Program Assistants (PA’s) and associated Fees

All STARSkaters are encouraged to become Program Assistants for the younger skaters during the Learn-to-Skate sessions.  Their duties include assisting the professional coaches during lessons, leading activities in the warm-up and cool-down portion of the sessions, and helping our new skaters to get their balance on the ice. This is an excellent way for STARSkaters who are in high school to earn community service hours! 

All StarSkaters who have completed a full StarSkate season will be expected to volunteer a minimum number of hours as a Program Assistant on CanSkate sessions. If a skater is unable to complete the minimum required hours or if a skater chooses not to be a Program Assistant there is an opt-out fee. 

Minimum Hours/Fees for StarSkaters registered for 1-2 sessions per week:

One CanSkate Session per week for a minimum of 20 hours per skating year.  Opt out fee/failure to complete fee is $100.  Skaters must provide a $100 posted cheque dated for May 1st, 2019 which will be returned upon completion of minimum hours.  Alternatively if the skater is going to opt out of the PA requirement $100 will be required immediately.

Minimum Hours/Fees for StarSkaters registered for 3+ sessions per week:

Two CanSkate Session per week for a minimum of 40 hours per skating year.  Opt out fee/failure to complete fee is $200.  During the first week of skating lessons, skaters must provide a $200 posted cheque dated for May 1st, 2019 which will be returned upon completion of minimum hours.  If the minimum hours are not completed then the cheque will be cashed.  Alternatively if the skater is going to opt out of the PA requirement a $200 payment will be required during the first week of skating lessons.  This fee can be paid in the office or online.
