Policies

 

Helmet Use Policy

Effective Date: July 1, 2011,  Revised Date: October 1, 2011
1.0 General
All Skate Canada member clubs and skating schools who offer a CanSkate program must ensure all CanSkate and Adult CanSkate participants up to and including Stage 5 must wear a CSA approved hockey helmet while on the ice. This policy also applies to all other Skate Canada programs, therefore anyone who lacks good control/balance when skating forward, backward and has difficulty stopping, as well as maneuvering around obstacles on the ice must wear a CSA approved hockey helmet. 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. This policy is a minimum standard. Sections, at their discretion, may impose a higher standard which all clubs and skating schools within the sections’ boundaries must adopt and implement.
 
2.0 Helmet Use During a Competition or Test Day
A skater beyond a CanSkate Stage 5 level that chooses to wear a CSA approved hockey helmet during a competition or test day will not be subjected to any deductions in relation to the use of a CSA approved hockey helmet.

Payment Policy

We accept Mastercard, Visa and cheques. Fees are payable in Canadian funds. The full program fee paid by credit must be made at time of registration unless the program specifies pay in installments. Payments by cheque must be received within 2 weeks after registration or prior to the first scheduled class to guarantee your enrollment. NSF cheques are subject to a $40 charge. 


 

Refund Policy

Skate Canada Membership fees are non-refundable. Program refunds will not be issued after the second class within a session unless approved by the club's board of directors after submitting a medical certificate and a written request for refund. A $50 administration fee will be applied to all refunds.

Volunteer/Fundraising Commitment

All sports clubs have a level of volunteer and fundraising commitment required by all members. Our club is no different. We are fortunate to participate in a casino every 3rd year which provides significant funding and affords the club the opportunity to refund the volunteer/fundraising fees to those members that complete their volunteer/fundraising commitment. By registering with the Ice Edge Skating Club you understand that voluteering and fundraising is important and thar you will participate to the best of your ability during the season. You also understand that you have an opportunity to earn your volunteer/fundraising fees back if you complete your committment before the end of the season.
