When you register with CSC you become a member of Skate Canada and are issued a membership number. The Skate Canada membership fee (paid annually without prorating with a membership year of September 1 to August 31) is submitted directly to the Skate Canada National Office in Ottawa. The membership fee provides accident insurance at a substantially lower cost, access to high quality internationally recognized learn-to-skate, powerskate and figure skating programs, coaching by qualified NCCP certified professional coaches and access to program materials and merchandise.
Appendix: Notice of Collection Statement
Cancellations received in writing up to two (2) business days prior to the program start date are entitled to a refund of the program fees paid minus a $25 administration fee and the $45 Skate Canada membership fee. Within two (2) business days of, or after, the program start date, a pro-rated refund of the program fees paid will be granted for a cancellation due to a medical reason or a move out of the Calgary area only. The $45 Skate Canada fee and the $25 administration fees are non-refundable.
Refund forms and supporting documents can be sent to Crowchild Skating Club by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to 185 Scenic Acres Drive NW, Calgary, Alberta T3L 1L4.

Crowchild Skating Club reserves the right to:
Apart from our professional coaches, our club depends solely on volunteers to ensure a smooth operating year. In order to be successful and share the workload, we require volunteers to fulfill many tasks. All families are required to apply at checkout a $500 deposit via installment payment option to cover the Volunteering, Fundraising & Music-Playing Commitments. If the commitments are satisfied, the installment will be deleted.
If you are registering one (1) skater, your Volunteering Commitment is 10 hours total for the skating season (September to April). If you are registering two or more (2+) skaters, your Volunteering Commitment is 12 hours total for the skating season.
Your Volunteering Commitment can be satisfied by signing up for various tasks to be completed, or by earning Volunteering Credits for exceeding your Fundraising Commitment amount or bringing food/drinks to club potlucks, for example. We recognize that some of you simply cannot volunteer your time, which is why we will provide other opportunities to earn Volunteering Credits as well.
Fundraising is a necessary component in order to offset program cost. At Crowchild Skating Club we offer the opportunity to raise funds through various means. Each skater is required to raise at least $100 net for the club.
One of the most crucial aspects of our on-ice program is to ensure that we have a responsible adult in the music box during ice times. Each family will be responsible for their music-playing commitments. Music-playing commitments will be based on registration.
Crowchild Skating Club (CSC) is committed to ensuring that all skaters have the opportunity to participate in a safe and welcoming environment that is encouraging and promotes their overall development. Skaters, officials, coaches, employees, club board members, skating school administrators, volunteers, alumni, as well as parents and guardians who participate in and observe related activities, all must agree to and comply with the Skate Canada Code of Ethics(see attached). In addition or for further emphasis, all persons who participate in or observe related activities of CSC must agree to and comply with the following:
By registering or participating in, or observing, one of our programs, you agree to comply with the above commitments that constitute Crowchild Skating Club’s Code of Conduct.
