PORT COQUITLAM SKATING CLUB POLICIES
 

 

REGISTRATION:

Registration priority will be given to Port Coquitlam Skating Club members who are in good standing.  The Director of Skating (in consultation with the club coaches and the board of directors) will set session qualifications, and limits based on Skate Canada regulations for insurance and safety.  Once the registration deadline is passed, skaters are considered on a first come, first serve basis according to registration priority policies. 

 

WITHDRAWAL OF PROGRAMS:

The Port Coquitlam Skating Club has a “No Refund” policy and reserves the right to change or cancel sessions (for various reasons including safety hazards due to inclement weather, city equipment failure, and/or city decision of facility closure).  Notification will be sent to the email listed.  The club itself is responsible solely for any inquiry, and is not the responsibility of the City of Port Coquitlam. Please direct all questions directly to the club contacts on the website.  

*Exceptions, due to extreme circumstances (injury), will be considered through the Port Coquitlam Skating Club's Board of Directors.  If a refund is approved, it will be returned as a credit for future registrations.  A doctor's note (medical certification) will be required for injuries.

There are no refunds or reimbursements once a season begins. Skaters may withdraw prior to season start date forfeiting a $25 administration fee.

PAYMENT OF SKATING FEES:

The  Port Coquitlam Skating Club accepts Visa or MasterCard through the online registration program for the payment of fees. Skaters with outstanding fees will not be permitted on the ice until fees are paid. ​It is the member’s responsibility to ensure their account is in good standing.

 

PAYMENT SCHEDULE​:

Depending on the length of a program, skaters may have the option of paying by installments. Payment schedule options are shown during the registration process.
 

BUY-ONs:

Buy-Ons will be permitted on Junior, Intermediate, Senior, Open, Adult/Teen, and Dance ice sessions when space is available.

Buy-On ice time is available for purchase for STARSkate, and Competitive level skaters at a cost of $16.00 per hour.  Skaters purchase Buy-On ice time through EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) using:

Email:  pocofsc@gmail.com          (e-transfer must include:  Skater's Name, Coach's Name, & Date of Buy-On)

PAYMENT MUST BE MADE PRIOR TO SKATERS STEPPING ONTO THE ICE. 

Skaters who have outstanding fees will not be permitted to skate until fees are paid in full.

Priority will be given to Port Coquitlam Skating Club members.  Out of club coaches are permitted with prior approval from the Director of Skating.  Out of club skaters must show Director of Skating proof of their Skate Canada Registration.
 

ICE CREDITS:

Skaters who receive ice credits from the Port Coquitlam Skating Club must use their ice credits while they are a registered member of the Port Coquitlam Skating Club.  If a skater registers with another club (changes their club membership through Skate Canada to another club), said skater forfeits all of their Port Coquitlam Skating Club ice credits.  Ice credits are non-transferable.

In order to comply with Skate Canada BC/YT Section Program Assistant Recognition Guidelines, and BC Labour Laws, Program Assistant ice credits/gifts cannot be exchanged for cash value at any time.

 

VOLUNTEER HOURS:

Every family (from Shining Stars Academy, Star Academy, STARSkate, and Competitive Skate) is required to complete at least two hours of volunteer service for the Port Coquitlam Skating Club.  We are a non-profit society, and we require members to help with the smooth running of this club.  The board will provide further details on the tasks.

If two hours are completed, this $30.00 charge will become a credit on your account, redeemable for future registrations.  CANSkaters and Teen/Adult session skaters are exempt from this requirement.

SKATE CANADA HELMET POLICY:

All CANSkate, Shining Stars Academy, Star Academy, Hockey/Ringette Skating Skills Development, and Adult CANSkate participants (up to and including Stage 5) must wear a CSA approved hockey helmet while on the ice.  Clubs and skating schools must ensure this policy is enforced during all skating activities including competitions, carnival days, or any other special on ice activities throughout the season for this level of skater.  Clubs and skating schools may choose to expand the use of CSA approved hockey helmets in their club as they see necessary.

This policy is a minimum standard.
