 Policies 2019-2020

 

The PORT CREDIT SKATING CLUB (“PCSC”, “Club”) is not responsible for loss or damage of property, or injuries sustained by skaters while participating in Club activities.

The Code of Conduct/Ice Courtesy policy applies to everyone. Violations to the PCSC code of conduct will not be tolerated.

The PCSC abides by the Skate Canada Code of Ethics, as well as their Safe Sport (including harassment, bullying, discrimination, helmet use and concussion) policies.

The Board of Directors (“the Board”) reserves the right to change ice times or programs, and to pre-empt ice time for test days and for skater development programs.

The Board reserves the right to assess each skater’s qualifications in order to place him/her in the appropriate program.

PreCanSkate, CanSkate and Adult CanSkate participants must wear mittens and a CSA approved hockey helmet, regardless of age, until they have passed level 5. Skaters will be asked to leave the ice if they are not wearing an approved helmet and mittens. No stickers are permitted on the helmet in compliance with safety standards.

SKATE CANADA

Skaters registering for programs at PCSC will be registered as members of Skate Canada for the current skating season (September 1 to August 31). Skate Canada membership includes insurance coverage and access to all Skate Canada programs. PCSC provides skaters’ information, including name, address and birthdate to Skate Canada for membership purposes only. We do not share this information with any third party.

Any skater whose home club is not PCSC must hold a current registration with Skate Canada. The Skate Canada number must be provided when creating the “participant” account on the PCSC website. Please ensure that all information provided when creating the account is accurate (skater name, date of birth and Skate Canada number).

PCSC MEMBERSHIP 

  • One parent is a member of PCSC with full voting rights from the date of registration until August 31 of the current skating season.
  • Skaters 18 yrs of age and over hold their own voting rights.

PARENT ROLE

  • The term "parent" refers to parents and/or guardians of the skater(s).
  • A skater under the age of 12 must have a responsible adult present at the arena during all sessions.

COMMUNICATIONS

PCSC uses its website homepage and email to communicate with members. It is the responsibility of the member to ensure the email address on their account is current. Members may update their email subscription preferences at any time by logging into their profile under ‘My Account’, ‘My Message Lists’ and clicking the ‘Update’ button. If a member chooses to opt out of electronic communications from PCSC, they acknowledge that they may not receive important communications regarding club activities and notices regarding program information.

Members will not be contacted by other means unless there is an emergency.

PCSC QUALIFICATIONS

  • Qualifications for sessions are as of August 31, 2019. You may be asked to submit a copy of your test sheet to verify qualifications for tests passed during the summer and off-season tests. 

GUEST SKATING

  • Guest skate tickets MUST be purchased on the PCSC website prior to attending a session.
  • PCSC reserves the right to not allow guest skating on a session that is at capacity.
  • Guest Skaters must check in with an on-ice coach to ensure ice capacity and confirm their eligibility for the session prior to redeeming their ticket. Skaters must qualify for the skating session on which they wish to skate.
  • Non-Club members MUST purchase tickets online once an account has been created on the PCSC website (include the current Skate Canada number and correct date of birth in the skater/participant profile). 

SESSION CHANGES

 

If it becomes necessary to change the session on which a skater is registered, please contact the registrar at: registrar@portcreditfsc.ca. Changes are subject to availability.

  • One session change per skating program will be permitted at no charge.
  • Additional session changes will incur the Change Session Fee.
  • The difference in program fees must be paid before the skater can switch sessions.

Session changes as a result of a skater graduating into a higher level program will not incur a change session fee, but the difference in program fees must be paid before the skater can switch sessions.

MAKE-UP SESSIONS

  • “Make-up” sessions are not factored into program fees.  A skater cannot skate another day to make-up for a missed session.
  • Scheduled club events (e.g. test days) are calculated into program fees and therefore not considered a missed session.
