to obey all the rules and to behave in a sportsmanlike manner.
• Communication and cooperation are to be encouraged at all times.
• Families and Professional Coaches will respect the responsibility of the DSC Executive as
defined in the Club's Bylaws.
• Discussions pertaining to the operation of the Club, the coaching arrangements or any other
point that could result in hard feelings or poor morale between Club participants are
unacceptable. (Anyone receiving two written notices concerning inappropriate conduct
from the DSC Executive will result in dismissal from the Club without refund).
• The DSC reserves the right to cancel or change schedules or events in the best interest of
the Club.
• Rules administered by the DSC Executive may need to be amended from time to time as
required to successfully administer the Club's operation.
• Anyone wishing to register with the DSC must be a member in good standing; meaning all
fees and for bills from the previous year must be paid to both the Club and ALL Professional
Coaches.
• Anyone registering with the Devon Skating Club MUST take lessons from a Devon Skating
Club Professional Coach.
• All registration fees and deposits are due in full within the first 30 days of the skating
session. Skating privileges will be suspended if these dates are not met.
• Absolutely no refunds will be made to anyone that registers with the DSC after the first
three scheduled lessons have taken place. IT will not matter if the skater(s) have missed the
lessons.
• The $50.00 DSC Admin Fee (includes Skate Canada membership fee) is NON-REFUNDABLE.
• Every family registered with DSC in certain program levels is required to fundraise. Specific
details are in the various program descriptions.
• Concerns of coaches and/or family members should be handled in a discreet manner, as
quickly as possible with the DSC Executive. Any unresolved issues within the DSC may be
directed by any concerned party to the DSC Executive.
• All disagreements between skaters, which are presenting problems, should be directed to
the DSC Coach Liaison and/or President.
• Decisions pertaining to the individual skater's program and conduct shall be the
responsibility of the Professional Coach, in consultation with the DSC President and family.
• All skaters in the KidSkate and CanSkate Programs MUST wear a helmet on the ice that is
approved by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). Otherwise, for your child's safety,
he/she will not be allowed on the ice. ABSOLUTELY NO BIKE HELMETS ARE ALLOWED ON
THE ICE! If you are unsure of whether your helmet is safe, please talk to one of our
Professional Coaches.
• Skaters in the JumpStart program are to wear a helmet (as outlined above) unless otherwise
determined by the Coach.
• Those skaters in the Junior or STARSkate Program who choose to wear a helmet on the ice,
the above rule applies.
• Unacceptable conduct during a class may, at the Professional Coach's discretion, result in
the skater(s) being sent off the ice.
• Skaters must have permission from a Professional Coach to leave the ice at all times.
• The Professional Coaches have full authority on the ice surface at all times.
• Parents are welcome to watch all of the on-ice sessions. However, we ask that you watch
from the stands or the viewing area and NOT down at the boards or in the player's box. By
doing this you are insuring more productive sessions for both the skaters and coaches due
to less distractions. Please do not converse with your skater(s) from the bleacher area.
• All Kidstate and Canskate Skaters must dress appropriately for their lesson. Skating attire
should be worn so that the skater is allowed to move freely and keeps them warm while
learning their skills. All JumpStart, Junior, and STARSkate Program skaters will wear skating
dresses or skirts, warm-up pants or leggings. Test/Competitive skaters should wear skating
dresses or skirts. ABSOLUTELY NO JEANS OR HOODIES ARE TO BE WORN ON THE ICE BY ANY
SKATER! Hair should be held back with soft accessories to avoid head injuries and mitts
should be worn. If a skater is not dressed appropriately for his/her class, the Professional
Coaches have the right to send the skater off the ice.
• All skaters will refrain from publicly defacing the club on the internet in public forms such as
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
• It is a requirement for one member of the coaching staff to remain at the arena until all
skaters have been picked up from the rink. In the event of a late pick-up, a coach will
remain with the skater and the skate family will be charged at a rate of $10.00 for each 10
minutes required. An invoice will be sent to the skate family and is to be paid within 15
days.
VOLUNTEERING / FUNDRAISING COMMITMENTS:
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 Devon Skating Club you understand that volunteering and
fundraising is important and that 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 commitment before the end of the season.
VOLUNTEERING COMMITMENT:
• ALL registered skaters will be required to provide a post-dated cheque for Volunteer
commitments. Info is as follows:
• The volunteering commitment is a minimum 3 hour shift per family, per season.
• The volunteer deposit is $150.00 per family, per season.
• THE CHEQUE FOR $150.00 IS TO BE POSTDATED FOR MARCH 20, 2020. This cheque must
be given to a board member on the first day of skating.
• Once commitments have been reconciled, cheques will be destroyed. If you would prefer
your cheque to be returned, please contact the Treasurer at treasurer@devonskating.com
BEFORE February 25th, 2020.
• If you do not fulfill your volunteering commitment, your cheque will be deposited after the
Yearend Carnival. Cheques may be cashed as early as March 20, 2020.
• If an additional volunteer shift is taken on, please consider this an appreciated donation of
your time. We will not be crossing over volunteer and fundraising commitments as we have
in past years as this becomes cumbersome to track at our yearend reconciliation.
• Volunteer opportunities will be posted on our website. Please monitor the site and sign
up early!
FUNDRAISING COMMITMENT:
KIDSKATE AND CANSKATE SKATE FUNDRAISING:
The price for the KidSkate and CanSkate programs are without any fundraising commitments.
To offset program prices, the skating family may participate in the fundraising events put
together by the Devon Skating Club throughout the skating season. The skating family may
fundraise up to 5 points per day per session that the child is registered in. For example, if the
skater is registered in one day per session (2 sessions total/season), the skate family would be
able to fundraise 10 points per season. The $100.00 will be credited at yearend reconciliation.
At checkout, you will be able to indicate whether you would like to participate in the optional
fundraising option to reduce your child's program fees.
JUMPSTART, JUNIOR, AND STARSKATE FUNDRAISING:
• Fundraising commitment will be required for each JumpStart, Junior, and
STARSkate skater. There will be multiple fundraising opportunities throughout the skating
season and families will have the option of choosing which / how many fundraisers they
partake in to fulfill their commitment. There is a $750.00 (75 point) cap on fundraising
requirements for immediate families with more than 3 children in skating each season.
• There will be more information regarding the season's fundraisers in October 2019.
• The fundraising deposit is $250.00 per season, per skater.
• ONE CHEQUE (per skater) FOR $250.00 IS TO BE POSTDATED FOR MARCH 1, 2020. This
cheque must be given to a board member on the first day of skating.
• Once commitments have been reconciled, cheques will be destroyed. If you would prefer
your cheque to be returned, please contact the Treasurer at treasurer@devonskating.com
BEFORE February 25th, 2020.
• If you do not fulfill your fundraising commitment, your cheque will be deposited after the
final fundraiser is complete. Cheques may be cashed as early as March 1, 2019.
• Sometimes, skating families prefer not to become involved in fundraising
commitments. If this is your choice, please let us know via
email (fundraisingcoordinator@devonskating.com) so we can hold the cheques for cashing
at the end of the season and refrain from sending you fundraising updates throughout the
year.
EMERGENCY CONTACT POLICY:
KIDSKATE / CANSKATE FAMILIES: Parents must be at the arena for their skater(s) entire skate
session.
JUMPSTART / JUNIOR / STARSKATE FAMILIES: Although the Devon Skating Club encourages all
parents to attend their skater’s lessons, we do realize that it is not always possible to watch
each skate session.
In the event of an accident, medical emergency, or dispute, the Devon Skating Club requires
each skater to have a designated emergency contact that is available to be at the rink within
15 minutes from time of contact. This emergency contact may be a parent / legal
guardian or another adult whom is appointed by the registering parent / legal guardian. This
point of contact must be able to stay with the skater until an incident has been resolved,
enabling the coach(es) to return to their duties on the ice.
The emergency contact info collection will be prompted upon registration for this skating
season.
If there is to be a change to the designated emergency contact, please notify the coach and
registrar at registrar@devonskating.com.
