in the 2016-2017.
For us to follow best-in-class standards and ensure sustainability of the Safe Sport initiative, a fee of $3 per registrant, which includes skaters, , coaches, club/school board members, officials and on-ice volunteers, will be implemented for the 2016-2017 registration season. This fee is to be collected by clubs and skating schools. Payment of this fee by clubs and skating schools will be collected by Skate Canada in the normal course.

Western Ontario Lottery Books
In order to keep our costs lower we do fundraise once a year through the Western Ontario section lottery books. Tickets are sold for $2.00 each with the fabulous prizes to be won. We do collect in advance the value of these books at registration and you will return the completed tickets to the club when complete. Taking part in this fundraiser makes our skaters eligible to apply for bursaries within our section and help the club grow without passing on the costs directly to the skaters. If you have multiple skaters with the club, we only issue one book per family to sell.
