Star Programs: No refunds except in the case of season ending injury or illness, or in the event of relocation. Request must be submitted in writing within 14 days of the last skate. The refund will be prorated from the date of the request, the Skate Canada insurance fee will not be refunded.. Note - voluntary withdrawl from our program does not entitle the skater to a refund, however each case may be reviewed and decided upon by the NFSC Board (such as cases of severe financial hardship, terminal illness in the family, etc). All decisions of the board will be final.
Refunds are subject to a $50 administration fee.
We will not be offering any refunds for covid related restrictions like vaccine mandates for spectators, mask mandates, etc. If you need to withdraw for this reason, a club credit will be issued to be used toward future programming.

The Nechako Figure Skating Club will share the accomplishments and events of our skaters with a larger community. This includes photos, interviews, etc, which may be shared/publishes on our website, social media, media releases and or news outlets like the newspaper, etc.

There will be a surcharge of $25 for NSF cheques. If an NSF cheque is received more than once, a cash or money order basis will apply thereafter and any post dated cheques will be returned to you. Until payment of the NSF cheque has been covered, including the surcharge, the member will be considered not in good standing and will not be permitted on the ice.
Registration is based on a full season and can be paid in up to 3 equal payments. Each payment must be paid on time and in full prior to the skater participating in the program.

IMPORTANT NOTE: COSTUME FEES, PRIVATE COACHING AND TEST FEES ARE NOT COVERED IN YOUR REGISTRATION!
While we will do our best not to cancel, if we have less than 3 skaters for any given session, we reserve the right to cancel that session. We will give as much notice as possible.
There will be no refunds or credits given for cancelled sessions (for any reason) or stat holidays, etc.
Inclement Weather/Cold Weather:
All lessons will be considered voluntary if the temperature falls below -29. Temperature will be based on School District 91's bus garage temperatures. If the coaches are unable to attend due to inclement or cold weather, we reserve the right to cancel.
Dress Code for CanSkate:
All participants must wear a CSA approved HOCKEY helmet. No exceptions.
The fees you pay for registration are only a portion of the actual costs. Therefore it is an expectation from the club that each family volunteers throughout the season. There must be volunteering in some capacity for the skater to participate in our club. If you do not sign up, a space will be assigned for you. If you cannot fulfil this role, it is YOUR responsibility to find another appropriate designate for that assigned duty.
If your skater plans to participate in an ice show, one adult per family will be required to volunteer in show production in some capacity - noting there are tasks that can be done prior to the day of the event.
Every effort will be made for open communication between coaches, executive, parents or caregivers and skaters. All questions should be dealt with in a timely manner from all parties. All communications shall be respectful.
Meetings will be scheduled as needed to help plan events and it is the responsibility of each family to attend these meetings for regular updates. It is also expected for parents to monitor their email, the club facebook, the website and the club bulletin board to keep themselves informed.
Fees for private coaching apply to those in Star 2 and 3+ programs. They will also apply to any participants in the Star 1 program if you attend a competition or jamboree - you will be billed for coaching fees and a portion of the coach(es) travel expenses.
Coaches will bill monthly and payment needs to be made within 2 weeks. Any invoices under $5 will be added to the next bill, unless it's your final invoice for the season.
The coaches will email a full list of policies.
