Peaks Figure Skating Club – Club Ice Policy
The Peaks Figure Skating Club regards club ice as a time for serious practice in which a skater has the opportunity to improve their skating skills. It is a time for program practice and for lessons as well as occasional activities and clinics. Club Ice may also be used for show rehearsals. Its purpose is also for club members to come together in a spirit of friendship and harmony, to encourage one another, and to skate from the heart.
All Full Home Club and Basic Skills Members of the Peaks Figure Skating Club skate free of charge on all club ice sessions as a benefit of Club Membership. Associate and Adult Members are also welcome to skate on club ice at half off of the session fee ($5.00) on each club ice.
Club member professionals may teach lessons on club ice to club members so long as there are no activities scheduled for the session, the professional maintains liability insurance and provides a certificate of insurance naming the Peaks Figure Skating Club as an additional insured. Associate professional members pay a $3.00 coaching fee per club ice session. Non club professionals (visiting coaches) may teach lessons on club ice so long as there are no activities scheduled for the session, and must pay a $9.00 coaching fee to the club per club ice session. When introduced by a club professional, a prospective club member may skate on a maximum of one (1) club ice session free of charge. The club professional will give the skater a Club Ice Pass to present to the Club Ice Monitor.
Skaters on club ice must either be taking lessons in the Learn-to-Skate program and/or private lessons with a coach (though not necessarily during club ice), or they must be a recreational skater able to blend in with the higher level of skaters on these sessions. Learn-To-Skate students and recreational skaters who are not taking private lessons on club ice, must have passed at least the Basic Skills Level 4 test or equivalent of; forward crossovers, three-turns, backward skating and stopping. There is no minimum test level requirement for skaters that are in a private lesson on club ice; professionals are responsible for instructing students on proper skating safety and etiquette. Family members of club members may be invited to skate on special family club ice activities.
Club volunteers will monitor club ice for safety. The following rules apply to all skaters on club ice sessions.
