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 (link) 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. (link)

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 approved helmet and mittens. No stickers are permitted on the helmet in compliance with safety standards.

  • Any skater whose home club is not PCSC must hold 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). A Skate Canada Duplication Registration Administration Fee will be charged due to member error in creating skater profile.

  • 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 => Communication Preferences and clicking the Update 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 the program information.

 Guest Skating

  • Guest skating will be charged at a fee of $25 per session and $30 for non-home club members per session. 
  • Contact the skater’s coach to ensure that there is space on the session when the guest pass will be used
  • Guest Skating Passes can be purchased directly through the PCSC Website under Guest Skating and must be provided at the time of the skate.

  • 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.

  • No make-up sessions or refund will be provided due to cancelled sessions beyond our control.

COVID-19 Guidelines Effective May 24, 2022

  • The PCSC continues to monitor the impact that COVID has on our programming and coaches, and will continue to respond as required. 
  • The club continues to follow all Peel Public Health guidelines related to COVID and these guidelines can find at: https://www.peelregion.ca/coronavirus/prevention/#risk
  • Masking is not mandatory however PCSC does continue to strongly encourage all skaters wear a medical grade mask to protect themselves and others on the ice. 
  • Please be aware that for many of our coaches, coaching at the club is their only source of income, and being sick and unable to coach impacts their livelihood.  As a result, the coaches may ask skaters to wear a mask during private lessons, and/or may maintain physical distancing from unmasked skaters.  Our coaches are all professionals who care for the skaters and will continue to coach to the best of their ability.
  • PCSC does ask that skaters continue to screen for symptoms prior to coming to the rink.  Skaters who display any possible COVID symptoms may be asked to either wear a mask or to leave the ice.
  • As a reminder, should the skater or a family member be exposed to, or test positive for, COVID, PCSC asks that skaters follow the Ontario guidelines for quarantining and masking.  Current guidelines can be found here: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/exposed?utm_source=mobile-app-organic&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=covid-alert-mobile-app-english&utm_content=covidalertapppage-text#symptoms
